Motivated by recent experiments observing self-organization of Bose--Einstein condensates in optical cavities we investigate the collective dynamics of the associated non-equilibrium Dicke model. We find a rich phase diagram including distinct superradiant fixed points, coexistence phases, and regimes of persistent oscillations. We explore the intrinsic timescales for observing these novel phases and discuss the implications for finite duration experiments.
