Pros

Family owned and run company. They seem to care about the employees providing good benefits and pension.

The problem comes in that caring doesn't seem to carry down through they're managers at some locations.

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

    Pros

    Good money - well , before they increase your quota and then lower your commission.... for the third time in a single year.

    Cons

    Constant change. I had 4 managers and 3 VP changes is just under 2 years. Fraternity/sorority like behavior as far as getting ahead. If you are completely unqualified for an advanced position it's OK! You're hired!! - as long as you are "besties" with the person hiring for the position. VERY unprofessional conduct in meetings - directors and managers would CRY in meetings and constantly yell at the sales staff It was embarrassing to watch. NOT ONE PERSON will ever hold themselves accountable for their mistakes because they are too afraid of getting fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be professional. Be passionate. MAN UP. Take responsibility. Stop blaming others for your terrible management skills. Start noticing the employees that work hard and genuinely care for the outcome of the client. There are so many talented and hard working professionals that are really good at what they do and deserve to be promoted. I saw too many people who deserved promotions getting passed over for an employee who had far less qualifications and experience. Let the sales staff do their job - stop calling 3 to 5 last minute meetings a week to discuss how poorly they are doing when the sales staff needs to be out in the field getting the job done - how do you expect them to work when you keep them in the office listening to you complain about their numbers?? My ultimate advice - CLEAN HOUSE OF UPPER MANAGEMENT. Get rid of them. it's the only way to prevent the same cycle of sorority sister and good 'ol boy type behavior. Bring in optimistic and REALISTIC personalities who have recently worked in the field. Marketing is constantly changing and the old school mentality is not a good fit for the market.
