Hiring while Laying Off

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at iRobot full-time

ProsThe company just merged and before, it was great.
The people are very friendly and great.
Work life balance is good and half day Fridays during the summer is definitely very good for employees.
Location is very good, close to route 3 and 128.

ConsThere has been a lot of layoff due to cost cutting. While it is understandeable to reduce cost, that does not mean you hire people at the same time. Just 2 days ago, 6 positions opened up while there are people still leaving due to layoffs.
At the same time, people are laid off and getting replaced by people fresh out of college. People who have been laid off have been told to train these new fresh out of college who are probably paid a fraction of the person who got laid off.

Advice to Senior ManagementWatch the company morale. There has been a serious downturn recently in terms of morale.
On the non business side, management is great(great to talk to, socialize with). However, their business decisions are baffling.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
