    A Company That Pays Well And Has Awesome Training

    Pros

    Cox pays their employees, or should I say Salespeople very well. If you can sell you will make top dollar for this industry. They also want to make sure that their Salespeople are on top of the latest sales trends that are completely results driven. If someone comes out with a different style of selling and it's successful, Cox will spare no expense on getting their people trained. This is ongoing training that will help you in any industry! The sales contests are second to none! Trips, furniture, money, tickets to sporting or classical entertainment events. If you spend money on your clients, dining, movies, tickets, etc. Cox will reimburse you or if you let them know in advance what you need they will spot you. This may seem normal in some industries, but it's not usually the norm in radio advertising industry unless you are the Senior Account Executive/Director of Sales or Sales Manager.

    Cons

    There are a LOT of meetings. And you'd better be there or bring money back to the station when you come back! lol...They are a little strict but the way they treat their employees, I think balances it out. They do a lot for their people and they expect a lot back.

    Pros

    Great training, job, benefits, perks and people!

    Cons

    Negotiations on the corporate level had another media company take over the market's cable advertising sales - so they closed our office. I loved it and would still be there had they not left the market.
