    Pros

    Cox Media Group does strive to promote from within. They have an excellent HR department and the benefits package is desirable among all those working in the media field.

    Streamline the onboarding process.

    Cox provides good benefits and a lot of perks from corporate.

    Cox Media Group is cutting jobs all over and swirling at the moment. There is no end in sight.

    Deal with people honestly and stop lying about cuts and changes. Spend time on delivering value to audiences and advertisers instead of constantly reorganizing.

    I worked at Cox Media Group part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - The staff is incredible. Everyone is like a family and treats you with kindness
    - There is something to learn everyday and they make sure you learn it. They treat you with respect and help you and guide you.
    -

    Cons

    - Company where I worked was a bit small, so there wasn't much room to grow into positions that you would have wanted to uphold on the future.
    - Obviously radio hours are kind of sucky but you do it because you love it! 5am-1pm shifts aren't that bad, you have the rest of the day to yourself!

    Advice to Management

    -Continue to do what you're doing and making everyone feel like they are welcomed into the COX Media Family!

    Pros

    Salaries are decent, and the people you work with are generally nice.

    Cons

    Tons of work, which leads to mistakes. Incompetent managers. Discriminates against older employees, though it is disguised to avoid lawsuits.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cherishing the almighty dollar, stop selling papers to inferior companies, care about the product and the community.
