Great place, Great people, didn't like the industry
Manager, Software Development (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 12, 2018
Wonderful and intelligent people to work with, great management and leadership, however I just never liked the media industry due to it's constant focus on advertising revenue (I know that's what drive it but still wasn't loving it).

Current situation is very turbulent and in flux.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAAugust 2, 2018
Cox as a company as a whole is wonderful. However, Cox Media Group is in flux. I have a deep feeling it will no longer exist in a couple of years. They have recently announced selling their television stations, as well as have closed many of their smaller start-up ventures. Many indications show that Cox will be stepping away from their media industry involvement. This uncertainty of the future of CMG has made morale low and many employees fearful. It is a shame because CMG ran their media businesses as family. It will be a sad day if this truly does happen.
Pros
Great benefits; 401k match; excellent training
Cons
Current atmosphere is rocky and uncertain.

I wish the management would take EVERY employee as seriously as the next. Unfortunately that isn't always the case. However, I do enjoy what I do and look forward to coming to work every day.

Add sales competitive job Cox communications made it worse
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVJuly 8, 2018
Ad sales is a competitive job. Cox communications made it increasingly harder daily by micromanaging, cutting commissions, to many meetings not enough time left for sales. Most of the people who were managers at this company were unable to sell that’s why they became managers
Pros
Free cable and good benefits
Cons
Micromanaging, regular commission cutting

Not a very good fit for someone with a lot of experience
News anchor, afternoon news host (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLJuly 2, 2018
Management is shady at best. Too much work and stress for the little pay. Was promised a lot to get me there. In the end, not so much. I would recommend this job to anyone in their 20s and 30s who doesn't expect much except experience to move on
Pros
benefits
Cons
pay, pleasant work environment

Cox is an incredible company with excellent benefits and Cox hires the best people in the business. The culture at Cox is very positive, employee focused and the training is second to none.

Entire industry was "maimed" by the recession and bowing to a "com-pU-tah."

Office Managet (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNMarch 28, 2018
When Cox took over other companies, they knew nothing about the auto industry. Nothing. Wasted conference calls, webinars that did nothing but take up valuable time.
