    Pros

    Great environment! Young people. Helpful management. Benefits, flexing capabilities. Growing!

    Cons

    Staying on track. Getting distracted by networking a company too hard. 7:30AM start time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    8AM starting times. Perks; More bonus opportunities/contests. Friendlier staff. A few of my peers have complained that they feel unwanted when first starting out here. More tenured employees arn't very friendly to the new kids.

    Pros

    Good solid company. Will allow you to transfer part of your salary into Per Diem if you qualify leaving more money in your pocket. Never really had any problems with them and they have been easy to work with.

    Cons

    No paid vacations and benefits take a while to kick in but this is normal for contracting companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    I have been working at Oxford Global Resources as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    They advocated for me with my employer, and were upfront with me. Paychecks were always on time. They didn't give me a too hard a sell, and treated me professionally.

    Cons

    The online time reporting system was a little rough, but ultimately manageable and seemed to be under active improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to hire nice recruiters like Alison. Continue treating your contractors as valued assets.

    I have been working at Oxford Global Resources full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The reasons I took the job still hold true: casual team atmosphere, lot's of training and support, very interesting and challenging work, control over personal income, office full of do-ers earning six figures (not broke talkers), winning / competitive culture, meaningful work. It was a career move. This is one of the only places you will find that will take an entry level salesman and give them a base salary and an opportunity for six figures. Lots of room in the management structure for advancement. Everyone is promoted from within.

    Cons

    Very challenging. It is not easy to get started unless you are a natural and have some luck. For the rest of us, it's a matter of putting in tons of effort day in and day out to see the results. Like any other professional sales job, the first step is to learn the industry and build your book of business. It is fast paced so even when a book of business is built, you still have to continue building it (as opposed to say the financial industry where you might keep one client for 30 years. There is inevitably office politics to varying degrees depending on the division and location. If you aren't committed 100%, you will quit from frustration guranteed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add some quarterly or annual bonus or prize for hitting sales targets regardless of rankings.

    Pros

    Un-capped commission, great benefits, fast paced and growing company. Paid training, daily meetings and monthly performance reviews with feedback. If you are self-motivated and like sales this is the job for you!

    Cons

    Long hours, 1st year is the hardest but once you get beyond that all your hard work really starts to pays off with multiple consultants on assignment and sometimes doubling your income a year! If you don’t like sales and are not aggressive this is not the job for you.

    Great Team Atmosphere-Managment willing t o train and develop employees- AMAZING COMPENSATION- Flexible Schedule- Work Hard>Play Hard Mentality

    Cons

    If you're not a hard worker and not willing to put in the time to succeed, probably not the environment for you. We work hard, and are rewarded BIG.

    Pros

    Unlimited growth and earning potential. The amount of effort and work you put in directly correlates with the amount of money you can make. My commission has exponentially increased each year and I am on my fourth year. I qualified for a President's Club trip and was able to go on an amazing vacation to Mexico. Long term career growth is evident when looking at fellow colleagues who have been here 5, 10, 15+ years. Great office comradery and lots of day to day support.

    Cons

    Job can be difficult- high expectations. Definitely need to be money and self motivated in order to be successful here

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least appear concerned about your consultants. Give them a monthly 'warm& fuzzy' call. Pay 1099 and C2C more than W-2's.

    Pros

    Honestly I cant think of one. I guess the pay helped out while I was looking for a better job.

    Cons

    Prepare to me micro-managed to the extreme. Your manager will want to know what you are doing every second of the day. It was so bad that my manager gave me a hard time if I was in the bathroom longer than 3 minutes. So take a crap at home and not there. It will be hard to do that though because you will be there from 7am to 5pm. Why so early you ask? Beats the hell out of me. There are morning pow-wows with your group that you will have to pretend you are motivated to attend. They are completely worthless. So load up on coffee before you arrive to the office at 7am. But dont drink too much because you will be asked why you have to use the bathroom so much. And dont be one second late to that morning meeting. You will get written up if you walk in that door one second late. Literally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out.
