    Pros

    Great income potential if you work very hard but if you're just an average worker it isn't that great. Good benefits. President's Club is a great thing the company does for its employees. Good training.

    Cons

    Highly rigid schedule with long days and mandatory overtime. A ton of turnover- revolving door. Salaries are very low.

    Pros

    Each individual is responsible for their own success. On their journey they will learn the ins-and-outs of every organization, how to sell and control the entire sales life cycle over the phone. Health Benefits, the business keeps you on your toes and the experience is a great learning opportunity.

    Cons

    Lack of commitment to a true purpose, executives don't hold themselves accountable for the organizations short fallings, no transparency between locations or offices, kill or be killed environment which is promoted as opposed to a collaborative team effort. No out of the box training or thinking, very process oriented. This is a Phone Job, not a Sales Job - Volume over knowledge and training.. Pretty high turnover after individuals see/learn this after a few weeks/months of no commission.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Connect with your employees and act like you care - it's more like a body shop as opposed to a fine tuned selling machine. Play the part in improving employee's lives, enabling a good balance of business or professional goals, and also the personal aspirations of the employee. Garbage men make more in Base salary, and Mandatory Overtime every other month for nothing in return is exhausting. You can make 6 Figures, but will not have a life outside of work, stress, and health problems. Sales is "supposed" to be fun

    I worked at Oxford Global Resources as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good group of people/Co-workers & management, nice enough - but they "throw Away" talented individuals, and keep Less hard-working Ones, treating them like gold!

    Cons

    The location is very far North of Boston, and the roads up there are Difficult yo travel - very congested, and the Office park is waay too Big.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honor & value those individuals who work hard

    Contracting for Oxford: Pleasantly efficient processes, but you will have to cover your own benefits

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Tampa, FL
    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Tampa, FL

    I have been working at Oxford Global Resources full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Oxford's system for processing, paying, and communicating with contractors working for them at company sites is very efficient, far more so than many other companies I've worked with.

    Cons

    No benefits to speak of for contractors. The medical insurance offered is not aligned with the requirements of the Affordable Care Act (I'm guessing it was grandfathered in), and my household income and the gross hourly salary is being murdered by having to cover COBRA, sick time, vacation, and personal time. And I had just better pray that nothing arises requiring disability pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Providing real medical benefits will significantly increase retention of contractors. Contracting is a good dynamic for many people, and personally, my sole objection to working with you longer beyond a single contract is that we simply can't afford having to cover our own medical insurance. And that little qualification of having to work both the day before and the day after a holiday in order to get paid for it, so that contractors cannot ever take a four-day weekend with the rest of the perm employees? That is a nasty little trick. People perform better if they can get some rest and some time away from the office.

    Highly Unethical Company - Do Not Use Oxford Unless You Enjoy Getting Screwed

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Oxford Global Resources as a contractor

    Pros

    My recruiter appeared hard working since he kept calling every month to check on my availability.

    Cons

    My recruiter repeatedly made assumptions and over promised on goods. He did not keep his word. Even worse, his actions were condoned by management. The company only cares about making profit at the expense of the contractor/client. They are not forthcoming with contractors and try to take advantage of their intermediary role by playing contractor against client. They try to intimidate by referencing their contracts but will not abide by their verbal promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look up what integrity means.

    Great co-workers and potential to make money

    Tightening market makes it more difficult to ramp up good clients for placement

    More consistent rules across all offices.

    Pros

    The time you put will equal the success you have with this company. Unlimited commission was very nice and the hours you do put in pay off. Always enjoyed working with upper management as it seemed like they were always there to help.

    Cons

    Some days/weeks can really drag out and seem to go on forever. Must be willing to dial the phone up 300 times a day and reach 3 hours of phone time. Base salary is very low and stays the same no matter how much work you put in. Must stay self motivated to turn this job into a career.
