On Air Talent (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FL16 November 2017
Even though management regularly claims "we win with our product, we succeed with our people", people are not important to Cox. The shareholders and upper management are the only people that matter. Loyalty, talent, vision, drive, and creativity count for nothing.

Stressful and can have a culture of favoritism
Receivable Management (Current Employee) –  TX15 November 2017
The culture here is one that depending on how you mesh with the management, depends on your entire experience.
If they decide that they like you, you have a better chance of promotions/free time/ability to think independently.
If they do not, you will constantly be micromanaged/critiqued and given very little assistance with anything you need help with
Pros
wonderful coworkers, nice location
Cons
work life balance is off/favoritism/unclear management

Nice entry level position
Advertising Assistant at Cox Media Group (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CA15 November 2017
Nice starter job, a lot of turnover due to low pay. The work can be monotonous and if sales isn't your passion there isn't a lot of opportunity to explore different avenues of advertising.

Media Business is tough
Supervisor Payment Processing (Current Employee) –  Austin, TX6 November 2017
With the Media Business moving so fast pace keeping up can be difficult. Sometimes Cox was behind the times, unfortunately. The culture in Austin Texas is great. The culture in Atlanta is more cut-throat.

Productive and great work environment
Board Operator / Producer (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA30 October 2017
The best thing about CMG is the PEOPLE! It is an amazing work environment with the ability to grow and learn many different roles. I learned everything there is to know about operations and how to be a Producer. The management for the most part are good people, they do have the downside of promoting some managers based off of time spent with the company, and not actual ability to manage employees.
Pros
Great Benefits, Amazing People
Cons
Pay isn't great, Lower Levels of Management.

Build/Release Engineer (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GA27 September 2017
Cox Media used to be a great company to work for. Due to changes in management, the focus on innovation and creation has changed. We have lost a lot of great people because of it.

Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GA1 September 2017
Cox is a great company to be a part of. They provide an atmosphere to learn and contribute but at the same time push to employees to be innovative and creative to achieve company goals and solve problems. There are great benefits and a stimulating culture. The media industry is an industry in transition so job stability has been shaken which has been an hindrance to moarale. Nevertheless the the company and its employees continue to strive to achieve company goals.
Pros
stimulating work environment, benefits
Cons
unstable media industry

Great place to work with super perks
SALES ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Saint Petersburg, FL24 August 2017
You never know what may happen on any given day. You may see unusual people in the hall. Puppys running down the hall, or hear a sound check for a band you have never heard of, but find that you like their music. The normal day to day is pretty standard. Come in, do what is required and leave. But sometimes it gets crazy. That is what make the atmosphere wonderful.
Pros
Free food occasionally. Free concerts
Cons
work on tight deadlines

demanding when called to fix printing press that needs to print the papers due on a dead line
Electrical System Engineer (Former Employee) –  Franklin, OH5 August 2017
I have only been with this company for a short period and would still be with them but they choose to close the print facility and move it to another location out of state. The opportunities to learn how to fix a range of different equipment was challenging mind set. Management let us control our operation but had a not so good information relay to the night shift guys. The most enjoyable was all the different talent of skills sets my co workers had.
Pros
good set of guys with good skill set to work with
Cons
Do not like the very late night shift

Training
Multi-Media Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Austin, TX5 August 2017
Cox need to train new-hires so they feel equipped to do their job successfully.

Much top down pressure which translated loudly on the sales floor. Most of the employees are a bit lost unless they have been employed longer than two years.

High turnover of sales people. Constant Performance reviews which seems like they are continuous documenting your performance for legal reasons
Pros
benefits
Cons
no training and poor management

Company is very innovative and always looking how to make a difference in the media world. Their in-house research and partnered companies are the best I have ever seen.
