    I worked at Cogent Communications full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of support and good new hire training. They really encourage you to lean on your manager which was helpful for me given I was new to the industry. Overall, really good sales training even for more seasoned professionals it can be helpful. Very sales driven. Meaning they understand sales bring in the money and everything is in place to make it happen.

    Cons

    Tends to lean toward micromanaging, however I think it's understandable why. But there is a huge turn-over. It's not an easy gig and its prettt cut-throat. Sales staff pass leads to buddies. I think bc of the high turn-over its very "cliquey"..you tend to buddy with people you go through training with. Not a bad thing bc I am still friends with people from all over the country who I met at Cogent. But, basically by the end of the first year if you haven't hit your stride, you're out. So, those who stay make a lot of money and are given extra "considerations". Because the compensation plan is a good one, it's hyper-competitive...sneaky under-handed stuff from people who work in the next cube and smile to your face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge the reality of the dog eat dog culture during training. And especially how sales team members can help one another instead of killing each other for a lead. A pack of sharks is not a positive working environment when they are eating one another.
