Cox Is one of the best companies to work for! Great mix of holdings and it is a well run organization.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Cox Enterprises full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCox 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lose the great work life balance culture. It has diminished recently.

Fantastic work experience!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Cox Enterprises full-time for more than 5 years

ProsNo 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.

ConsDepending 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 Senior ManagementGrow your people and promote from within.

My experience with Cox has been good. This is a very good company with a strong culture of customer satisfaction.

Sales Manager (Current Employee)

ProsGood company to work for with a strong culture in customer satisfaction. Strong product and pricing advantage. Management is generally good to work for. Not a lot of pressure.

ConsStill learning how to compete. Slow to bring new product out. Conservative sometimes to a fault.

Advice to Senior ManagementBring more hires from outside the company with experience in product introductions, marketing etc. Hire from companies other than other carriers or wireless companies.
