    I have been working at Cox Media Group full-time for more than 5 years


    Privately owned companies have much more freedom to run their businesses as needed. CMG has only been organized for five years under Cox Enterprises and has shown incredible growth. The formation was a consolidation and right-sizing event which resulted in hundreds of layoffs. Bitterness from former employees is understandable.


    Navigating Cox Enterprises is challenging externally and internally. I see negative reviews for Cox Media Group (broadcast, publishing and digital) that are clearly intended for Cox Communication (cable, internet, phone). When employees do not clearly know for whom they work, there are obviously internal communication problems. Internal movement is nearly impossible. Once hired into a position, an employee is there to stay. There is security in stability, but some people never grow to their full potentials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is actively working to change things. Movement within any company can only be justified through growth or restructure. If the businesses are working well (and they are), there is little need to change. Quarterly employee meetings are held. They are very informative and inclusive. Management members at all levels are approachable. That is rare and it is a quality in which CMG excels. CMG and Cox Enterprises (parent corporate entity) manage cutting edge technologies and growth opportunities. It would be assuring to employees to see management looking from within to staff these areas instead of using external recruiters. The Most Wanted site and internal employee referrals are encouraging work tools. Some employees register with Cox recruiters for opportunities to move. That is dysfunctional and discouraging. For the most part, the management teams are in-sync and they work well together.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Cox Media Group in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    No phone calls, which was nice. Met face to face a few times, and did some sample work for the higher-ups. The waiting period was tough, though; it took weeks to finally get an answer, and then more so yet to finally begin working.
