    Great people, poor career mobility and lack of company adaptability lend to stagnation in an ever-expanding industry.

    I have been working at Hobbico full-time (more than an year)


    Colleagues become family. Variety of products to be had with employee discount. Though cheesy, often have small incentive lunches provided by the company and other activities to pass the time.


    Upward mobility is difficult as many of the upper and middle management refuse to be dethroned by new ideals and continue to hold to philosophies that drag them down in the world market for hobby products. In my department there is a large degree of churn (high level of turnover) due to the complexity of the job and lack of basic financial hygiene; compensation is not equal to the level of technical aptitude required for the job. Many more points may be addressed, but I refrain from acknowledging them here, this is just a taste.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has been posed to me on several occasions, by my superiors mostly, that there is no room for growth in this company because 'we do things the way we know and do not consider NEW to be an option.' Many of the upper echelon have remained far too long--retire already! Please realize that streamlining logistics and managing a tighter supply chain will provide a world of difference. To continue with a broken process and disjointed system because it is comfortable/known is asinine.
