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

    Pros

    I had got placed on good projects. I learned valuable skills that proved to be very useful in my current project as well. I learned various new technologies and implement those in the projects. Every challenges and obstacles in projects were building block for my career. I always get a good support and guidance in the time of need from cogent team. During my employment period, I remember that I was always able to directly connect and share my problems with cogent team no matter of their busy schedule. Cogent also provided good employment benefits.

    Cons

    Cogent might need to adapt with market dynamics and rapid changing technologies. It will be more better if Cogent get feedback from each and every employee time and again.
