I'm looking for a good French translation for suck in the context of an activity being a drag. For instance, how would you say "cold-calling sucks"?
The shorter the translation the better.

You mention that it sucks and that it's a drag as in boring/annoying, or maybe a chore. I noted it doesn't necessarily suck ass/real bad in context. It may piss the person off or not. In so many words, there are many possible choices depending on whether you focus on qualifying what cold calling is or how people react to that. A few suggestions, mostly about the latter:
...c'est une nuisance.
