    I worked at Cox Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The Culture at Cox is great. Work Life balance is given importance. This is definitely a company that is looking to adapt with changing times and is forward looking. Management values your opinion.

    Cons

    Sometimes, I feel that change does not happen quick enough. This could also be because of the size of the organization and the maturity of the industry. Not the easiest industry to disrupt.

    Advice to Management

    Keep valuing your employees and have a pulse on the energy in the company. The general spirit in the company is very positive and I hope it stays that way.

    I worked at Cox Communications part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work at. Learned a lot. It was my first job. I had a great manager and I learned a lot from him. It was a difficult decision to leave the colleagues.

    Cons

    Nothing much to say. Keep doing what you are doing. Things will go well. It can be fast paced and if you are not suited for that, better you find another job!

    Advice to Management

    Allow work from home options. When in doubt, listen to your employees! Rate of salary growth is not that great. You should offer more raise to make sure your good employees stay with you.

    I worked at Cox Communications full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits are aligned with regional standards and practices.

    Cons

    Territorial leaders with less regard for effective management and misplaced value on how they are perceived by senior leadership. The result is analysis paralysis an a parasitic work environment where back stabbing is prevalent and trust is non-existent.

    Advice to Management

    Retire already... your continued self-promotion and favoritism is holding Cox back from achieving it's business goals.

    I worked at Cox Communications as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting work for the positions I had. High pay for contractors

    Cons

    Lots of contractors and I was one. They paid well. But they treated contractors like 2nd class employees. Could not participate in certain meetings, events, etc.

    Advice to Management

    The bulk up with a lot of contractors when times are good. They let the contractors go when times are bad. Management should do a better job forecasting

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

    Pros

    Positive culture always working for the best solution for the customer and operations personnel. Great campus with excellent facilities.

    Cons

    Tends to be a fluctuating employment market

    Advice to Management

    Need to better vet the projects that are funded for development and then fully support them from upper management until they are completed. There is a tendency to cut funding to in-flight projects, wasting significant development funds.

    I have been working at Cox Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive pay. There are opportunities for advancement if you are willing to work hard, and are willing to re-locate for the right opportunity.

    Cons

    You do more or less have to move to Corp HQ (Atlanta) for good opportunities for advancement. I still don't feel that Cox is really pushing the technology envelope and is just more or less following in the steps of the other big Communication companies.
