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

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.

Friendly fast paced innovative
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

Extremely Stressful Environment
Customer Service Sales Advisor (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire28 March 2017
The company has changed, you have to make a sale or talk about sales in every single call, if you don't expect to be performances managed, if you don't hit the target if sales every month expect to be performances managed, they've made making commission harder so expect a low wage every month, unless your off the helpline it's not an enjoyable place to work, the attitude of the managers is if you don't think the job is right for you look for another one before you get sacked, the managers only care about sales and making sure they get their commission from the team's sales, I wouldn't advice anyone to work here, I've been here months used to enjoy it since everything has changed they don't care about you as long as they have sales, it's a hard selling job role over the telephone which is a difficult job.

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

A stressful experience
Copy database exec (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire15 January 2017
Within the 'creative' and marketing section there is definitely far too much expected of everyone at all times, these teams only attract the people with no family or life as this doesn't seem to be taken into account when working at Dyson. When you are continually told the person before you was working till 11pm most nights and seemed to expect the same of you, you're not going to retain someone looking for a work/life balance (as advised in the interview) . Not one bit of advice and time given to ensure correct training or mentoring was given to me, mostly because they simply didn't have the time this was one of the most stressful times I have had working in the last 10 years and because of this I have had anxiety issues with being new at subsequent work placements. I'm hoping not all departments at dyson is like this. Dyson also seems to have a reputation with recruiters I have since found out people stand to stay 1 year to get the name on the cv and leave,not good I had high hopes for this and I was completely dissapointed with the experience, Dyson please take notice of the reviews and do something about it.
Pros
Reasonably priced food in canteen
Cons
Long hours no overtime pay, too much workload, no mentoring of trainees

Written Communications Advisor (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire7 December 2016
great opportunites, Just have to prove your loyalty.

There are some issues with communication across the departments but the place overall is fun, decent salary and fairly flexible. Loyalty and hard work is genuinely rewarded.

Loss of weekends - but great fun!
Expert/Demonstrator (Former Employee) –  Cheltenham6 September 2016
It was every Saturday, Sunday, Bank Holiday Monday or Black Friday. Standing in a Currys PC World store, and getting customers to come over to the Dyson stand instead of other competitors vacuums. Dyson encouraged us to use a lot of theatre, so throwing flour onto the floor, and using the Dyson to put patterns and words in it- just to get attention over to you - or throwing cheerios on the floor and getting the customer to stop them into the carpet - it was a lot of fun.

It was also quite difficult, as you are getting a customer who may come in for a £99 Henry, to purchase a £200+ vacuum instead. Regardless of the power, or ease of use- a lot of customers just can't spend the money so it does mean your targets are hard to hit a lot of the time.

You're targeted on how many you sell, how many "premium" products you sell, how many accessories you sell, how many people you approach and talk to, and how many people you demonstrate a product to.
Pros
Every year there was a very fun conference, dress up nice, free 3 course meal, and lots of free alcohol!
Cons
You don't get to make plans on the weekend, so you watch as your friends and family go out without you!
