I have been working at Oxford Gene Technology full-time (More than 5 years)
It is a small company, that somehow is still able to compete with the giants in the field.
They are open about their decisions and you can talk to everyone in the company from your colleague to the CEO and expose your views and affect changes.
Flexible working hours (Flexi-time) is good
Nice benefits package.
One of its pros, is also a con. Being a small company, the range of projects and career progression within the company is not always easy and/or feasible.
Advice to Management
The inflexibility on adopting new technologies for work and collaboration is an issue, especially for a small company that should remain agile to be able to respond quickly to the changing competitive landscape
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oxford Gene Technology (Oxford, England (UK)) in July 2014.
I found out about the opening through a recruiter, whom I contacted with my CV. When the company was interested, he set up an initial phone interview. Afterwards, I was asked to come to an in-person interview. All communication up to that point was through the recruiter. At the in-person interview, I gave a short (10-15 minute) presentation to the computational biology team, then answered questions about it and my background. Afterwards, I spoke with two senior members of the team, who asked me more about my background and interests.
