I worked at Cox Enterprises

Pros

The benefits are fantastic. Employees have a great camaraderie and engage in morale lifting activities such as softball and happy hours. The work is generally easy, if you possess some intelligence and remember basic mathematics.

Cons

There is a lot of work. Often it seemed as though there were not enough people performing the research tasks to keep up with the demands of sales and upper management. Compensation is incredibly low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Raising minimum salaries would boost morale and keep employees focused on completing the tasks they are assigned, instead of thinking, "I'm not paid enough for this."

    Pros

    Blackberry, laptop, solid benefits, new station faciltites and state of the art technology, most of the people there are friendly

    Cons

    Management without any obvious sales ability or people skills. While this can be common, it is extreme with in this case. . New Business Managers who have never sold television and can be among the least knowledgeable employees on the entire sales floor and a total liabilty on sales calls. These managers can be recognized as out of his/her element by almost the entire staff, yet clearly be in good standing with the GSM. Its almost as though New Business management is intentionally inept so upper management can see how young AEs react....a test to see what one is willing to put up with in order to see who is "on board" no matter what.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get fresh New Business management. There are too many people with careers at risk in the volatile media sales industry, and too many good leaders out there without jobs, to employ managers with so little experience and management skills.
