    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Dyson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really good health benefits. Parking in same building as the Chicago office, along with parking benefits. If you choose to take the train or bus, the building does offer a timely shuttle. Also have an in office barista.
    Your coworkers are awesome as there is a cheerful spirit and camaraderie among your peers and managers. Pretty fun in office and out of office events as teams will coordinate either a lunch or after hours meet.

    Cons

    Some top talent people are both unappreciated and under-utilized. Meaning that those who are hard workers and perform well beyond their capacity are often overlooked; those who can offer more than what they are given, are often not given more responsibilities even though they are asking for more.
    The company only seems to celebrate teams that generate money for the company. There are other teams that so stuff for the company such as protect IP, improve facilities, improve technology, change the culture, etc. but are never publicly thanked unless that employee generates more business. In turn, much promotions and raises occur to employees in sales, marketing, and logistics; rarely do hear about promotions in HR, IT, PR, or Legal.
    There is a lack of communication and transparency between leadership and the rest of the office. Monthly office wide meetings celebrate and recap previous month happenings without any mention of what is upcoming and what the bigger plan is. Many changes happen from IT concerning office technology, and you’re made aware of these changes less than 24 hours ahead of time.

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management as they do not listen to their employees.
    Advice to current employees: network and stay connected to top talent people. Keep this steady (and rather big) paycheck till a better company wants you and wants to promote your career.
    Advice to future employees: negotiate for more money and accept; but continue to look for a better employer.

    Pros

    This company is always giving to their employees! Food, fun, and incentives.

    Cons

    Not good support! Faulty scorecard system that effects bonuses. No drug test. A little too loud and unprofessional at times. Needs better dress code. Terrible unboarding for training.

    Advice to Management

    Actually make a plan where people get paid the right way.

    I have been working at Dyson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, bonuses, pay, contests, work from home

    Cons

    management doesn't support and is rarely reachable but always has time to complain and scrutinize your time sheet

    Advice to Management

    offer better support to your teams instead of only contacting them to complain and criticize, follow through with things you offer to support us better instead of mentioning them and never talking about them again, better training.

    I have been working at Dyson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    * State-of-the-Art office space with lots of amenities
    * Good Work/Life Balance
    * Growing company with a vision for the future
    * I feel rewarded for my hard work
    * Engaging work that makes me feel valued
    * Opportunities for growth - managers are committed to building up their employees and helping them to grow in their career
    * Good benefits and plenty of Paid Time Off
    * Business-casual work environment
    * Discounts on Dyson products

    Cons

    * Lower-than-average pay compared to my peers in similar positions at other companies in the Chicago area
    * Employees tend to stick to themselves/their work friends - it can be hard to get to know your coworkers as a new employee, outside of work events
    * Office in Fulton Market can be hard to get to via public transit if you don't live near the Green or Pink L Lines - though Dyson has its own shuttle to the Blue Line
    * Onboarding process is very "sink or swim" - I had to figure out a lot of things on my own or by making mistakes that could have easily been avoided by better training upfront

    Advice to Management

    * Pay your starters a more competitive salary to make working at Dyson a more rewarding and engaging experience
    * Encourage your team supervisors to develop better training resources for new employees to make the transition process less daunting
