    I worked at Cogent Infotech Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with them for almost 6 years and 2 projects in all. Management was very co-operative in doing my immigration and Green Card. Finally got through the process!!!
    Joined my client now. Cogent thankfully allowed me.
    One thing about cogent was they always paid on time. Had to make sure that everything was in writing. They even paid all the hourly raises that I got from the client.
    In all, had a good experience

    Cons

    Takes time to reach upper management.

    I have been working at Cogent Infotech Corp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I joined Cogent right out of school as a sales executive. In six years I have risen to Director of public sector practice. Its a great company to start a career. The upper management is very involved and supportive. I am surrounded by smart, hard working colleagues from whom I learn on a constant basis. The company provides all the sales tools, support and infrastructure that is required to succeed in the job. Very good base salary, commissions and benefits.

    Cons

    Make it happen is the mantra that is followed in the company. So pressure is there to meet targets.

    Pros

    Pros would be: Comprehensive training provided in-house, Oracle certification in java programming, quality projects available with high profile clients, very competitive salary/benefits package, visa sponsorship, and ease of access to upper level management also a plus.

    Cons

    Only con would be that with so much work taking place off-site, the main office can be a bit quiet.

    I have been working at Cogent Infotech Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been a Cold Fusion programmer for seven years now. I love cold fusion but unfortunately all work is now being done in PHP, .NET etc. They are no jobs available on cold fusion. I tried for a very long time to find a project in other latest technologies such as Java etc. but unfortunately everyone wanted project experience. I got a call from a recruiter at Cogent who told me about this cross training program where they hire programmers similar to my background and cross train them on Java. I took the plunge and went through a rigorous training program and am currently working as a Java programmer with a bank in Philadelphia. My best career move ever.

    Cons

    The training program is very demanding and majority of the attendees have some Java experience.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for this great opportunity. I will definitely recommend my other friends that are working in obsolete technologies and want to cross train to Java.

    It has really been a great time since I joined Cogent Infotech Corporation almost a year ago. I really appreciate the opportunity for taking one of the best training in U.S, the professional help to find me a wonderful job, all the hard work to get my H1-B visa approved and the heartwarming card for my birthday.

    Nothing much to complain about.

    The company is large enough to be extremely competitive yet small enough to value their clients, employees and partners.

    The company's rapid growth can leave business strategy gaps.

    Advice to Management

    Consult professional change managers though heavy growth cycles.
