    I have been working at Cox Communications full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    1. State of the art workout facility
    2. Job Stability
    3. Competitive Pay/Benefits (with Bonuses)
    4. Variety of options for seeking internal employment opportunities. With the various divisions, you can change jobs without having to leave the company and losing tenure.

    Cons

    1. Promotions given out based on who you know.
    2. Easy to become stagnant if you aren't proactive in taking control of the advancement of your career.
    3. Lots of politics. Upper management has their own agenda without giving clear strategy to the team. They may as well run the company on their own. Lack of clarity and prioritization.
    4. Very immature with effectively employing project management processes. PMs are more like project coordinators. Attempting to improve with new EPM and Assured Frameworks.
    5. Work-from-Home options are hit or miss.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggresive with initiating advancement opportunities for current employees. Hire/promote based on talent and skill, not relationships. Create more team synergy by setting clear direction and goals for your team.

    Pros

    HOURLY co workers are supportive,as we are all in the same sinking boat, bailing with a strainer!

    Cons

    There truly are no words that accurately describe the blatant and rampant culture of lies from "Supervisors" and "Management". Hourly employees are intimidated on a daily basis. Raise structure is a joke.Bonuses that used to go to the actual revenue GENERATING employees(The HOURLY employees) have been spent rather on "team building exercises" for Supervisors and Management. Some to include trips to Vegas, white water rafter, paintball excursions, and 10K bonuses paid out to Sups and Mgrs. No allowances are made for actual human issues or problems; If it doesn't fit in the M&Ps...it doesn't exist Absolutely no opportunity for any type of advancement regardless of qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Try respecting your employees, Your "yes" men and women Supervisors and Managers are unable to consistently tell the same tales to the same audience. Hourly employees are the actual backbone here. If you state you have an open door policy,let us have some transparency as well. TELL THE TRUTH.
