I worked at Oxford Global Resources full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great Mgmt. Team especially in Silicon Valley. If you are willing to work very hard you will enjoy success. Great opportunity to learn from some of the most seasoned AE's and Recruiters in the Bay Area. Commissions and salary are paid on a weekly basis.

Cons

Some internal systems are a little outdated. They love their business model and have perfected it, but it can be difficult at times for new employees to adjust. If you have worked for a company with a similar model you will be successful immediately. If not ask lots of questions to determine if its going to be a good fit.

    Pros

    Seems fairly easy to get placement, and there is opportunity to make money, although you would be in the vast majority if that was the case.

    Cons

    I have a background of working several years in sales as well as additional experience in other professional environments. Working at Oxford, suffice it to say, was a shock.

    Quotas are completely unattainable under the best of circumstances, and even if they were, you have about 2 hours of pointless internal meetings a day that prohibits you from being able to hit your quota.

    The sales management software we use was developed in the '80s and is practically unusable. I was once told that to streamline everything I should stop using a computer altogether (This was 2012)

    Basically you'll be prevented from being able to do your job effectively through paperwork, internal meetings, and improper management to the point where things get absurd.

    I wouldn't recommend working here, even if it's your first job out of college. The company has such a bad name in the industry that having Oxford on your resume won't help you get another job and frankly your experience here will turn you off the working world for the rest of your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to gain a little perspective by looking into how other companies manage their employees.
