    I have been working at Cognity full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Cognity is the company where I started 6 years ago from a junior level. There are great people here, very knowledgeable and eager to help. You get the chance to work with big company clients in the telecommunications industry, insurance, banking and more, both in Greece and abroad. The company never ceases to look for new projects, even outside the "comfort zone" of its already employed developers, continuously...

    Cons

    The workload can get high, but I believe that this is something to be expected from a company actively competing against multinationals like Accenture in order to get a project, and get it done in time. It is not for someone looking for a 9-5 position. A project may at times challenge you and there may be some overtime, but to me, it is all about making the most of any situation you encounter.

    I have been working at Cognity full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Working in Cognity for 2 years now as a consultant, I have gained experience in multiple areas of technology and improved my communication skills at the same time. There are plenty of opportunities to learn innovative Enterprise solutions and work for great organizations both in Greece and abroad. While working with cutting edge software, the company encourages developers to get in touch with clients and work on solutions...

    Cons

    Sometimes the work load is too much to handle. However, this is not a defacto practice but mostly the outcome of an extremely optimistic assessment.

    Advice to Management

    There is no shame in saying no to a client when there are not enough resources.

    I have been working at Cognity full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Many different projects help personal development. Relative good salaries, nice environment. Hard work at the end helps gain significant experience.

    Cons

    Requires hard work, often working overtime. No bonus scheme, office space is not enough.

    Advice to Management

    Since you push people to work hard due to strict project deadlines, consider offering a bonus as a reward if project is successful and in budget.

    I worked at Cognity full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Having been a part of Cognity for more than 3 years, fresh out of University, I couldn't be more satisfied with Cognity for my first professional steps. First of all, it provides a quick-paced but smooth transition from the academic to the professional environment for people who have just graduated. The easy-going work environment as well as the helpful attitude from the other team members were really nice and welcoming....

    Cons

    Overall, I can't say that there is something that bothered me during my time in Cognity. Minor issues, like supplying personal phone to some employees that are in constant communication with the clients.

    I have been working at Cognity full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    I have been working here for the past few years. The company offers an excellent working environment, cutting edge technologies and decent salaries. Management is open to suggestions (with regards to new technologies and APIs) and gives you opportunities to explore emerging applications and trends. Working hours are normal (9.30 to 18.00) and you rarely need to work overtime. There are yearly reviews with each employee...

    Cons

    You really have to nag the management in order to buy expensive software tools.

    Advice to Management

    More training to your employees.
