    I worked at Cogent Infotech Corp (More than a year)

    Pros

    Typical ICC company, easier to get an offer as long as you are an STEM student.
    Management team is nice, will sponsor your working Visa; and they will try to help you if you are an valued person for them.

    Cons

    All you can think about the bad things of ICC, they do the same here.
    (Fake your resume, sell you as an senior Eng guy even you are a fresh graduated student just out of college...)

    I worked at Cogent Infotech Corp full-time

    Pros

    Thomas, the main HR director at Cogent provided me with some very good wisdom about work and how to conduct oneself. Even though I was not the best employee at this company, the talks I've had with him and the enormous room I've been provided for growth was largely responsible for me stepping up in my career and gaining a deeper understanding of Programming.
    The training room and the company itself is adequately equipped.
    I hope the people who choose this company do gain the same or even more.

    Cons

    Nothing major to say at this time.

    Pros

    Cogent greatly improved my skills through training, provided me with great opportunities to work on projects I would not have had without Cogent, helped me with unfamiliar technologies at client site through mentoring by senior Cogent developers, enabling me to succeed on difficult projects, and in my career as a software engineer. I would not have the great opportunity I have today without Cogent, and Cogent continues to support me professionally and in help with Green Card. Many thanks to Cogent!

    Cons

    Some people said it took them longer time in placing to project, but notice that the people who spent the most time studying and preparing took the shortest time placing on project. There is no magic. You have to put in the effort.

    Advice to Management

    What is best way to refer a friend who need a job in IT?

    I worked at Cogent Infotech Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing, they just give free accommodation but the contract you would sign would be a problem to be with them

    Cons

    Everything, first salary after 2 months job
    Big lairs
    If you want to leave them, they will threat you
    No clients except Deloitte that also comes with bad reputation
    Fake resumes type associates

    Advice to Management

    Please pay people on time, don't take advantage of situation
