Big enough to provide great opportunities, but not so big as to be run by douchbags.

I worked at Oxford Instruments full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Excellent working environment.
Good career progression opportunities.
Possibility of moving between roles in the company to find your niche.
Honest leadership, I felt like this place was trying hard not to screw you over.
Excellent travel opportunities (at least in my role)
Friendly and respectful Management

Cons

Super stingy bonus when the companies stock soared, shouldn't complain too much though. most companies wouldn't give anything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Honestly there's not much I'd change. Communication with upper management could be a bit slow though. ie waiting to find out if my contract would be renewed took so long I ended up looking elsewhere.

    I worked at Oxford Instruments full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has been around a long time. A lot of good people there but the general feeling is that the company is a hostile environment. I have to write 100 words for this review to be accepted so this sentence is a part of that. Thanks.

    Cons

    Communication very one sided at times. Employees seem fearful, high turnover and no trust in upper management. Nobody bothers to offer suggestions anymore as the path is predetermined and no good deed goes unpunished here. It verges on military hierarchy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people and treat them with respect.
