POOR!
Security Guard (Former Employee), Dayton, OHMarch 23, 2015
Cons: everything
Don't work there if you value your sense of self worth! 'they work you beyond the legal amount of hours per week, the management disregards people's well being, the workers are stressed to the point of falling ill. And there is nothing good to say about this company.

Pros: we are blessed with a great team that goes out of their way to support other team members.
Cons: lack of training and defined requirements. exceptions are the general rule.
CMG's DRO group is one of the best places that I have had the pleasure of working at. Management does make an effort to do interesting and special things for the team, and they do put forth an effort to make the environment as enjoyable as possible.

Cox Media Group Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Digital Account Executive (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: constant free food, learning opportunities for potential and current clients, constant education of digital and print landscape
Cons: no time flexibility, micro management, constant back and forth between appointments to office, poor time management, poor work/life balance
They offer great workshops for their clients and employees to learn what is going on in the local advertising market. As well, they put on wonderful magazine events for their Living Intown publication. – more... They have a collaborative work environment and have teams of sales people mostly made of traditional/local print reps and one digital sales rep. Cox Media Group has a host of digital vendors they work with to make up a successful digital marketing strategy for their clients. It is almost overwhelming for the sales rep and the potential client to wade through all the options. You must be good at doing in-depth client goal analysis in order to offer them the right media options.

This is a great place for someone just starting their career. If you need to be trained and need the structure of being in the office environment constantly, this is the place for you. They require a strict 8:30-5:30 work environment. Flex schedule is not an option, therefore, a lot of sitting in traffic when work could be getting done in the morning and afternoon remotely. As well, this is a VERY political work place. If you are one who likes to fly under the radar...don't expect to go very far or stay very long. They want you to be visible and putting in overtime. Many of the sales reps sit around whining about each other and asking "where is so and so" rather than moving about their day and taking care of their own business. – less

Great Co-workers Management only sees $$$$
Account Executive (Current Employee), Tulsa, OKFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: lots of free tickets to concerts, expense account, paid phone.
Cons: un-safe part of town, lots of vagrants in the area, long work day, extremely high expectations with little support, constant pressure to perform, several meetings per week that take away from the sales week
Cox bought our TV stations and dramatically improved our news ratings and look and feel of the station. The news products went from #4 to #2 in less than 2 years. Cox invested a lot of money into the news – more... sets, anchors and building maintenance. The benefits are awesome 3 weeks PTO and the best insurance coverage, dental even braces were paid to a certain amount.

Management comes from other Cox properties in the nation. Pro: They recruit from within. Con: they did not promote any of the employees who had been with the station for many years. The managers have little true "boots on the ground" selling experience and some managers were promoted to positions that they seemed to know nothing about.

Sales commission is very low at this property and bonus incentives are only paid if the team as whole meets their goals every month. – less
