was a great place to work, now a sad shell of what the company was built on

Pros

Benefits through Cox are good.
People are talented, but constrained by management
If you are in the right circle and enjoy drinking your career will go far

Cons

Very sterile enviroment.
Communicating with peers through email or IM only
No privacy during meetings - all glass meeting rooms
Very top heavy organization
In fighting amongst department heads
Departmental survey yields low rating results but issues are never addressed
Takes too long for management to make decisions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company values should also pertain to how you treat employees.

    It was an important time of growth in my life and I'm proud to have worked for such a stand up company.

    Pros

    The pay is excellent and they give you the tools you need to get the job done. The greatest hurdle to overcome in sales is generally yourself, they do pretty well on taking care of the others.

    Cons

    They had a hard time during layoffs and reorganization - everyone was lost.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to stay open to what the little man in the company is saying; they make it move.

    Pros

    AutoTrader is part of the COX family and has amazing benefits as a result. Pay is fair based on industry and geographic averages. They throw lots of parties, have plenty of prizes to give away, and are pretty flexible when it comes to work/life balance.

    Cons

    They have meetings to plan meetings and Managers attend these meetings to appear as if they are hard at work. Systems & Reporting were (when I was there) a joke. To be fair, this was probably as a result of the accelerated growth of the company.
