    I have been working at iRobot

    Pros

    People respect each other, the products are exciting.

    Cons

    The labs are poor, in my opinion, not enough bench space, instrumentation, materials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go into labs often, stop formalities such as surveys and trendy cliches such as "agile"
