Political and low pay

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

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

    Tons of smart people to work with and a friendly atmosphere make it a great place to jump start your career
    Lots of resources and little corporate red tape, makes running tests easy
    Hard work is rewarded
    Great work-life balance
    Free lunches on Fridays - actually great meals and not just a cold sandwich or half-hearted perk

    Cons

    There is still office politics, but you can't seem to ever avoid those
    Its a money driven company and industry, if you want to "save the world" you're better off somewhere elsewhere
