I worked at Dyson as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Great work environment, flexibility, strong support system in place if you choose to take advantage of it, opportunity to do really meaningful work

Cons

really long walk to bathroom (seems dumb, but true), no offices so you must be willing to be on guard about the things you say since everyone might overhear, very competitive work environment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more interdepartmental cooperation and communication might help increase productivity and decrease avoidable stress

    I worked at Dyson full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great for a resume to work for an innovative company.

    Cons

    Most profit is returned to R&D rather than improving workplace processes and technology which makes everyone's job very difficult. Little room for promotions since they like to hire from outside the company and no training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new HR team

    I have been working at Dyson full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Casual office atmosphere. Most people there are very nice but you can walk by the same faces for years and barely get a "good morning" when given.

    Cons

    Internal technoloy is a joke. The company's biggest priority is creating new products not improving the processes, making your job harder that it should be.There's not room for advancement unless you befriend the right people. It's not what you know, but who you know. There is a great feel of separation between departments. The greater good of the customer is not a priority as everyone does more finger pointing verses resolving issues. The HR department is a joke and not there for the employees. There is always an uneasy feeling because the turn over rate is high and a position will be removed and renamed because they descided to "go in a new direction" so no one is safe. Your concerns are never addressed and in the end you find you were lied to from the beginning. I do not feel valued or respected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest. Show your employees they are valued by actually listening and improving. Develope and promote from within.
