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

    Pros

    Almost guarantee work for the 1st 6 months, if you do your daily activities and stay out of trouble...

    Cons

    For the most part, It's repetitive work, depending on the market you are in... as a RAM, you'll do well if your immediate mgr knows what he/she's doing.

    Advice to Management

    Give promos more time to run.

    I have been working at Cogent Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With this being such a small organization we work on issues and equipment comparable positions at rival companies would never have access to. Its a great position and company to learn the ins and outs of edge networking.

    Cons

    The pace can be pretty brutal at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management overall is great. It would greatly assist workers to have a defined way to move around within the company. As it stands finding other intra-company positions can be pretty political.
