Pros: Good benefits, good work/life balance, good work environment
Cons: Poor leadership, numerous layoffs/re-orgs, hard to succeed
Cox is privately owned and has generous benefits and a very nice work environment. People are generally polite (or at least have to pretend to be). People come in late, go home early and take lots of time off. Great while it lasts, but the organization is very ineffective on many levels and has had numerous layoffs and re-orgs during the last 5 years. That said, other large telecom/cable companies are just plain evil to their employees, so if you're going to work for one, Cox is about as good as it gets.
