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

    Pros

    Dyson encourage their employees to provide feedback, not only this, they listen to it as well. Dyson have expectations of their employees, they set the bar high and that keeps the job interesting.

    Cons

    The position i fulfill requires me to work remotely and that doesn't suit everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Dynamic, exciting, challenging, R&D Focus

    Cons

    Conflicting direction and average pay

    Advice to Management

    Empower your reports and trust them to define and own their direction choices....coach, guide and support. Avoid top down direction and weed out micro-management. Assess your middle managers in RDD for their ability to be good managers, not just technical authorities (they both matter!)

    I have been working at Dyson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing people.
    Progressive products- there are always new exciting things coming around the corner.
    Opportunities if you are hungry and can over-deliver/ get exposure to Snr management.

    Cons

    Cronic understaffing in support functions (I.e. Group non finance or non engineering roles). I don’t see my colleagues in RDD working regular 12 hour days.
    Does not suit all. You have to love change, developing process and a bit of chaos.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO should shake things up.
    Looking forward to a change in culture.

    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.

    A progressive company and there is always an appetite to support your ideas of improvement

    Increasing work load is not accompanied with increasing resources.

    Please align business growth rate with the number of employees' growth rate to achieve an overall sustainable growth.
