      Interesting company

      Pros

      Positive team. Good leadership. United on wanting to innovate and make things better.

      Cons

      Lots of disorganization in this particular team. Slightly understaffed, and lots of time wasted working with teams with poor communication. Weird slack communication where people chat the team that they are getting the door and will be away for 3 minutes. Company tells you to use your PTO on their holiday shutdown many times, but the vacation time given to new employees does not cover. Feels slightly unethical and inconsiderate to tell you to use already limited PTO on their decision to shut down.

      Pros

      Folks performing "boots on the ground" tasks are great

      Cons

      Pay isn't great Hard work isn't acknowledged The company's clearly trying to figure out what comes next but feels like they're grasping at straws Medical insurance blows if you're not in Massachusetts Work/life balance not respected; get ready to put in a bunch of unpaid overtime if you work here Weirdly political: Senior leadership has been throwing people under the bus during the recent Salesforce transition

      Great work! Poor Management, Poor Compensation

      Pros

      The work is great. For ML team, the work is cutting edge and has a lot of potential to be industry benchmark in future.

      Cons

      - They don't care if the manager/tech lead has skills to be in that position. - Used to be an open environment and thoughts/ concerns herd. Now it's like the boss is always right. No consideration for employee ideas and thoughts. - Overworked with messages flowing on weekends. - Poor compensation. 30% less than average for my role in Boston area.

      The people who actually do the work and get things done are great.

      Management doesn’t care Pay is terrible compared to other companies in industry and area No work life balance, expected online 24/7 Company seems to be losing focus No way to move forward and get promotions Raises and bonuses are a joke, non existent, even with record profits Ultimately iRobot proves every day that you are disposable.
