I have been working at Hobsons full-time (More than 3 years)
The office environment was on a downhill slide for a few years, but has been improving since mid-2016.
Friendly Co-workers as long as you yourself are even slightly friendly
If socializing with your co-workers is your thing, then you're in luck! But if you prefer not to, then that is not a problem, either.
Some teams have regular opportunities for advancement
Product suite is good, not great.
Some poor business direction decisions have led the higher education division to change its focus, and as a result, the entire group was re-org'd a few times. Things seem to be settling down now, however.
The re-orgs do get a little old. Some teams have a lot of stability, others less so.

Advice to Management
It likely doesn't need to be said at this point, but please keep the company on a steady course as it relates to the products.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hobsons (Arlington, VA) in January 2017.
There were two phone interviews (one phone screen with recruiter, and another with the hiring manager), coding challenge, then a face to face interview. I never made it to the face to face interview because I didn't meet their standards with the coding challenge. The recruiter and the hiring manager were very friendly, and didn't ask many technical questions.
