Dyson Worklife
Property Manager (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire18 October 2017
Working in Dyson is full on from the moment you walk through the door. Its a dynamic company that is always evolving.

Some practices are challenging.

The senior management are visible and constantly around the HQ site.

The culture is that of an engineering company and has a relaxed but demanding atmosphere.

The role was new so starting up a whole new role has been challenging and not without some barriers.

The camaraderie is ever present in trying to get the job done.
Pros
On site subsidised cafe/restaurant, discounts on Dyson products, health and dental cover
Cons
Long unrewarded working hours, expectation to do the same

Great company to work for!
Customer Service Advisor/Sales (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire5 October 2017
Friendly staff and management, easy to get along with everyone, most management was approachable. Can be very relaxed at times but also very busy at others. A company that looks after their staff and an amazing HQ building to work in, with lots of benefits ei. onsite cafe, gym, discounts with local businesses. Losts of commission to earn on a monthly basis so rate of pay is quite reasonable with lots of holiday.
Pros
Relaxed but can be fast paced
Cons
Can get very busy at times

Dyson great comapny to work for
I.T Assistant (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury14 September 2017
Just awesome, they used to allow people that had the will to do the Job and they gave them the chance and training.. No one was shouted at and everyone admitted there mistakes and worked toward s a resolutions rather than victimising the person who made the mistake.

Great please to work for before the new director turned up who cancelled the subscription to Antivirus on the mail gateway. I stressed the importance of Antivirus but was shut down and had to fine a way to protect the mail gateway. old trick in the book. downloaded the demo software every month, removing registry keys so that we would get 30 days of virus protection on the mail gateway.

Lessons learn there, own sword n all.
Pros
Good company to work for

Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  malsmesbury wiltshire15 June 2017
Working under too much pressure day in day out, with no room error, which means that currying the work mentality home. As a contact centre you would imagine how much complains you get every day which most time can get to you, but as its always said the customer is always right.
Pros
Bonus pay for excellent performance
Cons
Longer hours on the phones

Underwhelming, disappointing
HR Business Partner (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire9 June 2017
Don't join here expecting it to be like Google or Apple. It's nothing like this, experiencing growing pains yet not keen to admit it, Dyson's turnover is known to be high and they proudly boast how they're marmite and not for everyone. What they mean is they have retention problems they don't care about it or think it's important to address as there are a steady stream of people who will keep coming through the door.

Induction is weak then your turfed out into the business and expected to work out what you should be doing. No structure, limited process, this is chaos masked as entrepreneurial behaviour.

Office is lovely and the campus is a great place to work, James is visionary and the stuff he is doing on the uni campus is fantastic, just a shame that there is such poor infrastructure.

From a HR perspective Dyson are very behind the times, not cutting edge or leading in anyway so you won't be able to gain experiences to further your career although other empoiyers do assume that because you''very worked at Dyson you must have something about you. A really underwhelming experience.
Pros
Free parking
Cons
All of it nearly! Behind the times HR, uninterested in employee engagement

Customer Service Advisor (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire30 May 2017
Dyson is a fun place to work, it is relatively laid back for an indiviual providing you are hitting your targets. if youre not hitting targets however it can put a bit of pressure on you. Very much a casual office culture.

Executive Assistant (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire18 May 2017
This is a corporate company so the pace is as you expect for a global organisation.
Dyson campus feel is awsome
Gym and yoga on site
They accept people work long hours and try to give people all it needs on site...
If the culture in your workplace is to worklong hours you have to be the person to stand tall and challenge it. I did it at Wickes and it can be done. so rather than complain about it - change it.
Pros
Canteen. Gym. Culture. Social
Cons
middle of no where

Demonstrator
Demonstrator (Current Employee) –  West Midlands10 May 2017
Used to be better, it seems as they get bigger it focuses less on its Demonstrators staff.
Less incentives & Less benefits.
Impossible targets to acheive.
They need to change this, need to Reward & Recognise staff etc.. Its just robotic conduct.
Its bonuses & commission is near non existant due exuberant targets.
If they staff feel rewarded for their scheivements the Sales will go Up automatically !!
Hence time to move on, looking for Greener pastures where i'm valued more & have opp: to progress !
Pros
None anymore
Cons
No rewards or Recognition

Awful place to work
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire28 January 2017
The worst management structure I have ever experienced in my 20 year career - nasty, vindictive and bullying. They claim to be an innovative company, but if you dare challenge their poor working practices, you won't last long.

They try too hard to be something they're not - Google or Apple.

The key management staff have progressed from engineers, but their management style remains back in the 80's, where intimidation is the main tool - they even have a 'watch list' of people they want to get rid of!

I could never recommend anything about such an awful company.
Pros
None
Cons
Poor management, no leadership, bullying culture
