    do not appreciate their employees

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Cox Enterprises

    Pros

    Nothing really positive to say about them. they don't really care about their employees well-being and their policies towards employees is constantly being made more and more difficult for anyone to feel at home and comfortable working there.

    Cons

    Constantly changing the way they operate and never for the better. Upper Management who are making the changes do not really understand all the positions that are there and will not listen to the employees who actually do the different jobs so as to understand what employees concerns are and therefor make good decisions and changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees who actually do the jobs really consider their suggestions before you make decisions and policy changes...they really are your company's bread and butter.

    I worked at Cox Enterprises full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good people, with good telework policy and opportunity for advancement if you go the extra mile with your work. The facilitates include a well stocked cafeteria, and a nicely sized gym. Moreover, the employee benefits are 2nd to none.

    Cons

    The work can be monotonous, and if you are the type that likes be involved in different areas, then you may find yourself getting bored (as I did).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote from within and to work toward employee work \ life balance.

    Pros

    Cox has the best benefits of any company I have ever worked with, and the cost is extremely low as compared to other companies. Great work/life balance. The family is very supportive of its employees.

    Cons

    Upper management can be hesitant in taking risks, and is satisfied with the status quo. It can be difficult to move ahead due to entrenched leadership in some areas of the company.

    I have been working at Cox Enterprises

    Pros

    The company is financially solid and really cares about the emoloyees. Leadership doesn't just say they care -they prove it with action. The employees are like family. The facilities are top notch. Base salaries are competitive, but not the highest; however, the bonus plans are very generous. The insurance plans are amazing and the company offers 401k matching AND a well funded pension plan...which is unheard of these days!

    Cons

    There can be downsides to any company, but I can't think of any that are worth mentioning.

    Pros

    Really put their money where their mouth is when it comes to employees. From the Employee Relief Fund to keeping benefits and wellness at the front... it's nice to see a company that cares.

    Cons

    When HR doesn't understand what a position is even if it's defined, it is very difficult to get them to pull compensation to match the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going in a positive direction and really listentin to the employees. It's working.
