I worked at Cogent full-time (more than an year)

Pros

everyone has no clear defined job duties, good for youngster to get trained to be all arounded. highly recommended for this respect

Cons

years (decade) of rapid development, no clear design process or documentation, no formal regression verification, and customer specific delivery mentality against unrealistic deadline finally caught up in recent years

3M buyout almost 2 yrs, no real impact in engineering direction

Advice to ManagementAdvice

need a total face lift in legacy product, like a new 2nd generation product etc

Doesn't Recommend
