Stressed, pressured, management only care about themselves.
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury9 March 2018
Awful place to work, too pressured, stupidly long hours, expected to work weekends, short lunch breaks, management only want to look after themselves, they are not helpful and will pick up on anything you do and put it in a negitive light, they will also talk down to you and only care about how much money they are getting in their pockets, commission based so great if you sell, not so great if you can’t, you will end up getting performance managed for it and then getting the sack anyway. Parking is a joke and you have to park at least 15 minutes away from the offices. Would never recommend this to be a enjoyable place to work. Such a shame as the technology is second to none.
Pros
Technology is great.
Cons
Long hours, unsupported management, conmission based, too pressured.

HR Manager (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury7 February 2018
Not a great place to work. If your face fits....great. If it doesn't then you have no chance. HR is shocking, Management is worse. Company moving at great pace but struggling to keep up. Thinks it's an Apple but it's nowhere near.
Pros
Great Products
Cons
Management, processes, pay, Hr

Great Company But......
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire26 January 2018
I had been working in Dyson Research for a few years. In general the company is good especially the top-level management and insight view to the future.

The main problem of this organisation, at this moment, is that level of management just above staff at fundamental layer and brown-nose culture at this layer is getting worse to allow some "ambitious" guys to acquire power during expansion of the company, not based on their skills.

I left the company and appreciate the chance given to learn and grow. I wish Dyson a bright future.
Pros
Top level management, Work life balance
Cons
brown-nose culture, politics and even bully

Good place to work
Advanced Design engineer (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire24 January 2018
The people are great. and the company is rapidly changing to create a company that gives the employees a great life, with on site gym, sports center classes and flexible working hours among some of the new changes being made.

The management structure and how decisions get made and why can be baffling sometimes and can be very frustrating but they are always trying to push forward and make decision to do so.
Pros
flex hours, on site gym and classes
Cons
in the middle on no where

Not for everyone
Sales Expert (Former Employee) –  Sheffield24 January 2018
I will start by saying the pay is AMAZING however if you are not a natural sales person and do not have tough skin when it comes to rejection this is not the job for you as the targets are hard to stick to if you do not literally talk to anyone and everyone!

You will be thrown in the deep end pretty much so you need to be able to work off your own initiative.

The management wasn't great as only had the regional manager looking after us and only really heard from them personally every few weeks which isn't great when you're newly starting out and are needing support.

The trips away with work are great and they book you into 4 star and 5 star hotels and pay for all the food.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Hard targets and not a lot of support from management

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

Iconic British Technology Company
Business Development Manager (Former Employee) –  Malmesbury, Wiltshire9 January 2018
Good company to work for but they could look after their staff better. Limited progression and very hierarchy based.
Salaries are also around 10-15% lower than the average for the relevant roles.

Fluid Dynamics Engineer - Advanced (Current Employee) –  Malmesbury31 December 2017
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. Environment always changing. Hectic mismanagment of projects at times. Typical office politics. Opaque advancement process.

Cons
Advancement process is opaque. Low pay for sector.

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

Energetic, Supportive, Positive work enviroment.
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.

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
