I worked at Cox Communications full-time

Pros

Good company to work for. Good corporate culture, but it is changing. Overall, Cox is good to its employees. Generous Holiday & PTO. Offers professional development training. Compensation was good, but recent annual increases were minimal (~3%).

Cons

The pay-TV industry has transitioned from a growth industry to a mature industry where competitors are competing for share. Cox went through a realignment in 2011 and 2012 to be more competitive. These changes, the realignment process, and struggles to stem net subscriber losses has damaged employee morale and the corporate culture.

    Pros

    Pension, 6% 401k match, bonus, great health insurance, outstanding vacation time, great facilities, and diversity of employees, technology, and opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    Declining culture, decreasing budgets, and efficiency driving better employees to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time hiring qualified employees, so your good employees don't have to make up the difference.

    I have been working at Cox Communications

    Pros

    This organization has one of the best "people" cultures I have ever had the pleasure to be part of. Cox "Employee Bill of Rights" is pro-employee--the best part is that it is very true. The employees work together and projects come together as needed in this very fast paced organization.

    Cons

    The recent strategy change to standardize across all regions is creating less flexibility for region-specific decision-making and is extending the amount of time that internal projects can be accomplished. The organization is slow to move on key decisions and is constantly playing "catch-up" with its competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move full speed ahead!
