    I worked at iRobot as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    They are super great company to work for. Very inclusive and made me feel apart of the team. The work you do is always a significant contribution, but they provide lots of support.

    Cons

    The only Con is that they are located in Bedford and as a young person I was living closer to the Boston area and the commute can be a pain.

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

    Pros

    Growing company that maintains a small company feel. Really is a fantastic environment, perfect for the work that is being done. Fun and fast-paced, I have truly enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be difficult at times, but company makes a noticeable effort to make up for it through activities/retreats/etc and always appreciates the work being put in.

    Advice to Management

    Becoming more accessible is always a good place to start. Could benefit from more management interaction on day-to-day basis.
