    StarStarStarStarStar Former Regional Account Manager in Pasadena, California

    PTO is available immediately, you do get to buy stock options one year after you begin working there. Medical insurance is good.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former National Account Manager in Boston, Massachusetts

    The salary seems high at first, but once you realize that you won't hit your targets to get paid, you will see that that the package is low.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Regional Account Manager in Dallas, Texas

    the insurance is high and copayment and prescription coverage is high you may be better off getting your own insurance

    Cogent provides full benefit package; Medical, Dental, Vision, Flex Plan, 401K, Stock options, along with 2 weeks PTO. It is a great place to work for, as they are always trying to create ways to reward their employees.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Ashburn, Virginia

    Cheap insurance and benefits lacking. Company does not invest in employees. Obvious via benefit package offered. I would recommend staying away unless not other choice.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Benefits: 401k matching, % of insurance covered, transit benefits/parking are all less than an average company. PTO amount is good.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Boston, Massachusetts

    Health coverage is average at best. Expensive. Highest I’ve ever had. 401k match is only 2% but there’s no vesting schedule

  • Dec 28, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Herndon, Virginia

    health insurance is great, 401k is available, and stocks are given after one year of working
