    Pros

    Cox is an excellent company to work for - a very diverse company that believes and supports it's employees and make significant commitments in dollars and volunteer hours to the communities in which it operates. In addition to Cox Enterprises, there are three divisions - Cox Communications, Cox Automotive, and Cox Media Group. It's a private company so while the bottom line is important, they have significant flexibility to focus on the longer term results instead of just the next quarter.

    Cons

    The company is going through some major organizational change in many of it's divisions as they consolidate subsidiaries and work towards a single mindset but that's not easy with a wide mixture of acquired companies often with different cultures from Cox.

    Advice to Management

    With Cox currently over $18 million in revenue and significant growth plans, it is becoming increasingly important to centralize strategy and decision making at the enterprise level and then pushing down those strategies especially for enterprise software applications. There is significant waste of time and resources with so many different systems and processes. While operating independently in the past was a good thing as it empowered employees at the division or subsidiary level, the company is simply growing too big to keep that strategy at least for enterprise-wide major strategic decisions. Recent efforts to move to common systems for HR and Accounting are solid steps in the right direction but those efforts need to expand to other areas and accelerate.
