Good work life balance with term time role and all school holidays off. Large territory to manage on your own. Supportive managers but targets are unfairly split amongst team members.
Broadband and lunch benefit
Long driving hours in term time
Oxford University Press a great place to be working. Can be fast paced and competitive at times. Changes happening all the time,lots of systems to work with. Have learnt a lot on the Structural side of the Business. Fast paced. Lovely building and colleagues Lots of training given and lots of meeting to attend
What can I say but this is the best job I have ever had since leaving school. Loved the job I was doing with the most amazing people. The hours were perfect and the location was also perfect. Also the agency I was with for this (Venn Group) were amazing too.
Employees with bullish attitudes, dated and dull working environment, lack of collaboration between teams, dirty toilets, reception staff can be rude, difficult to get meetings run on time.
Close walk to Oxford Town Centre
Office working environment lacks lusture
Engaging with OUP employees can be a challenge as they can be rude and quick to feel under attack. There is a lack of joined up business processes. On the other hand OUP has an interesting history. The Jericho office is within walking distance to oxford city centre.

I came to Oxford University Press in 2016 to do my work experience while in school, and I loved every minute of it. Every single member of staff is friendly and supportive, and they taught me a whole bunch to do with the publishing industry.
Nice people who try hard. But very backwards and living in the past. For a technical career, this is not the place to be. Soul crushing....boring projects - mostly IT focused. Most technologists cannot get jobs elsewhere so they come to OUP. I am looking to leave ASAP.
Such an incredible brand, but seems totally adrift in their most successful markets. No clear direction or leadership coming from above and their investment in staff skills is a joke. No practical training, rare feedback meetings with line managers and no clear advancement opportunities. A major disappointment to me.
Nice working environment. Staff are friendly
No training, no clear career path, little investment in people from management.
Working for the Law Online section for such a well known and respected company meant that I really felt like I was contributing. It was a relief to be doing a specifically described job and not just 'admin', further, to be doing it in my favourite area of work - online systems - was just heaven sent. I am still most proud of this job title! My manager was kind and his manager was brilliant. Such a difference from previous roles.
