    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time

    Pros

    Great culture to work in. Does what's right for their employees. A diverse culture and one that promotes differences across the many markets they operate in. Company is focused on growth and innovation, but does not forget about being the best in the traditional operations.

    Cons

    Sometimes being too "Cox nice" leads to avoiding making some tough decisions. The unintended consequence.....the company may not be the market leader as a result of being too employee friendly.

    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time

    Pros

    Cox Media Group offers a great culture - especially on the newspaper division's digital and technology teams. The teams are dedicated, hard working, and know the value of their talent as well as the importance of treating everyone with respect.

    Cons

    The media industry is under pressure, so we are often asked to do more with less.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in digital innovation initiatives, you are already doing this with great results in the new content verticals. The overall goals can be achieved, but we will need additional investments on the flagship brands as well.
