    I have been working at Dyson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Products are fun and innovative. Many great people: talented and interesting. UK campus is a great physical space. Good work/life balance in many teams. Benefits/compensation on par with market.

    Cons

    Redundancies made in RDD appeared arbitrary and opaque. Projects have lost critical staff and will cause big delays and headaches. Fantastic engineers have gone. Talent attracts talent, so this could be a further downward spiral. Undermines talk of staff being key to Dyson’s success, of staff wellbeing and of high performance culture. Much goodwill and patience has now gone. A sorry state of affairs for everyone, given the potential and willingness before. Management are gutting the soul that makes Dyson unique. Job security is in question: why work hard when good hardworking people lost their jobs on the spot? What reassurance does that give? Like many, I really want to be positive and optimistic, but I am struggling.

    I have been working at Dyson full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great products, smart and inspiring colleagues. Plenty of opportunities to learn and develop skills. Quite good training options.

    Cons

    Chaotic and poor decision making. Very poor work life balance. Very stressful and fast paced work environment. Heartless redundancies without any consideration for people who spent years contributing to great products. Disappointing management.

    I have been working at Dyson full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good facilities on site, training, chance to work on multiple types of projects and stages of the design process.

    Cons

    Hard work is taken for granted. Too much middle management capitalising on the successes of others. Different departments have different approaches to flexible working.

    I worked at Dyson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very interesting organisation to work for. As a non-engineer you can gain quick, commercial experience if you're able to keep up with the pace. Highly commercial business, working with very talented colleagues across the business.

    Cons

    Sink or swim environment. The focus is very much on the development and investment of the engineers. It can be challenging for those outside of that talent bubble.

    I have been working at Dyson full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    employees work so hard, harder than anywhere worked before. There used to be such pride in saying you worked for Dyson.. their service.. their technology... thier ethos. They attract such amazing young talent, like .. super.

    Cons

    Following on from the pros... iy has changed. The pride you had for working turned to shame in away, and we lose all the good young talent. It has been one negative news story after another for the past 4-5 years. Dyson comms need to realise that, the nature of the company of Dyson, means each news story affects everyone of their employees ...over diner with their families, in the pub with their friends, over the fence with neighbours. Dyson talks of its futuristic tech.. and yes the tech and development is brilliant.. and thats credit to the engineers; you people are just wow! Also adding to that, whilst Dyson may "not do marketing" the marketing/commercial team are mindblowing... have you seen the campaigns??! But as a company we are not futuristic... or even present... or even the 1990/2000s. You must be "seen" to be doing work... i.e. pretend to do work, not actually do work (a big difference!). WFH is a forced option due to covid (ironic since james came up with the vacuum in his garage)... and now apparently the reason for projects delays (if senior management are reading... in all my years never has a project been on time as the times are politically promised but delivered in real time. Covid and WFH has not added to this. If anything cross functional teams are working better thanks to TECHNOLOGY! ) Finally, people "disappear" at dyson ... whilst those disappearing are looked after, those left are left anxious and insecure and thus work hard in an atmosphere of fear.. this is a short term model... perhaps this suits dysons aims. Its time to become sustainable not cling to models of the past. If anyone can do this you can Dyson. So... do it. Become a Technology company.. as in, an actual one. Forward thinking, seeing the value of people. I believe you can.
