    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cox Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Instability of job security. Upper Management (Corporate) has no clue what is going on and does not make any provisions for changes. Constant "restructuring" which usually does more harm than good. They used to have a decent bonus structure but Corporate has taken that away too.

    Cons

    Lower Management and coworkers VERY nice. Decent Benefits. Good for family life.

    Advice to Management

    Plan effectively for changes. Listen to lower management. If it is not broken, don't "fix" it.
