I worked at Hobsons full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The benefits and culture, especially in the DC-office, are spectacular. Co-workers actually participate in charity drives and company-sponsored activities. The company throws an annual strategy weekend and black-tie gala, putting everyone up at a hotel.

Cons

The company is growing quickly, and a lot of that growth is through acquisition. It can be challenging for some managers to adjust to their new roles.

    Pros

    Low pressure. Higher ed industry - so most of the time you feel like you are working with clients who mean well.

    Cons

    There is zero opportunity for growth and this is the least challenged I have ever been in my career. The managers are immature and most would not survive in a real company setting. It's child's play. If you are over 25, you will hate this place.

    I have been working at Hobsons full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are okay to work with

    Cons

    Engineering management in Arlington is extremely immature. In fact I can go to the length of saying that there are discriminatory practices (based on race and ethnicity). Everyone knows this, however as you know that the brunt of it is faced by only a few. Good people left the company because of such practices

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't know what to say as you wouldn't fire the middle management and they will continue effing up the company in time
