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

    Pros

    Good benefits, some interesting people, and projects, mostly a good environment. no funding shortages if you needed anything.

    Cons

    Some people were hard to be around and they made you feel like you were walking on eggshells. Workloads can be unevenly distributed as many people work much harder than others and some people mingle and don't seem to produce much of anything besides co2.
    In my situation, I was overloaded and was in need of some adjustments to my environment. I approached my so called manager to address some of these issues, I discussed things in a cogent manner. He pretended to care and faked some assistance to eat up the period until my next review when he torpedoed my performance review, where previously I was very well regarded. Shortly thereafter I resigned.

    This manager has since been lowered an engineering functionary.

    Advice to Management

    Vette your manager more appropriately.
