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

Pros

Cox had a competitive salary and excellent benefits - especially the 401K and pension plans. They also do twice yearly reviews.

Cons

They are very "corporatey" in that they focus a lot on process and procedures, which are necessarily applicable in every situation.

    I have been working at Cox Communications full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice HQ features and location.

    Cons

    Too many former ATT employees creeping in to the company creating a cultural shift. From what used to a laid back friendly environment the company is becoming an oppressive institution with countless pointless meetings, red tape and office politics of all sorts.
    Just watch the "Office Space" one more time to get an idea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Abolish the dress code. Stop micromanaging and regulating everything. Give people freedom to be creative.

    Pros

    HOURLY co workers are supportive,as we are all in the same sinking boat, bailing with a strainer!

    Cons

    There truly are no words that accurately describe the blatant and rampant culture of lies from "Supervisors" and "Management". Hourly employees are intimidated on a daily basis. Raise structure is a joke.Bonuses that used to go to the actual revenue GENERATING employees(The HOURLY employees) have been spent rather on "team building exercises" for Supervisors and Management. Some to include trips to Vegas, white water rafter, paintball excursions, and 10K bonuses paid out to Sups and Mgrs. No allowances are made for actual human issues or problems; If it doesn't fit in the M&Ps...it doesn't exist Absolutely no opportunity for any type of advancement regardless of qualifications.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try respecting your employees, Your "yes" men and women Supervisors and Managers are unable to consistently tell the same tales to the same audience. Hourly employees are the actual backbone here. If you state you have an open door policy,let us have some transparency as well. TELL THE TRUTH.
