    I worked at Oxford Global Resources full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team culture. You get to learn from some good recruiters and account managers in the industry. Hard work but it pays off.

    Cons

    Low base pay and out of date technology.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Oxford Global Resources full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working for Oxford in their Milwaukee office for over a year now and would recommend it to anyone who is willing to work hard in a fast pace environment. I would not recommend this role for anyone looking for an "easy" job. You are held accountable for the work you put in, but with the proper work ethic and desire to succeed the opportunity here is tremendous. Management is willing to let you grow and really work with you in a capacity I haven't seen with other companies. There is a lot of room for growth as Oxford likes to promote from within and the company is rapidly expanding. To reiterate, if you are looking to coast by this is not the place for you, but if you are willing to own your work, and do whatever it takes to succeed, you will find yourself quite happy here.

    Cons

    The unpredictability of working in the people industry. Difficult to control all factors of your work.

    Pros

    uncapped commission, opportunity to grow within the company, relaxed dress code, hands-on managers/great training

    Cons

    long hours-start at 7am, 45 hour minimum, care a lot about number of dials

    Advice to Management

    stop caring so much about amount of dials, calls should be based on quality not quantity

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

    Pros

    Great training at the start, unlimited commission, you get what you put in, if you are an outside account manager you get to go to client sites and meet with clients directly, ability to work with national offices increases ability to fill positions, good management depending on the site

    Cons

    Can be long hours at the start, short term view versus long term due to being a publicly traded company, it can take a while (about 2 years) until you are able to have to some real management responsibilities, you have quotas because this is a sales position so make sure you are ok in an environment that has these types of demands

    Advice to Management

    Think Long term and not quarter to quarter, continue to invest in employees, identify high performers quickly and hold on to them

    I have been working at Oxford Global Resources full-time

    Pros

    With luck and hard work unlimited income. Lots of training. Promote from within if you want to or if you just want to sell that is great too. Great team environment.

    Cons

    Upper Management is completely disconnected from the organization. Work life balance sucks yes you can take time but it is not encouraged. Benefits are not as good as they could be for the money.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the base for both new and senior employees. Either less expensive benefits or charge a bit more and make them better.

    I worked at Oxford Global Resources (More than a year)

    Pros

    good salary worked remotely (from home) the people at Oxford Global Resources were honest, professional, and good to deal with

    Cons

    The only downside was that it was a contract job working for Hewlett Packard backing up data for large clients, Though I was only allowed to dock 40 hours per week, I actually put in considerably more. They migrated from an older AIX platform to a newer Linux platform, and were disappointed that I somehow also did not know the Linux base operating system. TSM scripts that were invoked within the operating system that ran fine before did not now. I told them (the HP client) I was not a Linux programmer, but that made little impact. Eventually, for economic reasons, they farmed the job out to India,

    Mon - fri schedule, i liked everyone I worked with,capped commission, relaxed dress code,i

    Cons

    Long hours, start time was 7:30 am and end time was 9:30 . mandatory 9 hrs a day work schedule, there was a lot of micromanagement, they stressed on phone time even if you hot your goals every month, huge turn over rate, they dumped people faster than they trained them

    Advice to Management

    Provide more training, micromanage less, reduced work hours, and stop stressing about phone time if goals are met
