    I worked at Cox Enterprises full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, stable company.

    Cons

    A lot of middle management staff are long-term employees (12-15 years or service). Their decision making is often based on self-preservation more than doing the right thing.

    Advice to Management

    Move management staff into/out of positions such that no one person or department stops entertaining new ideas and evolving. Move some management resources around across divisions (CCI, CMG, CAI, and CEI)
