    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Cox Media Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent pay and good benefits for the time, they suck now

    Cons

    If you stand up for yourself you get labelled "difficult to work with." Male workers have to roll over and take it and not fight back. Males encouraged not to make waves with problem employees, cannot express themselves when they have a problem, even when said problem leads to policy changes. Overall one of the worst office experiences I've had to deal with in 30 years of media experience. Refuse to promote males from within, even when they are more qualified than the females that get the jobs in the name of diversity.

    Pros

    Good benefits and live balance.

    Cons

    They are not loyal at all with the employees. Last year the group closed 5 of their media because they just wanted to take new directions in the business.

    Current Employee - Senior Account Executive in New York, NY

    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company has good benefits, and once you get above the middle-level positions it's amazing how much more freedom and perks you have. The people are great, management is good, and there's flexibility when needed.

    Cons

    It's hard to work your way up, especially of late. A lot of it has to do with luck and timing more than skill. Budgets come down late every year, and a lot of times it feels like they nickle and dime out of MBO/commission when they can.
