    I worked at iRobot full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of Interesting work, lots of robots running around, diverse problems to work on, ranging from embedded code and drivers to applications. The research group gets into some very interesting projects.. Fun company culture, and good work life balance. They genuinely care about the employees.

    Cons

    G&I division depends on government funding, which can sometimes be slow or problematic.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify to more industry products.

    Pros

    Passionate people, true desire to "make a difference" and "change the world"

    Cons

    Micromanagement at all levels; no cohesive sense of purpose (every man/woman/child for themselves); lost ability to innovate (just look at the latest acquisition and press surrounding it); cronyism

    Advice to Management

    Time to act on the poor employee survey results that are _consistently given_ an stop paying them lip service alone
