I have been working at Cogo Labs full-time (Less than a year)

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 Management

More department outings!

We WISH the HVAC issues were limited to the middle of summer :( The building managers say a new system is on the way! We'll see! Thank you for the review!

    Pros

    - A lot of independence to think or come up with your own projects - Learn to code in Python, HTML, and SQL - Room for growth to lead your own team - Very intelligent people to work with - Work life balance is great - Equity benefits

    Cons

    - With independence comes less structure, but this is a preference - Salaries are OK

    Advice to Management

    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.

    This is great feedback, thank you so much. We agree that sharing information between teams could always be improved--it's super critical in an incubator like ours to make sure important new ... More

    Pros

    Not sure where the other reviewer was working... but there's very little politics, almost no red tape, and tons of resources at your disposal at Cogo. There are tons of brilliant employees and the environment is incredibly relaxed. -Tons of events with free food/beer -You get to use whatever tools/software you want -No BS... everyone here is driven by the end result - Tons of growth in the past year and a great deal of potential moving forward - Extremely interesting work... the data you get to work with here is the stuff of dreams - Managers are pragmatic

    Cons

    - Salaries are on the low side, but on par with what you'd expect from a startup. This will likely change in the coming years - Stressful - Incubator tries to fly under the radar (for various reasons) so very little name recognition

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the quality of the hiring up. In particular, try recruiting more analysts with a programming background.

    Thank you! And yes we agree we need more analysts who have programming backgrounds. We are looking! And don't forget about our referral bonus, if any amazing people cross your path!
