    Pros

    Competatve Pay
    Great Facilities
    Ability to adapt their business for the future

    Cons

    Politics prevents management from making the best decisions
    While I agree the company provides options for work life balance, 80 hour work week is the norm for some corporate depts
    No real growth opportunities
    Being at corporate can be a disadvantage because there is no outlet when you have an issue because of politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sensible decisions that can be successful in the long run instead of quick victories. Make sure corporate adheres to the values of the company founder

    Pros

    Cox has great people, a great work life balance, and benefits. It is a very professional work environment. There is a good mix of diversity and an atmosphere of teamwork. They also have excellent facilities at the corporate campus and a convenient location at the perimeter.

    Cons

    Low turnover means less opportunity to advance, the culture seems to be changing to one less tolerant to work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lose the great work life balance culture. It has diminished recently.

    Pros

    No micro-managing. Encourage creativity and innovation. A wonderful campus with amenities such as 2 cafes and 2 gyms. They stay on top of cutting edge technology. You'll always have a speedy laptop and any any other tools needed to complete your work. Great benefits with a fully funded pension plan and retiree healthcare package. Competitive pay. Great people and relaxed environment. A place where you actually want to come and work.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, upward growth becomes a challenge. This may not be the case in every department but I've seen mid level positions recruited from outside when fully competent, knowledgable and capable people already exist within the department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow your people and promote from within.

    Great people, private company

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    Family oriented, private company that is very fair to employees and has a very nice set of traditional benefits. Very open access to different levels of management and opportunities to know about different activities across the company. Not a cut-throat culture - more helpful and friendly.

    Cons

    Adoption of newer work-life benefits has been a bit slow as the company evolves for the 21st century workforce. Career options within parent organization can be somewhat limited, but opportunities with divisions are plentiful. Friendliness of employees sometimes masks real progress on issues - people tend not to disagree and debate a lot in meetings, but have side conversations and small meetings to iron out major decisions.
