    I have been working at Cox Communications full-time


    I've worked on one if the markets as well as the corporate office in Atlanta and have seen the same thing in both instances. The leadership is open and accessible, the company goes out of it's way to show that employees matter and the benefits package is remarkable. There is also a lot if advancement opportunity that extend beyond Cox Communications into other companies under the Cox Enterprises umbrella.


    I think the company is a bit too eager to celebrate everything in an effort to make everyone feel comfortable.
