    I worked at Dimplex North America full-time

    Pros

    - You will learn a lot very quickly, unfortunately with no guidance or proper training material - RRSP employer contribution

    Cons

    - Workload is unrealistic, they need to hire more employees - The "culture" is not positive, people either openly dislike the company and are actively searching for a new job, feel stuck as they've been with the company so long and are riding it out until retirement, or in a bubble of ignorance - Information is greatly silo'd depending on department - Blame for issues and failures is passed around, even to the point...

    I worked at Dimplex North America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company is growing, room for growth

    Cons

    Nobody talks to each other, the workload is larger than one person can possibly achieve. Management is the only positions that are paid properly but also the most disposable. Firing appears to happen weekly if not biweekly and there is only 100 employees!

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to employee's in an effort to motivate them.

    I worked at Dimplex North America

    Pros

    None, it is runned by an old school culture and mentality if you enjoy this type of environment. Discount on products.

    Cons

    Bad management, politics, staff are afraid to speak up and high turnover. Watch your back at all times. This is not a good environment for millenials.

    Advice to Management

    Hire millenials

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Dimplex North America full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Products and people are fantastic. Culture has seen a vast improvement over previous years. Company is headed in the right direction. New CEO seems to be the right choice for the position. Opportunity for career growth is there if you ask for it and work for it

    Cons

    Salary could be a bit better. Better communication between depts. is lacking. Not all depts. seem to have the same strategy for the growth of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage better accountability to all employees. More inter-departmental team work and collaboration is required.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Dimplex North America full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People are amazing, good benefits, Great atmosphere, Great Products. Great discounts,

    Cons

    no communication between departments, no team environment, lack of communication with management, lots of jobs lost, rather department success rather than a company success. Hard to advance to another department especially when when you are an asset to the current department (rather lose you to another company than within the company)

    Advice to Management

    Denis was a great leader despite what rumors went around ... he was very motivating and positive!

        Good benefit, discount fireplaces for employees

        The company is lost. Management doesm't respect and value employees. Management cares report to board much more than business.
