Fun place to work
Copy Editor (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDJune 3, 2018
Great work environment and friendly people. Having a good time and getting along with everyone is a big part of working there.

Time management is not the best for all parties involved. Employees sometimes overloaded with work.

Cool place, spends money on employees happiness/wellness
Financial Writer (Former Employee) –  Delray Beach, FLDecember 18, 2017
Great place to work especially if you are a natural go getter who needs a stimulating job/workplace.

A pretty independent, production matters workplace. Smart, driven creative types will do very well and there are dozens who have been with an Agora division for a decade or longer.
Pros
wine and dine culture, lots of upward mobility, cool travel, cool offices...
Cons
pressure to put out great content that sells, cut-throat - wants results quickly and will replace fast...

Outstanding Place work - get ready to compete though!
Financial Writer (Former Employee) –  Delray Beach, FLMarch 29, 2015
Oxford Club/Agora is a great work environment, very entrepreneurial and you are truly encouraged to be engaged and productive. Productivity can be rewarded very handsomely at Agora.

Management from the top down spreads out the rewards. I heard everyone received an Ipad for Xmas and employee training as an expense doesn't bother them one bit.

Even the very high ups are approachable, friendly and always willing to help.

very profitable Co. and they don't watch their purse strings over silly stuff like most places in today's world - great combo! so expect to stay at 4 or 5 star hotels w/travel and eating out at very nice restaurants w/other cool coworkers.

Be prepared to work hard and compete. Although you are around a lot of creatives and Hipster types, don't be fooled. If they've been around there longer than a few years, there's a competitive drive burning inside them and if you don't produce - YOU WILL BE OUT - NO QUESTION!

This should be no surprise given the number of Libertarians within the organization. Free market equals opportunity for success but as many average to below avg. performers find out can be painful.
Pros
free thinkers, entrepreneurial, lavish with spending money
Cons
intensely competitive

Fun Place to Work, But No Job Security
Senior Copywriter (Former Employee) –  Baltimore, MDOctober 31, 2017
Laid back atmosphere with great coworkers. Job was interesting, but no job security. Training was good, with occasional trips to Florida for seminars.
Pros
Laid back atmosphere
Cons
Huge turnover, low pay.

Horrible management
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMay 9, 2017
It was a terrible experience working for the Oxford. They claim to care about their employees, but they don't. They are constantly preaching about how important it is not to speak negatively of coworkers, yet management was constantly gossiping and repeating confidential conversations. I have never felt more disrespected and undervalued as an employee. The managers harass their employees, and constantly speak down to their employees. Each day that I had to work, I would dread going there.

Best of All Possible Worlds
Financial Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Baltimore, MDAugust 3, 2016
It's a small company (less than 50 people) and the culture is very, very supportive. A great place to start and maybe grow a career.
