    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, very self-directed work. Lots of autonomy in the field, no micromanagment. Great work place for during school, and has lots different channels to potentially grow in.

    Cons

    Can't think of much for Dyson. Except Dyson Canada is fairly flat structure in terms of vertical movement. need to move to head office in England to vertically grow or go into other channels

    Advice to Management

    Great management here in Canada! Has a solid team of support, really don't have much things to say about the management other than keep up the good work. Dyson really live up to its name in terms of being a global company!

    I worked at Dyson full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment was great with negligible political tension. The brand is fantastic and the people are very high energy.

    Cons

    Management is too rooted in their own ideas to consider any ideas deviating from the workplace norm. The marketing department is lacking significantly, focusing their time on menial tasks rather than innovative forms of communication. The pay-grade is certainly disappointing for such a premium brand.

    Advice to Management

    Foster the development of new ideas and ingrain some core working values into the corporate environment - no one really knows what they're working for or what the bigger picture is.

    Flat organization, no upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    Better training programs, clear paths for promotions and growth

    I have been working at Dyson part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not commission based
    Sharing information with the public about Dyson Technology, if you like talking to people and are good at relationship selling this job is for you.
    Ability to make in a two days what you would make at many 5 day a week part time jobs
    401K with good match

    Cons

    Opportunity for advancement is limited, best mindset is to view this as a part time opportunity
    Bonus plan exists but rarely achieved, think of any bonuses received as perk
    Often very slow to provide supplies needed to be in compliance with dress code and theater set up

    Advice to Management

    Hire a coordinator to handle the needs of the demonstrators and get them the supplies they need in a timely manner. Allow Demonstrators to order their own supplies and then just have managers approve.

    Pros

    An Innovative, challenging and exciting place to work. Fantastic opportunities for those who want to advance their careers - there are few companies out there today that can offer you the type of opportunities Dyson can.

    On-site facilities for employees by far the best I have experienced and improving social and sports opportunities.

    Cons

    Rapidly expanding so you need to keep on your toes and be willing to change and adapt as the business requires.
