Good Beginning....but the company lets you down in the end

GAB (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsCo-workers are nice to work with. Casual dress is accepted. Flexible hours.

ConsNo promotions. Extra education won't make a difference to your salary or your position. Some folks have Masters degrees and do menial work. They say they look for people of integrity but they ignore work records and fire people a week before Christmas. The management is not interested in career development, and unless you are in marketing, sales, or editorial you are routinely ignored and your work is taken for granted. Most people are fearful of losing their jobs so they usually don't speak up to moments of injustice. Human Resources cares nothing about employees they only follow the company motto for lower employees, but management gets carte blanche to make their own rules. They don't care about your personal difficulties before they fire you. Very little compassion.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people who work for you. Create an environment where people feel comfortable no matter the department. Pay people what they're worth. Don't be dismissive of employees' skills.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Conservative and Traditional

    Managing Editor (Current Employee) New York, NY

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


    Pros: Very predictable work schedule and work load. Good benefits. Cons: Workload is more than salary range. Not flexible or open… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
