ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan)

EMPLOYEES are what makes Cogent great, employee owners are what make us excel. We believe everyone desires to be successful and deserves a stake in the outcome, thus Cogent provides an ESOP, an opportunity to own a piece of the pie.

We believe in the spirit of ownership because every single one of us is an OWNER and we take results personally. We lead by personal example and we always do what we say we will do. We use common sense and simplicity to constantly pursue perfection. By staying competitive and not taking shortcuts, we can give our customers our very best and always in a responsible way.


Workplace safety is very important for each and every employee in the industry because all employees desire to work in a safe and protected atmosphere. We strive to create the kind of productive, efficient, happy and inspiring workplace we all want to be part of.  We also look for individuals with an uncompromising commitment to integrity and safety to join our team.


Competitive benefits are just a plus working at Cogent. Not only do we offer traditional benefits like medical, dental, 401(k), etc. we go a step above and provide profit sharing, casual dress and a broad array of fun and rewarding activities.
