    Pros

    Seems fairly easy to get placement, and there is opportunity to make money, although you would be in the vast majority if that was the case.

    Cons

    I have a background of working several years in sales as well as additional experience in other professional environments. Working at Oxford, suffice it to say, was a shock.

    Quotas are completely unattainable under the best of circumstances, and even if they were, you have about 2 hours of pointless internal meetings a day that prohibits you from being able to hit your quota.

    The sales management software we use was developed in the '80s and is practically unusable. I was once told that to streamline everything I should stop using a computer altogether (This was 2012)

    Basically you'll be prevented from being able to do your job effectively through paperwork, internal meetings, and improper management to the point where things get absurd.

    I wouldn't recommend working here, even if it's your first job out of college. The company has such a bad name in the industry that having Oxford on your resume won't help you get another job and frankly your experience here will turn you off the working world for the rest of your life.

    Advice to Management

    Try to gain a little perspective by looking into how other companies manage their employees.

    Pros

    Not comming up with anything

    Cons

    You better be one of their golden boys otherwise you will get lost in the shuffle. Be prepared to be ridiculed each day not just for sales numbers, but for appearance and personality. Nothing like having meetings that turn out to be more like a roast than a business meeting. Management is the worst that I've been around. Most of them just like to sit and wait for a paycheck or walk around practicing their golf swing while providing no support to their sales teams. I feel bad for anyone still working at this company or for anyone who is looking at Oxford as a potential career. Whenever a companies career page says, "we are always looking for qualified individuals", like Oxfords website says....thats a red flag and a sign that turnover is very commonplace.
