Production Worker (Current Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – June 8, 2018
You will work hard at this company and there is high turnover which is typical of a manufacturing business. Culture is in transition with new CEO in England and new President in Scotts Valley which should address a lot of the issues. Engineering lags but all other areas are strong and productive. Some great people.
Production Technician (Former Employee) – Scotts Valley, CA – January 8, 2018
It was a great place to work, most of the co-workers were great to work with. Management was good, but could use some help on time management. Probably one of the most competent pays in the Santa Cruz area.
Office Co-ordinator (Former Employee) – Fremont, California – October 14, 2017
This place was an excellent learning process for me. It was head quartered in Concord, Ma. Sometimes the communication between the headquarter and us was poor but workable. The communication between the technicians and the parts that were available to them to complete them work was poor but we managed to keep all of our customers up and running as long as we could. The other employees were kind and refreshing to work with and although we had some difficulties we worked hard to complete the tasks on hand.
Providing customer service to our customer in a timely manner

It was a nice experience to work at Oxford Instruments. Management is very committed to Safety and Quality. Great team of colleagues; very knowledgeable in their fields. Smart president and down to earth included employee's opinions.
Pay/benefits, opportunities to improve.
Work overload; elimination of positions and redistribution of duties.
Lab technician, here my work responsibilities are (Former Employee) – Carteret, NJ – January 26, 2015
Nice and friendly work environment, Whole new work experience in super conducting industry. Hardest but important part was providing accurate test results whiten time limit to support production. quarterly and annually profit share and good health benefit.
Oxford Instruments is a great place with a global reach and vision. A typical day would include correspondence with offices in Boston and the UK as the team would collaborate on upcoming trade shows or ongoing projects. As with any place the most difficult part of the job would sometimes include difficult co-workers, but for the most part I had too much to do to worry about how they affected my day.
Friday company lunches in the Dallas office!
Limited exposure or information on upcoming projects.
Ok place to work just don't get comfortable. You are replaceable..
Chemical Technician (Former Employee) – Carteret, NJ – April 7, 2013
A typical day at Oxford for me was collecting the scheduled work orders for the day and then stategizing the game plan for the team so that the work would be done efficiently and everyone would have their scheduled breaks and lunches. I learned how to manage a team and work with different chemicals and get tasks completed ahead of time. My co-workers were great for the most part. But management constatly switched personnel for me to work with. The most enjoyable part of the job would have to have been the hours and the location and of course, the people.
