    There is a great community atmosphere in the office and the resources to design and build on ideas is incredible. Very few negative people, it's a very positive atmosphere. No engineering dinosaurs!

    I worked at Dyson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    On site gym, flexible working hours, on job training

    Cons

    Many of the management team have been at the company 20 years +, they have filled these managements positions due to the time working there and not that they're competent with people (many are technically skilled but have moved onto management positions). The human resources team were no better, I was made to feel like a gear in a cog, that was easily replaceable. I tried for over 2 years to get my salary recognised to the industry average, and I was given all manner of excuses (including my competency) This all led to me leaving the company with mental health issues, as I began questioning my self daily as I had no recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Start evaluating your staff and your selves. What competencys do you have? What of your staff are good at talking to people? Ultimately this is all easy stuff to do, and theres lots of literature out there on how to manage and recognises staff. So why is it not being done?

    They let you put your own flair to their 'winning sales' method

    Can sometimes be put in bad stores with other sales reps for example 'Shark' or 'Vax'. This makes it harder to attain your goals and bonuses.

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

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging work, good people who are willing to go the extra mile

    Cons

    The company has grown so fast that it's completely lost what made it unique. No real career progression, no reward for long term service. Becoming a very top heavy company with too many opinions so it's difficult to get anything done. Starting to employ lots of so called industry experts who have no interest in developing innovative projects.

    Poor salaries vs market

    Lots of politics....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people survey and long term employees. Go back to what made this company great. Small, dedicated focus teams with a clear direction.
