    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, lots of PTO, you can form great relationships with your clients.

    Cons

    With new ownership under Apollo, lots of good employees nationally being laid off, our 401K match was reduced, expense accounts gone, sales goals doubled, and not much training or support. Typical investment firm, squeeze what you can in a short period of time & sell for more than what you paid.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Cox Media Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great benefits and unlimited PTO - The company culture used to be great, but in the last 2-3 years it has changed for the worse

    Cons

    - Low pay compared to other companies in Atlanta - Higher-level management needs to have clear expectations; they have no vision for the company and a really low bar for middle management - Middle management is completely clueless, but that is not surprising since nepotism is the only way to get promoted. Cox values about D&I are just lip service at CMG - Lots of company politics and very little actual work is done around here. No wonder they had to sell almost all of their properties - Not remote-friendly and do not allow flexible-schedules

    Abundant resources, great people, and great benefits. They promote from within the company as well.

    There's a lot of training, but it's a good negative because they're always rolling out new tools and resources.

    I worked at Cox Media Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are at the core of this business no doubt! I worked at Kudzu.com and absolutely loved my job managing digital campaigns. The company has so much to offer like getting involved in outside activities within Cox as a whole, and there is so much room to grow. There is amazing work/life balance, great benefits, and the structure of the company is very organized and financially stable.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of.

    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits for a media company. My direct manager is an advocate for her employees and does what she can within the confines of workplace politics.

    Cons

    Uncertainty within my specific team as merger is underway. Treated as cog in the wheel. As media moves more and more to video, editorial is continually diminished and prioritized lower than those involved in video. Usual office politics. Editorial is tied to the computer screen and it's nearly impossible to socialize or get visibility from upper management.

    Benefits are great. I learned so much working there.
