    I have been working at Cox Enterprises full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of great benefits and perks - particularly if you work at the Atlanta campus where there is a gym, cafeteria and other nice amenities. Fun atmosphere, lots of employee engagement events like spring socials (where Zak Brown played last year) and the company is big into providing community volunteerism opportunities.

    Cons

    Almost impossible to leave! The salary is very competitive for the region and the opportunities internally are nearly endless since you can transfer between divisions.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cox Enterprises (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Met various other associates in the department and was asked questions concerning my previous work experience. Took a critical reasoning test and had a group test that included other candidates to solve a hypothetical situation.
