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

    Pros

    The atmosphere is very collaborative and supportive. You work with talented people. Not like a conventional IT consulting firm. One gets the opportunity to be a part of an enterprise-wide strategy and all employees have full freedom to bounce ideas around- which are taken very seriously by the management.

    Cons

    In terms of the pay, work environment and company values, there are absolutely no downsides of working at Cogent that come to mind.

    One thing though- there are too many meetings for internal employees.

    Advice to Management

    It is a pleasure to work at Cogent. Appreciate the support, encouragement and advice. Keep up the great work.

    I have been working at Cogent Infotech Corp (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cogent puts a high value on long term engagements with clients, and they strive to match employees with clients based on skill and technical expertise.

    Management team is very approachable and professional. They also have a technical team one can approach for technical advice on work-related problems. They have a very responsive HR and Immigration team that are quick to respond to any employee concern. They are also open to discuss more training and certification if you are interested.

    Pay is generous, as well as the raises/bonuses, which are also consistent. You also get a lot of vacation time, which they also pretty much approve when everything's okay with the client.

    What else can I say? In a consulting environment, they try hard not to get you bogged down with admin stuff.

    Cons

    I got nothing to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
