I worked at Cox Media Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great resources through headquarters and the sharing of "best practices" among the TV stations, cable stations and other media properties.

Cons

Charlotte NC management team complacent / enjoys solid news and programming ratings so doesn't feel the need to innovate within the news room OR the sales tower.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider making a GM or DOS change to energize the station and re-instill a "fire in the belly" of the team working there.

    I worked at Cox Media Group full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company history and started in Dayton.

    Cons

    Costly Insurance, Low Pay, Huge Downsizing, Play Favorites, Products have become irrelevant for clients (both readers and advertisers). Newspaper readership declined by 35% the last 10 years...revenue had similar decline. Hanging on by a string...recently out sources creative to India. Cares about staying a float regardless of who they have to fire. Company future is very uncertain. Directors and up are way out of touch of what changes need to be made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit. The boat isn't going to stop sinking.

    Former Employee - Multimedia New Business Manager in Austin, TX

    I worked at Cox Media Group full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Cox has a long standing reputation for taking care of it's many nationwide employees by providing continuous motivational training sessions and corporate support

    Cons

    The downside was the point at which I joined the team as the Austin American Statesman has been in the middle of a rebuilding phase, testing various programs to help contribute to achieve their $66.9M budget for 2012

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current management structure was hired to replace the age old team that, according to those who were let go, was a wonderfully supportive and caring team. The replacements came from outside Austin and did not bring an open attitude to what the locals had to offer and only had an eye on the budget and not the employee.
