One Team with One Goal to Escape!
When most people think of the word family, what often comes to mind are blood relatives. However for Cox employees, their team is like family. Hear Evann’s story about about how she enjoys working with her team.
By Evann Lee
Account Manager, Cox Media Group
Selling suits for Hugo Boss out of the Mall at Millenia is how I worked my way through college at the University of Central Florida. I took a class called Selling Electronic Media and fell in love with the idea of media sales. I interviewed for several Account Executive positions until a friend of a friend introduced me to Mario Mendoza, Jenny Bromiley and Brian Cole of WFTV 27. I interviewed with them and practically begged for a job knowing that I would love it and hopefully excel in the opportunity.
Since then, I have never looked back.
A Day in the Life …
Typically, I start my day by discussing the overnight numbers from the day before with my teammates. We all grab a coffee and talk about what premiered; which advertisers we saw last night on TV, and discuss our day-to-day happenings before diving into appointments or office work.
I’ve been fortunate to develop lifelong friendships with my clients. They trust me to deliver results day in and day out, making a huge difference in moving the needle for their businesses and it’s an amazing feeling.
Outside of work, you will find me at the beach or with my family and our three dogs, Niko, Olive and Nori — we are the crazy dog people that treat them like kids! Speaking of kids, I am also 6 months pregnant and have seriously considered giving my daughter the middle name “CMG Orlando” (LOL!) because of how loved and supported I have been by everyone at this company.
Our entire team had a day of team building at Escape Room. This is when a group has 60 minutes to solve puzzles and unlock clues that lead to an escape out of a themed room. It was so much fun to see everyone jump in, split into groups and tackle each side of the room. We snorted, almost cried out of frustration, praised each other whenever a clue was solved, and all the while positively encouraged each other. While we didn’t make it out this time, we had a blast and became even closer because of this experience!
The culture of the company truly makes me love my job. Our team is like a family — we all work super hard and never say “I’m too busy to help”, or “I’ll get to that later.” Everyone digs in and takes a couple minutes to help each other and make sure we all have what we need to win every day!
Special thanks to Evann for letting us get a glimpse of her day to day in this version of our Cox Employee Spotlight.
