    Pros

    You work with extremely intelligent people. You have opportunity to learn a lot but you need to reach for the knowledge as it will not be served to you.

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay and no social recognition for being scientist. As every University, Oxford is very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Guide PhD students more during the first year of the course.
