I get to present my research to students, which I really enjoy, as well as working closely on projects with one of the professors. The social and cultural scene is excellent.
Despite supposedly to be a cathedral of spreading the knowledge that is not exactly how it worked. Not training provided, not collaborative environment, at some point they push with some duties that you are not contracted for that or outside your knowledge and skills without any additional information or support.
relaxed, at some points and very flexible in the timing
not training not collaboration between colleagues not answer to questions related to some problems
This organisation are awful, worked as internal contractor, lost job in lockdown without furlough and no support.The people majority are rude, arrogant, full of self importance, worst company I have ever worked for. They focus on mandatory courses full of rubbish and offer no support for new starters or training.

Very racilly and culturally biased business. I experienced discrimination from admin colleagues and top management.

What can I say? Oxford, like all academic institutions, employs very poor working conditions for early career academics. Many are asked to virtually work for free in order to 'bolster up their CV' with little to no financial compensation. Short term academic contracts are the norm and most will not pay the bills, especially if you have a family.
The organisation is not profit led so can be slow paced and relaxed, but it does not always motivate it's employees with any performance initiatives. Also can be difficult to support university systems and projects due to unusual methods and structure.
Good annual leave and pension.
Great place for academic interactions but zero job security for any academic, irrespective of standing. There seem to be no permanent positions which are not already filled so new academics have to continue to live on 1-3-5 year contracts with no prospects of staying employed, even when contributing to the culture of the University.
