    I worked at Hobsons full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company evolving after reorganizing under new management and narrowing it's focus. Dedicated people in the lower ranks with plenty of collaboration.

    Cons

    Upper management unproven with unrealistic expectations of the market and sales cycles. Product development slow, marketing under resourced. Sales targets too high with incentives mostly unattainable.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let good people walk.

    Interview

    Several phone and WebEx interviews concluding with a presentation. Multiple people from different departments interviewed. Thought this was a great way to understand the company. Very well executed and made me feel confident about joining the company.
