Pros

Privately held so decisions are more strategic, than driven by quarterly Wall Street expectations.
Investment in employees - training, development, compensation plans.
They take care of employees in good times and in bad.
Good benefit - 401(K) with match and fully company paid pension!!

Cons

Growing plans as competition increases and we look to determine best way to navigate through change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember - you have very talented people in the field - not all the ideas need to come from corporate. Collaboration is critical!

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

    Pros

    You will be working on cutting edge equipment on a daily basis. There is room for advancement, and the vacation benefits (Around five weeks your first year) are fantastic. Upper managment in my department is amazing and responive, and they genuinely care about your well being.

    Cons

    Like any other corporation the inner office politics can be a bit excessive. Also there appears to be a negative attitude with a lot of employees that has simply been accepted as status-quo by leadership. Also there is too much work thrown on an insufficient amount of staff resulting in stress and overtime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide the necessary tools (Including staff) to employees. Learn how to properly coach employees instead of knee-jerk reactions.
