    I have been working at iRobot full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flex time is available and they start you out with three weeks vacation. The health benefits are standard with employee contribution. Given the necessary tools to accomplish the job. The people are very nice.

    Cons

    There seems to be a general discontent of the management by a lot of the people. There is a feeling of an unstable work environment due the a regular dose of layoffs and firings. Can be a loud work environment with robots running around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Broaden the product category to include more than vacuums and military robots
