Monkeys could manage better
Level Two Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA16 December 2017
You find yourself doing redundant work, all because the various people involved don't like working together. Instead, they want to all be the lead person, but not do anything. All tasks are priority 1, which leads to a lot of stress. You are given tasks, but neither the time nor resources to adequately perform the tasks. No feedback on your performance, so have fun trying to improve. The tier 1 call center is outsourced, but has no real power, so all calls are sent through to you. This leads to long phone queues.

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

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.
