Pros

Enjoy the life at Oxford is a one-time-in-a-life experience. The spirit energised in academic/research work often makes you feel so previliged to work there

Cons

It's lack of mordern facilicities, but for a 900 year old univ/city, what can you complaint for? However look out for the slow pace of life since it may well kill your ambition slowly...

    Pros

    Good working environment and friendly coworkers. First and second post doc positions have been similar and worthwhile. Research is fun and interesting with good development progress.

    Cons

    Teaching opportunities have been fine and easily attainable for me as I was an undergraduate here, however many colleagues haven't been able to get experience.

    Advice to Management

    Post docs should be found college affiliation.

    Pros

    Location - Oxford is a great city specially if you like Science and Academia in general as there is plenty with free talk by very important lectures every so often. Salary - for a being a non-profit organization the pay is good. For many positions, University of Oxford staff get better salaries than in other other university in the UK including London based institutions and the increased cost of life there. Flexibility - as for most non-profit organization in the UK you have flexible hours and home-work when necessary.

    Cons

    You still probably would get pay better in a company, but the pay is nonetheless good.
