I worked at Cox Media Group

Pros

- We got to create our own internship experience.
- Great open door exposure to senior management.
- Created lead lists and made cold calls to set up future meetings with the Sales Reps.
- Was given a lot of responsibility if I just asked for it.
- I worked on many diverse projects (digital media, targeting, lead generation, online research, marketing initiatives, processing newspaper ads, etc).
- Had informational 30+ minutes one-on-one meetings with each manager in the Sales Department .
- Had opportunities to learn firsthand & explore various career paths by shadowing employees in multiple departments in the company (Editorial Staff, Marketing Dept., B2C Sales Reps, & the B2B Sales Reps)

Cons

- At times there was not enough to do in order to contribute and stay busy.
- The intern manager was often traveling for work, so it was difficult to have certain questions answered.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Would have liked the opportunity to apply the knowledge learned about the company in role plays or by presenting it to other interns.
- Have the interns make more cold calls to set x number of meetings per week for the Sales Reps.
- Just ask for what you want the internship to be like.
- It was a great experience and I learned a lot! Continue to offer internships with your company.

    Pros

    Good working environment. People at the company valued the opinions of interns just like another employee. Overal, it was a good choice to work.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't that great. Too many bosses to report to. Company seemed disorganized at times with their agendas. Not too bad though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should have more of an inclusive management style that has an open door policy. Sometimes I had no clue what a going on in the firm.
