    I worked at Cox Media Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my time at Cox Media Group. Everyone I worked with was dedicated and passionate, and I felt appreciated as well as fairly compensated. The company has a ton of great benefits and does a lot of intangibles for employees (parties, free food, contests). Plenty of parking on-site and the cafeteria is good (really nice staff too).

    Cons

    Cox Media Group is undergoing some change right now (google "cox media group selling tv") and it's leading to uncertainty for many groups, especially shared services. A lot of people have left the company for that reason. Also, there is a lot of what seems like unnecessary layers of management. Finally, the markets aren't always respectful of corporate's plans and goals, and unfortunately the markets win that battle a lot.

    Advice to Management

    Morale has taken a huge hit and people are less happy to work at Cox Media Group than they used to be. The transparency around the selling of the TV stations is good, but what people really care about are the future of their jobs. A lot of people at the company have been through selloffs and reorganizations, and the uncertainty is making people want to leave for jobs where there is certainty (or at least more certainty).
