      Pros

      Good people and a fun environment.

      Sexual Harassment

      Pros

      Absolutely nothing makes this job okay. If you are lucky and don’t get hit on by a creepy certain senior supervisor, you will still work to the bone with no recognition or gratitude. The senior news manager “doesn’t get up that early to watch.”

      Cons

      Be prepared to be hit on by a creepy senior supervisor. He’ll call you late at night, ask to come over, and beg you to smoke marijuana with him. He’ll ask you to g to his house and be extremely creepy. You will be in a constant state of anxiety trying to dodge his advances while keeping your job. When you finally ask him to stop, he’ll bad mouth you to everyone around and prevent future employment. The other senior manager in news is hostile, clueless about her own newsroom/the field, and will encourage you to lie to the community. Hostile management coupled with sexual harassment.

      Pros

      It felt like family to a great extent. Many employees stayed there for a long time.

      Cons

      Media is the red-headed stepchild of the Cox organization. It's all about Cox Business and Residential cable and internet services.

      Good people, pay needs to be better.

      Pros

      Generally they hire very competent people and they are good at their jobs. You’ll have good coworkers.

      Cons

      The pay is not at all commensurate with the cost of living and there are discrepancies in gender that I’m not sure have been fixed. Additionally, current efforts at diversity, equity, and inclusion are both long overdue and utterly insufficient.
