    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Cox Media Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, Good pay structure, skill enhancement classes/seminars

    Cons

    Too many changes going on with management at the time. I understand things are much better there now from former colleagues. It felt like an old school industry trying to be a leading digital company in Austin, but didn't produce the greatest results.

    Advice to Management

    Watch Brene Brown's the Power of Vulnerabitly Ted Talk.

    I worked at Cox Media Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cox has a long standing reputation for taking care of it's many nationwide employees by providing continuous motivational training sessions and corporate support

    Cons

    The downside was the point at which I joined the team as the Austin American Statesman has been in the middle of a rebuilding phase, testing various programs to help contribute to achieve their $66.9M budget for 2012

    Advice to Management

    The current management structure was hired to replace the age old team that, according to those who were let go, was a wonderfully supportive and caring team. The replacements came from outside Austin and did not bring an open attitude to what the locals had to offer and only had an eye on the budget and not the employee.
