    I have been working at CoxReps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -there is a two week paid training program before you start
    -great coworkers
    -generous PTO
    -good benefits
    -business hours are 8:30am-5:30pm, you rarely have to stay late. You'll never take work home with you.
    -you can wear jeans on Fridays
    -you'll learn pretty quickly if this industry is for you

    Cons

    The Sales Assistant position is basically data entry. The work is easy but repetitive. Every week looks exactly the same. The turnover of assistants is very high. If you do stick around, you'll have to wait until an Account Manager class opens up. They talk it up like it's a big promotion, but you're really just an assistant still with twice the workload and hardly much of a pay raise. This is worth it if you want to become an Account Executive one day, just know that it will take you a few years of very low pay.

    Advice to Management

    You take good care of us. Keep it up.

    CoxReps is a wonderful place to work. I started working here right out of college and have been here ever since. The culture and people here are what drive me to stay. The changing work environment and challenges make each work day fun, different and exciting.

    The NY office is in a great location however larger work spaces would be ideal. Some work floors could definitely use more room.
