    Pros

    Focus on success, training and teamwork. Fun environment.

    Cons

    Pressure to sell what is NEW...but not too bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a little more! Perhaps a base + commission program.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Compensation and benefits are very fair for my job description, I don't have to worry about my bank account or healthcare which allows me to focus on trying to do the best work I am capable of. My colleagues are true professionals which, again, fosters an environment of great work. I feel like I have the resources and tools I need to perform my task well and to take it to the next level. This company is very supportive of training programs for professional development. Many companies I have worked for give lip service to their employees being their number one resource, Cox Media Group proves it.

    Cons

    Video production is always deadline driven, this is no exception. It is a very fast paced environment so burnout does happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The division that I work for is very well managed. We have a positive leader who doesn't lead through fear, what a difference this makes!

    Very good experience as a consultant on several projects over last several years.

    I have been working at Cox Media Group as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Smart managers, open to new ideas. High quality of communication. Good cooperation from every employee involved in the research, exercise or training program. Company clearly sets high standards for professionalism from everyone. Have kept in touch with several for networking and mentoring; and happy to do so.

    Cons

    60-90 days turnaround time on payment. So high up-front investment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was impressed to hear - and see - commitment to development of staff and their career opportunities. Also, this company is giving more than lip service to work-life balance.

    Pros

    The company invests in the tools the sales people need to win! They do a lot of hiring from within which is always a plus if you want advancement. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Nothing stands out as something that can't be expected with working with a growing company. Lots of changes, but all for growth opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to fight for your sales reps.

    Pros

    Pension plan is the best benefit they have. They have a fully funded pension plan you don't have to pay into. You get vested after five years of employment. Medical and dental coverage reasonable and good. If an employee has a problem such as an unforseen medical condition or life event the company actually helps out emotionally and financially.

    Cons

    Management needs to listen more to employeees and get rid of the politics of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much, just listen to employees and get rid of employees who are taking up space and not doing their job.

    Pros

    Family like enviornment - positive culture
    Training opportunities
    Collaborative growth & training across different platforms
    Great benefits
    Strong leadership
    Media is fun and fast paced

    Cons

    I don't have anything bad to say about this company. Its unfortunate that some didn't see growth opportunities in their places. I found that if you are willing to work hard and put in some time, learn the business and are somewhat ambitious, the opportunities are there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I love the culture and I think the company is moving in the right direction.

    I worked at Cox Media Group part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Amazing people, fantastic atmosphere, really awesome perks, and free green room concerts!

    Cons

    The pace is beyond hectic, and sometimes things get missed - it can take a while to hear back from management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to follow up on communication. It can be discouraging to be told how important you are to the team, and then be ignored when you send an email repeatedly.

    I worked at Cox Media Group

    Pros

    Great benefits with a small, personal touch. It has the best combination of a large company with a small business atmosphere.

    Cons

    The company is not big enough to absorb too many risks. It is hard to cut failed programs, but that is a downfall of taking risks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. The plan works even though it has growing pains.
