I have been working at iRobot full-time (More than a year)

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

    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.

    I have been working at iRobot full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the coolest products in the world. Exceptionally talented workforce.

    Cons

    Going through lots of changes in personnel, org structure, strategy so lots of ambiguity. People on Glassdoor that don't like working here (please quit).

    Advice to Management

    Better foster innovation.
