Multi Media Account Executive (Former Employee) – Ashburn – October 19, 2015
Work life balance was good. Commissions are good. Got to make my own schedule most of the time as long as I met or exceeded sales quota's. Great training. The only thing that was tuff is that the print business is a lot harder to sell than before, It is nice that they offer the online marketing with the print. Its a grind to always get new sales and try to keep customers from quitting because they are not getting the results they feel they should be getting.
Work Life Balance, Make your own scedule, dont have to be stuck in an office all day
Angry Customers not getting good results, Base salary is lower than most jobs in this area
On Air Talent (Former Employee) – Orlando, FL – November 16, 2017
Even though management regularly claims "we win with our product, we succeed with our people", people are not important to Cox. The shareholders and upper management are the only people that matter. Loyalty, talent, vision, drive, and creativity count for nothing.
Receivable Management (Current Employee) – TX – November 15, 2017
The culture here is one that depending on how you mesh with the management, depends on your entire experience. If they decide that they like you, you have a better chance of promotions/free time/ability to think independently. If they do not, you will constantly be micromanaged/critiqued and given very little assistance with anything you need help with
wonderful coworkers, nice location
work life balance is off/favoritism/unclear management
With the Media Business moving so fast pace keeping up can be difficult. Sometimes Cox was behind the times, unfortunately. The culture in Austin Texas is great. The culture in Atlanta is more cut-throat.
Board Operator / Producer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 30, 2017
The best thing about CMG is the PEOPLE! It is an amazing work environment with the ability to grow and learn many different roles. I learned everything there is to know about operations and how to be a Producer. The management for the most part are good people, they do have the downside of promoting some managers based off of time spent with the company, and not actual ability to manage employees.
Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 22, 2017
Cox Media Group is a great place to work. It is family owned and they are committed to fostering a positive work environment. Sometimes difficult to transition into new opportunities but they consistently higher strong employees and managers.
Great benefits package, 401K match, well respected company
Senior Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 1, 2017
Cox is a great company to be a part of. They provide an atmosphere to learn and contribute but at the same time push to employees to be innovative and creative to achieve company goals and solve problems. There are great benefits and a stimulating culture. The media industry is an industry in transition so job stability has been shaken which has been an hindrance to moarale. Nevertheless the the company and its employees continue to strive to achieve company goals.
SALES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Saint Petersburg, FL – August 24, 2017
You never know what may happen on any given day. You may see unusual people in the hall. Puppys running down the hall, or hear a sound check for a band you have never heard of, but find that you like their music. The normal day to day is pretty standard. Come in, do what is required and leave. But sometimes it gets crazy. That is what make the atmosphere wonderful.
demanding when called to fix printing press that needs to print the papers due on a dead line
Electrical System Engineer (Former Employee) – Franklin, OH – August 5, 2017
I have only been with this company for a short period and would still be with them but they choose to close the print facility and move it to another location out of state. The opportunities to learn how to fix a range of different equipment was challenging mind set. Management let us control our operation but had a not so good information relay to the night shift guys. The most enjoyable was all the different talent of skills sets my co workers had.
