How are senior leaders perceived at Cognetik?

Pros

They buy everyone lunch everyday Compensation

Cons

The owners are smart guys but they are analysts with very little business sense. They switch people around in roles without having a prior conversation and then expect the person to take on new huge responsibilities, while still being held accountable for the original role. The "flexible" hours benefit is that you can work from home, but you'll find yourself putting in 12 hour days due to a large part of the company operating out of Romania. The CEO is a micromanager and there is a ton of turnover.

Advice to Management

You hire very smart people, try to keep them. And stop firing people for no reason and without warning.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Cognetik?

Pros

To name but the obvious ones: - great people who love what they are doing - lots of room to grow and improve - the leadership team genuinely cares about the employees - interesting projects - organic, sustainable growth mindset

Cons

There is a certain lack of structure around some of the internal processes, however this is known and being worked on. It will take a bit of time, patience and lots of communication, but given the leadership team's way of thinking about this, it will most certainly be addressed (Rome wasn't built in a day). As an employee, this also means that we can contribute to shaping how Cognetik operates in the years to come.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to the people, keep working on making Cognetik better. Also, please do not forget to create avenues for the information to flow to the team. We have your back as you have ours.

How is management perceived at Cognetik?

Pros

My colleagues are exceptional. They are experts in their fields and yet they are warm, welcoming, fun, and engaging. This kind of openness is fostered by the company leadership and truly part of the culture. The benefits are exceptional, unlike anything I have ever experienced anywhere else. Just to name a few that are most important for my family: the part Cognetik pays for the insurance I chose is over 85% of the cost, gym membership subsidy, free quality lunch every day, unlimited PTO (and a caring manager that actually approves this PTO), a generous number of Company Days Off (the most important being the entire period from Christmas eve to January 2). At Cognetik we all do a lot of work with much room for creativity and a constant need to discover/learn new things. If this is not something you desire, than this becomes part of the cons list. If you like to be challenged and grow, than you would also love this environment (... you will complain like many of us about process, but will secretly love the freedom, challenge and responsibility that we experience) Bottom line, I enjoy working here and I love the people I work with.

Cons

We often have A LOT of work to do. This is not for the faint of heart. But the compensation, benefits, and company culture make me want to pay the price.

Advice to Management

Keep growing and keep your commitment to high standards.

This kind of openness is fostered by the company leadership and truly part of the culture.
