    I have been working at OUP USA full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Oxford is like being in a large, caring family; it's hard to find an employee who isn't genuinely invested in helping others learn and grow into their current role, or a future one. Managers, even on the senior level, are very approachable, which allows the work culture to be simultaneously professional and comfortable. It's possible to move around in the company if one finds that he or she would like to switch departments (from marketing to editorial, or from Academic/Trade to Reference, etc.), and there is a great benefits package. There are volunteering opportunities and company "clubs" that permit employees to explore interests and network with colleagues, such as the Knitting Club, the NY Social Committee, and Green NYC. Easy to be considered for full-time employment after interning within the company.

    Cons

    Overtime has to be approved before it occurs. Training is limited to peer mentoring (the benefit to this is: virtually everyone is eager to help). Low salary compared to competitors. Promotions are slow forthcoming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a stronger training program rather than having new hires rely on their peers' knowledge.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at OUP USA in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by email to come in for an interview, about 3 weeks after submitting my resume. I had one interview with the managing editor, and a short interview with HR. The interview was standard, with the typical questions of "what are your strengths and weaknesses?", "tell me a bit about yourself," and "what kind of manager do you prefer?"
