I worked at Cobalt as an intern (less than an year)Pros
flexible time schedule--could get to and leave from office whenever you want
helpful advice from mentors--our mentors could always help us figure out how to approach problems that we trap in
stay in team--interns work in a small team and have "stand up" everyday, both with teammates and mentorsCons
salary for interns is a little bit low.
few contact with super super manager since we could talk with our mentors everyday, but there are few chances that we could talk to super manager to see how they manage the companyAdvice to ManagementAdvice
if we could have meeting with more teams in the company to know what the real teams' job, that would be great!RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Cobalt.Interview Details
Quick process, I found out why later. A recruiter contacted me, asked a couple of questions, and made sure I understood what the pay and commute looked like. Then I had a 1:1 phone call with the hiring manager. This was more of a "this is what we do, are you interested?" chat than a true interview. I was obviously overqualified. I ended up being invited onsite and spoke to 5 different groups of people. I got asked mostly SQL questions. These folks were clearly not aware of what the other people was asking and there was lot's of repeated questions. I learned that nobody on that team had been there for more than 3 months. I turned out this position, described as a quasi Data Science position, was really a junior analyst position, focused on extracting data and creating reports. The pay was good for this type of role, but people move on as soon as something more challenging presents itself. They are pretty much continuously filling the same positions.Interview Questions
