Do Not Care About Staff and Lots of Politics
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire17 January 2018
Its a stressed place to work for. Sometimes you cannot focus on/enjoy your technical work as lots of politics around and you have to watch out people doing relationships (flatter) with their manager to promote themselves and depress you. so your life in the working place may be difficult.

Working place culture is getting worse and worse over past years accompany with its expansion. Not recommended.
Pros
Good work/life balance
Cons
Poor work place culture

Good work-life balance. 8 hours and then sprint home. Flexible working hours. Funds available for training. Plenty of interesting and challenging work. Great food options at lunch. Onsite gym.

Constantly evolving and creating opportunity for personal improvement
Logistics analyst (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire22 December 2017
Dyson is far from conventional, but its such a great company to work for. in an economy where people are striving for a little bit of growth, Dyson have grown double digits every year in 25 years.

I have been at Dyson as a analyst for 2.5 years now, and have now received my first promotion. Some people will say that advancement is scarce and hard to obtain, but in truth we are responsible for our own advancement.

if you are the type of person that will through your job description in your managers face when asked to do a little extra then of course you wont advance.

However, if you have the right mindset, a good set of skills and are able to adapt and learn quickly, then this place is an oasis of opportunity. since joining i have travelled the globe, met new people, grown my skill set and all of this is off my own back. it helps that i have a very good manager and she is very supportive if you are willing to work hard and show commitment.

nothing is handed to you on a plate in this world but if you show the right determination, the world really is what you make of it at Dyson.

I look forward to a very long career at Dyson.
these are very exciting times.

I would recommend to any one looking to develop a career to seriously consider the prospects that can be had at Dyson.


Just to add, i have no degree, no amazing education. i am self taught in Excel and VBA. and i have a very hands on approach to any opportunity.
Pros
onsite free Gym, great food, great people, great opportunities
Cons
not for everyone. not the best at compensating salaries

Dyson Expert (Former Employee) –  Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria13 December 2017
I loved working for Dyson a typical day was spent conversing with customers, performing demonstrations and promoting Dyson products. I learnt a lot about the importance of innovation, never giving up, learning from mistakes and putting other people first. Management was always very supportive and allowed a lot of self reliance as long as sales targets were met. The hardest part of the job was meeting the sales targets each week as they simply increased no matter how well I had done previously. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping customers solve issues.
Pros
The amount of trust and flexibilty to operate
Cons
Long hours, no weekends off.

Astonishing Creativity and Energy
Information Management Policy Manager (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire29 November 2017
A brief but amazing experience where, at last, it was agreed i was not a good fit. Mine has been a professional experience around the timed delivery of projects. With a substantial sensitivity around program and cost while relinquishing nothing in terms of quality and correctness. That's not to say that Dyson were anything other than fully committed to quality and correctness. Their understanding of time and resource need to 'up their game' in terms of information gathering early in project lifecycle not fully understood with a step change mentality very much out of alignment with commitments to deliver by certain dates and regulatory compliance.
Pros
Ethos
Cons
Hierarchy infrastructure very difficult to understand

Design Engineer (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire25 October 2017
Left because advancement is messed up. Some roles fall nicely and a engineer can be a senior in 5 years other situations you can be lucky to get to advanced engineer in that time.

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

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.
