    I have been working at Cox Automotive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Culture. Great benefits. They treat you like human beings. They keep you informed of everything you need to know. I want to do more with for my job and work harder because I know they care about me. I would recommend working for Cox to anyone looking for a job.

    Cons

    drive into Atlanta. Nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and keep treating your employees the way you have been. Your work environment makes most people want to do their jobs well and give you their best and take care of our clients. You keep doing what you are doing and we will keep what we are doing.

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

    Pros

    - Amazing benefits including above average 401(k) matching, excellent health insurance, flexible PTO (as of 2019), and many more

    - Highly collaborative environment with a relatively modern tech stack for an enterprise company

    - The work is interesting

    - The culture is great, and the people are very supportive and fun to work with

    - Excellent work/life balance

    Cons

    I can only really give 2 cons. The first is that there are constant organizational changes on all levels, especially in upper management. This makes backlog priorities hard to keep up with, and work often gets shelved or lost as teams are constantly reshuffled. Re-org rollouts also do not seem very well planned, and there is often confusion about ownership of work between teams that sometimes goes unresolved. The second con is that the pay is starting to get less competitive. It’s not bad by any means, but many companies in the area are paying more.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down on the organizational changes, and make sure they are well planned before implementing them.

    I worked at Cox Automotive full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cox Automotive is a great company, in general. Used to have a pension and retiree healthcare, but the enhanced 401K match helps to make up for it.

    Cons

    Still struggles to integrate businesses/brands across the organization into a unified company. Time will tell if they will transition successfully to mobility, given industry disruption to electric/autonomous vehicles.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in digital retailing to soften the transition from software to services...

    Pros

    Very impressive new hire orientation - provided company background, automotive industry overview, and all the go-to resources you need. Also, laptop was fully set up and everything worked flawlessly on Day 1. The best on-boarding I have ever experienced.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to report at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work for your new hires. That first impression makes a difference and sets a great foundation.
