    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with KIRO7 and Cox Media Group for a little over a year as an Account Executive. I love the fast pace and every day is different. The work is challenging but you are rewarded generously. The people I work with are truly the best and everyone in the building is friendly and helpful. Also, it is a lot of fun to work in a news organization. In the past year, KIRO7 has been top in the ratings for the local news, so we must be doing something right! The parent company, Cox Media Group, provides extensive training and support for TV and Digital sales. We have a full range of media solutions, not just TV, so we are very competitive in the media landscape.

    Cons

    Meetings. But who doesn't complain about meetings!

    Advice to Management

    Manage to each individual salesperson's strengths.

    I worked at Cox Media Group part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cox Media Group Dayton generally has a great staff and a fun environment. I would have stayed had I not got a better offer.

    Cons

    They are mostly part-time offerings now, with no benefits and no prospectus on what the future plans will be. In short: they can't commit to you like they want you to commit for them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop saving nickels and dimes with part-time positions. This is why no one stays and you spend more money hiring new part-timers.
