I worked at Cox Communications as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

-Great Talent
-Good facilites
-Strong knowledge in the markets

Cons

-Corporate funds things in a weird way. I watched a contractor get pushed out by 2 lower level engineers after he had spent 18 months building the system. All of this was under a brand new 1st time manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Only hire seasoned managers of groups. I've watched a group struggle now that a teams greatest asset walked out the door.

    I worked at Cox Communications full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive pay
    Excellent benefits
    Comfortable work environment
    Reasonable expectations of employees
    Traditional and alternative shifts (i.e. 4 x 10 hour days)
    Positions generally posted for internal candidates first

    Cons

    Can be difficult to be promoted
    Pay scale rises quickly, then tops out with nowhere else to go
    College degree required for many (if not most) positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your long-time employees and give them opportunities to advance and make additional contributions to the company, regardless of degree status. Be sure to stay ahead of changing times and technology. What will you do when everyone streams their content and cable TV is a distant memory?
