"Great environment for research"

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

Faculty members are world class, with research work well supported by industry and government grants.

Cons

Graduate student support is limited. Libraries (atleast for engineering and the sciencies) are crummy. The collegiate system is designed to support undergraduates -- while academic terms and the concomitant social buzz lasts for 6 months a year, a PhD cannot help but feel isolated the rest of the way.

    I worked at Oxford University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Enjoy the life at Oxford is a one-time-in-a-life experience. The spirit energised in academic/research work often makes you feel so previliged to work there

    Cons

    It's lack of mordern facilicities, but for a 900 year old univ/city, what can you complaint for? However look out for the slow pace of life since it may well kill your ambition slowly...
