I have been working at Cox Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Used to really love the people I worked with
If you know the right people, you will have great opportunities to learn + branch out

Cons

Too many contractors taking over previous full time employee jobs
Many people being let go or quitting who were a real asset to Cox
It is frustrating to see new people being brought in who don't know anything about what they're supposed to do and aren't willing to learn.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The people who have been here for 15+ years and really know their stuff are the people we should keep, not let go.

    I worked at Cox Communications as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Highly functional and spacious work areas, with large cubes, plenty of windows to let in sunlight, and lots of glass doors that give the office an open feel.

    Cons

    Misdirected effort combined with unrealistic deadlines make for high pressure projects with little value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people with respect. Weed out managers who act like angry high school teachers. Push people and they'll move, but not where you want them to go. Pull people and they'll move with you. Respect, appreciation and encouragement are winning strategies. Intimidate your workers and everyone loses.

    Pros

    Used to be a great company and wonderful pay, but since we've gone corporate, it's all about the $1 .. long term employees are hard to find their any more

    Cons

    Sales Reps & Supervisors only care about themselves ... HORRIBLE PROCESSES IN PLACE ... one department never knows what the other is doing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit trying to make yourself look better by belittleing the other supervisors ....No one likes your fake smiles, just keep it real.
