Great culture and benefits, but lower salary
Nice people and work environment. Included very good subsidised catering, great pension and a supportive work culture. Local area is expensive and commuting in is difficult.

Lovely people... mostly
The HR Advisor promised me that there was a progressive role as she was retiring but then she changed her mind. I left a permanent and better paid role to go to OUP - disappointing.The people at OUP are lovely, the offices are lovely. i just felt used.

Lovely people and good work life balance
OUP offers a great work life balance and there are so many lovely people who work there. The only problem is the pay, which is very low, especially considering it is based in Oxford.
