    I worked at iRobot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and team. The iRobot team is great to work in. Very collaborative and fun. There is always tons of work, but luckily the work is interesting and challenging! The people are grade A professionals!

    Cons

    Sometimes work can stack up and everything is a priority. Even though management works on this, it is still a challenge.
