    Former Employee - Solutions Specialist in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

    I worked at Cox Communications full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company has very good benefits and a generally good management. They provide a pleasent working environment and some nice perks, like free cable and low cost phone and internet.

    Cons

    The company is raising prices and losing customers. They have unreasonably high sales quotas so the sales reps are under constant pressure. They brought in a 'hatchet man' laid off a lot of great people in 2009 in order to hire more 'sharks.'

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to offer affordable services to customers and quit trying to trick people into paying more. Value your employees the way you used to.
