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

Pros

Casual atmosphere. Managers don't micro manage. Flexible work schedule. Interesting environment.

Cons

Management out of touch and don't pull their weight. Lower level employees do all the work and get no recognition. If there is an issue managers DO NOT give employee a chance to defend themselves. Don't trust fellow employees. Layoffs not based on job performance.

Advice to Management

Appreciate and reward lower level employees. Your way is not the only way. Base layoffs on job performance not connections.
