    I worked at Cogent Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Valuable service to sell, very competitive within the industry.

    Cons

    Difficult to sell only because of the internal competition between the sales reps which makes it difficult to get a hold of accounts.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be more concerned about the external competition of the company, not the internal competition between their fellow teammates. Creating smaller territories/splitting accounts could help the internal competition problem.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Cogent Communications (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The interview process is pretty standard. There were 2 interviews: one with a recruiter and one with the sales manager and sales director. The interviews didn't last too long, maybe 30 minutes each. The whole interview process was pretty quick. I got the job offer about 2 weeks after the initial meeting with the internal recruiter.
