I have been working at Cox Communications full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Paid Vacations,Paid Sick, Paid Holidays, 401K, Company Vehicle and Paid Training.

Cons

Working as a Field Technician is very hard and stressful. Working in attics and up on poles while carrying heavy equipment Tools, Signal Meter. A days work can make your body ache for several, and job is becoming more mentally stressful as loss of subscribers do to the over saturation of competition.

Advice to Management

Please praise your techs more, last 3 years have been about what is going wrong and less focus on what techs do bring to the table and the important role they play. We hear more about how bad economy is and need to do start doing things this and that which is okay but, please deliver the message in a positive way and not a threating way to our job security.

    I have been working at Cox Communications full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits. Most worker bees are nice and willing to help each other.

    Cons

    Some management is self consumed with their own promotion at the cost of quality work. When something doesn't go right, they are quick to place blame on one of their subordinates even if this was something caused out of their own decision. In short, often times there is no right decision the subordinate could've made. It really comes down to if the manager does not like the outcome they will look for someone to blame rather than take ownership.

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment to does not incentivize self-centered leadership. Have more frequent surveys from subordinates.
