    Great intern program, but obvious disorganization for levels above "intern"

    I worked at iRobot as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -great pay
    -flexible hours
    -great environment and culture
    -you get to spend your day surrounded by robots

    Cons

    -pretty obvious that a lot of the senior staff are just as directionless as the mid-level and entry level engineers.
    -you will not be hired (at all) for an entry level position unless you were previously (or currently) an intern. This was openly stated by management. You could be a valedictorian of your school, and the most they'll offer you is an internship if you haven't already had one with them.
    -very much a "self-starter" attitude at the company, when it comes to problem solving. If you identify a problem, then you should identify the solution, and then just tell the manager in charge of the project your idea - 9/10 they'll say "Good. Do that". This will get you noticed in all the right ways, but it creates an environment of "left hand not knowing what right is doing"
    -the separation between teams is understandable from a 'commercial espionage' stand point, but it hinders a lot of idea generation. You can really only seek out your team mates to bounce ideas off of to troubleshoot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone higher than associate is some kind of "Sr. Principal manager". I know they're just titles, but if your employees cannot clearly see the chain of command, then they cannot figure out who to do to for work or to see about the red tape in their way. Play with your management structure, because even from the perspective of an intern, it is obvious that the middle management is an organizational mess.
