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.

    Pros

    Good for grads and young Engineers Lots to learn quickly. Good facilities and funding throughout However once you have filled your knowledge requirements. Leave
    Trying very hard to improve CEO driving change however his team can’t pull it off.

    Cons

    Poor structure, barriers to getting things done at every point. Great examples of how not to do things.
    Teams are not aligned. Projects never meet the desired label of maturity. Start up teams always leaving work to be done for the next. Big gaps in development. Over the wall mentality. Very poor consideration of design, test and plan. Program management is non existent

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at the structure.
    Growth is constant pull in people with real industry experience in product development
    Still so much potential to get back to being great
    Being cash rich is making dyson lazy tighten up and get 20% more professional.
