Where do I begin?

Product Manager (Current Employee)
Bedford, MA (US)

I have been working at iRobot full-time for more than a year

ProsPassionate people, true desire to "make a difference" and "change the world"

ConsMicromanagement 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 Senior ManagementTime to act on the poor employee survey results that are _consistently given_ an stop paying them lip service alone

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
