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

    Pros

    You get to develop your technical skills in terms of their machinery.

    Cons

    Interactions between departments is zero to none. And you are in the same office. Sometimes I think other departments were afraid to interact with the call centre representatives.

    Advice to Management

    Back up your workers because of the customers who call into the call centre absolutely live in a bubble.

    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.

    I worked at Dyson (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company vehicle, tools, workwear, pension.

    Cons

    As a Field Engineer, the early days were quite good 2000 - 2013. From 2014, the emphasis was on solving customer's issues with excellent service. From 2014 the role (in my opinion) became more focussed on selling. As a result, the job became more pressured, longer hours, more stress and the threat of disciplinary action if sales targets were not attained.

    Advice to Management

    This would be a pointless exercise.

    I have been working at Dyson full-time

    Pros

    Great campus, nice people, great opportunities, cool tech, fast decisions and actions

    Cons

    A lot of middle management screams of being promoted out of "last man standing"attitude as well as speed of growth. Looks like they are all being pushed out slowly though

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the values the company was built on and remember there are other companies out there that have had the same problems. Wrong thinking doesn't mean reinventing the wheel

    I worked at Dyson full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Every project would have some element or assemblies with different technologies, or different designs. This allows you to explore and compare differences between different mechanism/design to achieve a certain function.
    - There are quite some flexibility for you to explore how to study the problem and propose a solution.
    - Benefit/Welfare generally quite good.
    - Heavy emphasis on product performance

    Cons

    - Some manager might micro-manage you.
    - When there are request from the biggest boss, it would be top urgent.
    - Being a company with considerable size, there are some politics with upper management.

    Advice to Management

    - Appreciate the employee that is dedicated and promote internal progression.
