    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC

    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.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dayton, OH

    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.
