I have been working at Cox Communications full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Paid Vacations,Paid Sick, Paid Holidays, 401K, Company Vehicle and Paid Training.

Cons

Working as a Field Technician is very hard and stressful. Working in attics and up on poles while carrying heavy equipment Tools, Signal Meter. A days work can make your body ache for several, and job is becoming more mentally stressful as loss of subscribers do to the over saturation of competition.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please praise your techs more, last 3 years have been about what is going wrong and less focus on what techs do bring to the table and the important role they play. We hear more about how bad economy is and need to do start doing things this and that which is okay but, please deliver the message in a positive way and not a threating way to our job security.

    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.
