We are thrilled to share that Cogo Labs has been named as one of Boston Business Journal's 2019 Best Places to Work!
This honor is one we are deeply proud of because the results are based on surveys from our very own employees. When asked why we think Cogo Labs is one of the best places to work, everyone always has the same answer – the team. Whether it’s cheering on colleagues as they run the Boston Marathon or helping each other learn a new skill during a 24-hour hackathon, Cogopals are always there for each other.
We have amazing perks and benefits, like catered lunch on Fridays and craft beer and cold brew on tap, but being a great place to work goes deeper than that. We support our employees personally and professionally. We foster communities of encouragement and service through our employee resource groups Cogo Womxn, for those who identify as a woman or female, and Cogo Spectra, for employees who identify as LGBT+ and allies, respectively. These groups discuss social and professional issues, give back to our community, and also have a lot of fun together.
We cultivate a culture of curiosity and always seek out new opportunities to learn and improve. All employees are welcome to participate in CogoVersity programs which range from short sessions on topics like how to read a financial statement to our multi-day new manager training to help our leaders become effective and empathetic coaches. Whatever tools, training, or information someone needs to grow in their career can be found here at Cogo.
We also love spending time with each other. We hit the slopes together on our annual ski trip and set sail on Cogo Cruise every summer, enjoying the sunshine and some live band karaoke. We love a friendly competition in everything from bingo to mini-golf to axe throwing. Whether it’s a special occasion or a random Tuesday, you can usually find a group of us celebrating something together!
