Political and low pay

I have been working at Cogo Labs

Pros

It's still a job, and you should still learn what you can.

Cons

#1 Big company politics at small company. Everyone is looking out for themselves. Perfect example is an underperforming employee who was kept around because someone married on the management team was sleeping with despite numerous complaints.
#2 Not a startup environment even though they claim to be. It's less fun and more cut throat. You are a worker bee. The payout is low, and you usually join a startup and give up salary for a payday later.

    Pros

    Working with extremely smart people in a super friendly environment. Never-ending snacks and fun company outings.

    Cons

    Hearing people drink outside at CBC during the summer while working inside. Office design is a bit haphazard and could use a facelift for a little more relaxation and flow. HVAC issues in the middle of summer can be brutal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Information between management teams needs to be better shared--this could happen through consolidation, through best-practice meetings, or more weekly meetings between related teams.
