    I have been working at Cobec Consulting full-time (Less than a year)


    Cobec has created a family-like environment where hard work and new ideas are truly appreciated. Leadership empowers employees across the firm and everyone provides top-notch support to clients and each other. Cobec has a very flexible working environment and great benefits including team building events, gifts, and family activities. I have worked for a variety of public and private organizations and none comes close to Cobec!


    It’s refreshing that Cobec hires for the long term, not just for a contract. The only downside for me is that I didn’t make the move to Cobec sooner.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership continues to impress me with their transparency and inclusiveness. Every time I think working at Cobec can’t get any better, it does!! Expanding the client base in a well-planned manner will provide a lot of room for growth. Keep up the great job!

    Easy Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cobec Consulting (Washington, DC) in August 2016.


    Two sets of interviews. One- group phone interview. Two- in-person one-on-one interview. See below for types of interview questions. Then an offer. Slight negotiations during the offer process. After the acceptance of the offer, there was additional time prior to onboarding to do a background check. The background check took the longest- it's a Public Trust US government background check.

    Interview Questions

    • What prior experience do you have running a large project? What government contracting experience do you have? What are some work challenges you've experienced and how have you overcome them?   Answer Question
