    I worked at Cox Communications

    Pros

    Work life balance is a huge plus here. The company believes and supports initiatives that allow for work life balance. And, the corporate headquarters offer a lot of development, so there is lots of leadership training. They have quality trainers and corporate really does care about people's development and growth.

    Cons

    Sine the merging of two offices to make Team Virginia, Cox Virginia has suffered. The culture has stepped back 10 years to command and control as well as management by fear from senior leadership. In a place where people were encouraged to speak up, people will now get fired for going against the grain of senior leadership. The General Manager chastises managers and supervisors in public and is not open to feedback that doesn't match his beliefs. Sadly, he's very good at managing up and playing politics. This results in the vice presidents who report to him doign the same thing - managing up and playing politics. Information is not shared past the director level (if that far down).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a page out of the previous GM's book: communicate; treat people as equals; ask for people to challenge ideas and be innovative - then reward them when they do. Walk your talk. Go through some of the classes again and actually do the things that you are asking other to do.
