I worked at Cox Communications full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Free cable / Discounted internet and phone and premium services
Benefits are pretty good
Pension plan
Because it is a private company, it invests in itself. Public companies don't do it to the level Cox does it.

Cons

Investment dollars are spread between markets inequitably; some markets get upgrades and others languish
Engineering groups in the field sites hit a plateau and growth is difficult beyond that without going to corporate
Corporate dictated a little too much in terms of design; innovation in the field sites was often ignored and dismissed for the corporate approved method

Advice to Management

Use the talent you have throughout the company too, not just at Corporate. The folks at corporate are good, but there are some amazing folks in the markets.

    Needs to continue upgrading quality of staff to compete in a more and more crowded space.
