Pros

Top university, especially in humanities and social science
Oxford is a beautiful city and the university's college are also beautiful and historic

A lot of bureaucracy
Somewhat "insular" culture for academic hires - it seems departments often prefer to hire internal candidates who "know the system" rather than world leaders

Reduce administration & red tape
