    I have been working at Cofomo full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    location.....maybe even there. Office looks outdated

    Cons

    Here's what to expect when you start at Cofomo. The turn over is mind buggling. Half of your coworkers are depressed , the other half is looking for a job. Managers are manipulative, deceptive and lack courage. You will be lied to and manipulated at all times and everything you say is used against you. You pay will be cut with no warning. The vision is ever changing, almost by the day. Consultants are lied to about rates and salaries to which we can aspire. IT'S ALL ABOUT MONEY. EMPLOYEES ARE INTERCHANGEABLE. I'm currently looking for a job as well as almost all my coworkers in my team.

    Pros

    I can't think of any, very mediocre overall Your coworkers are nice people I guess?

    Cons

    1 - They promise you a position but change their minds and call it a "misunderstanding" 2 - They don't have the slightest care about your health and well being 3 - No matter what situation you have, they do not cooperate nor do they compromise 4 - Your voice is unheard and all your complaints and demands are meaningless 5 - They make you do things you didn't sign up for and expect you to like it 6 - Terrible payment plan and overly complicated hour punching 7 - You expect to find the fruits of your efforts when you bank hours but you barely see half of what you accumulate 8 - Their support team is barely helpful and beat around the bushes when you ask them questions 9 - No growth, they tend to trap you in the same position and take advantage of your talent 10 - Forget about asking for a raise or anything of that sort, they make you wait a very long time and in the end it is only around 2% NOT WORTH IT 11 - Shifts are beyond your control, they change it as they like and you get no say in it 12 - unorganized management who only cares about their pockets and nothing more 13 - Pretty much slavery overall, unrecommendable
