The management here is all over the place with everyone. The group leads are one of the most helpful people while the managers are not useful whatsoever. Unfair workload per person and 12 hour days can be stressful.

This place is pure toxic and an immature environment, literally backstabbing, low lives at every corner. The ppl that are in high positions ascertained their positions due to only their lifer worth, not capabilities and intelligence.
Pros
Meh
Cons
I couldnt list the oceans of disfunction.

Work duties fairly simple and understanding. Unfortunately was put into an unfounded position of being accused of sleeping or dating a member of management from another member if management. Complete unsubstantiated gossip that forced me out of place of work that was paying my bills and literally the food on my children's table, I am the only provider for my 2 kids and not once was that even cared or considered in this toxic and patheticwork environment. Absolute scumbags at cogent power.(not using caps on the company spelling is completely intentional due to a lack of respect for cogent)

Worked here for 4 months. Moving up is virtually impossible as I experienced coworkers who have been there 2 years. And still make temporary wages. The environment is 40 degrees plus and they do not expect you to slow down. It is impossible to move up in a place that only brings you down. The management is terrible, safety advisor does not even know how to advise the proper use of a machine. If you have question, you are probably better off figuring it out on your own. Ask and you will just be looked at as inferior. Would not recommend my worst enemy to work here, let alone a friend.
Pros
Barely even a lunch room, useless management
Cons
12 hour shifts, no heat breaks, no understanding

Worst company to work for in the burlington region. They dont care about employees and have no problem firing anybody at the slightest infraction. Low wages and long work days make for a miserable working experience. The other employees look down on you and treat you like dirt and management is worse. Little to no care for the safety of there employees injuries happend every shift i worked.

This place is not for everyone. They run a twelve hour shift schedule, working seven of every fourteen days, with few shutdowns. Management seem rushed to do tasks. This is great for self-starters, but if you need your hand held, you may wish to look elsewhere

Management is pathetic. Their only concern is how much goes out the door. Only suck ups are promoted. All female HR hire and protect women no matter their skills or attitude. Loyal hard workers are leaned on to pick up the slack. Employee turnover is astounding. Temps are treated poorly.
Pros
None
Cons
Terrible management

Place is ok without some arrogancy and more skill. Workplace culture is ok. Management is confused. I expect more oganisationl and discipline and productive equalisation on all benefits.
Pros
Heat breaks and cold drinks.

Management is awful, they just hire their friends with zero schooling or certificates to fill out their important roles. Ie. Flow leader. 2/3 supervisors have no idea what they are doing. They have hired people back who have stolen from the company on multiple occasions, not just back either, they gave that person a team leader position. They don’t treat new employees that well at all. It’s a situation where it’s constantly rush rush rush because that’s what they want and they’re never actually thankful for anything their employees do, they just expect more. This would be a very good company to work for if they changed out about 75% of the management/office.
Pros
Free Gatorade
Cons
Worst people

If you are new you will be treated like you are dumb and inferior. The guys that have been there forever act like prima donnas even though they just slit steel,form cores or drive forklifts. 12 hour shifts makes for a miserable time especially since co workers are so unpleasant. Avoid.

Cogent Power Inc was good to work for and safety minded.The place was productive and they make transformers weight for a 8TH of and pound to 40,000 pounds.But the last few years follow workers began to I would say rat other works out over little things thinking the would mover up faster in the company ! That to me the is not the right way to move up in any company! You move up by working hard ,on time ,communications and be able to solve problems!!!
Pros
heat breaks in sever hot weather conditions
Cons
none
