Support from management

Management is a boys club...jalf the time out on long lunches, instead of helping the staff

Internal Communication

Depends on management.. I wouldn't know about information, I'd find out from others people as my manager forgot to inform his team..

Gender Equality

Management is 90% male

Overall compensation for your work

Little to no raises.only if you get a competitor offer di they then offer you a raise.

Work-Life Balance

Worked 8a-8p and not appreciated, just asked why things weren't done

Job Security

Going programmatic, lessening their need for people

Inclusive / Diverse

There was little diversity in the AE or management positions.

Company Culture

The culture has become tense due to industry changes and the brain drain caused by a recent early retirement offering.

Support from management

Some middle managers are more concerned with pleasing their bosses than with doing good work.

Teamwork

There is support from management on mot tasks, and a general spirit of teamwork. However a very varied lack of ability means that some help requires more work correcting than it is worth.

Freedom to work independently

I a highly experienced so for the most part I am left alone. New employees may have a very different experience.

Gender Equality

Women appear to have the same opportunities. The president of the company is female.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They offered early retirement to employees for whom their age and their length of employment added up to 75 or more. Older employees who were not payed at an upper management level were placed in the position where they feared that if they did not accept the package they would be laid off anyway, so most of them took it. Many in upper management took it as well. Several of these older employees are currently looking for work. The brain drain has been highly traumatic to regular business operations, but we are adapting. Still, what they did to these experienced and loyal employees was not right.

Career Development

If people like you and you fit the right demographic mix, you can get ahead even if you're under-qualified. If you think about a question before you say yes/no, you will probably be labeled disagreeable, in which case advancement will become a serious challenge.

Overall compensation for your work

This company pays notoriously below the industry average.

Office / Work Environment

Research employees sit in tiny cubicles, crammed together or in hallways.

Environmental Friendliness

This company says all the right things. They even mean some of it.

Work-Life Balance

There is a natural ebb and flow to research in this industry. This places some natural incentive to restrict one's own vacation time. Taking a full week vacation is frowned upon, but can be done with ample forethought.

Company Image

This company is known for its integrity in research and sales. They train the industry, and they remain the industry leader in spot television sales.

Job Security

A year ago this would have been five stars. The recent severance offering to older employees, and ongoing rumors of transition make it feel less secure. Clearly ability and experience did not play a factor in the most recent culling of the employees, so it is difficult to know what to expect.

Handicapped Accessibility

There are handicapped bathrooms on every floor. The stairs on one side of the building can complicate access, but there is street level access on the uphill side.

Workplace Safety

This company is a block from the UN. There are several missions in the building and a near constant police presence. Several building security personnel are also always on hand. There are regular fire and emergency preparedness drills. The building clearly does everything in its power to provide a reasonable degree of safety.

Challenging Work

Research is a really easy job that is hard to learn. There is a steep learning curve, but once you get it, its not that challenging.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company is proud of its diversity, and seems at times to prioritize it above all other business considerations.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Several of the suggestions I have made in the past have eventually been implemented without due recognition. My latest suggestion is that if the company does not prove to employees how much it values them, they have no incentive to offer new innovations. We deal with demographics but this is a people business. Do not loose sight of fairly valuing the people in your business.

What I like about the company

The best thing about CoxReps is the people. There are many good-natured, thoughtful, hard-working people in this company.

What I dislike about the company

There is a clear disconnect between the policy makers and the proper valuation of the great people working for them.
