Employee input is essential and what this means is that you hear them not just ask for feedback. Managers need to distinguish between talented workers and brown nosers.

    Pros

    Hobsons is a great company with a strong product suite. The team is innovative, hard working and fun. I was particularly impressed with the international focus of the business as well as the employees philanthropic cause - building a new school every year in a different part of the world.

    Cons

    During my tenure, I would have liked to have seen faster development of the product suite. In general, my experience was very positive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    Pros

    The people here are great one of the only big highlights of working here

    Cons

    1) Low ball salaries. The HQ is based in Cincinnati but have offices in much more expensive areas- Arlington, VA and Oakland, CA. They base the salaries off of the Cincy market.
    2) Limited growth opportunities even though the company claims to be growing.
    3) They solicit feedback from their employees but when it is something Management doesn't agree with they label people as difficult and any limited growth ops are even fewer.
    4) Internal hiring is shady at times. Will post jobs on their intranet and the same day be at the interviewing stage. Most hiring managers don't extend the courtesy of keeping internal applicants up to date on where they are in the process.
    5) Tend to favor women and minorities in their hiring practices.
    6) Value sales and management above everyone else.
    7) Can be very clique-y depending on your department.
    8) Very youth oriented 20-30 year olds are the norm here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Way too many mandatory company meetings that don't pertain to most peoples work.
    As the old adage goes "Too many chiefs not enough Indians"
    Too focused on reorgs and acquiring new companies
    Many people believe management is out of touch with the regular worker
    I suggest management reviews themselves more critically as there are some individuals who need to move on.
