    I have been working at iRobot full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Short commute. Can sometimes be very entertaining to listen to some of the conversations.

    Cons

    Rubbing elbows with the right people is more important than being good at your job. Management is always pushing the lower staff for higher levels of performance usually related to more hours not more brilliance. Constant reorganization and layoff. Morale is poor. No employee stock plan. Many managers tend to micromanage thus becoming an irritant. The place is like a post College hangout for some, leaving the work to others.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your people. Seems like the big shots come pump up the stock cash out and leave. Too much higher level turnover. Don't treat all the workers like they are expendible.
