Pros

Vibrant, challenging environment with a problem-solving, positive attitude.
Excellent opportunities to learn new skills, progress and develop into new areas.
Trusted and encouraged to try new things but given guidance to achieve it when needed.
Friendly, supportive and relaxed environment. Big brother hasn't arrived here!
Fantastic social events including awesome Christmas parties, pub quizzes, walks, book club, competitions, lectures etc (all optional).
Great discounts.

Cons

A bit off the beaten track but only just off the m4, near swindon, chippenham, bristol, bath. Also lots of lift sharing opportunities which are widely respected and encouraged.
Systems can be playing catch up with the demands of Marketing and Engineering due to fast growth.

Advice to Management

Some more support for enforcing process improvements could be useful but I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel to fill the limit.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great effort in engineering. Practical and grounded with good business justification. Bright engineers at all levels, so I am proud to work in the company . Next to impossible to find a company in Singapore that deal with product development to such extent.

    Cons

    Too much focus on engineering sometimes. The company is very driven by engineering and this may not be good sometimes. Not enough support from other functions such as HR or IT.

    Advice to Management

    Other functions such as operations, IT or HR need to be developed well. Engineering will not be efficient without these support.

    We need more employer branding to let potential employee knows about the kind of work we do.
