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

No opinion of CEO

I worked at Oxford Instruments full-time (Less than a 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 Management

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 have been working at Oxford Instruments full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    the concord office takes care of their employees good people to work with you will never be bored

    Cons

    upper management is in the UK and have a very different culture attitude, actions are taken with out realizing implications to the individual worker. seriously over worked medical plan is not very good

    Advice to Management

    oh there isnt an talking to the upper management. major layoffs but they are still purchasing other companies? each time another company is added no administration plan is implemented.
