    I have been working at Oxford Instruments full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good people. Friendly atmosphere. Hard working employees.

    Cons

    There is an old way of doing things and a new way of doing things - those who have been around a long time are resistant to change even for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some good managers in place to run the day to day. Have more fun
