    I worked at Hobsons full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Opportunity to improve your skills
    - Work with talent, learn from them
    - Solve challenges, do work that matters
    - Plenty of PTO

    Cons

    - too much shuffling of people (high turnover, frequent layoffs)
    - disconnect between top and bottom (too many false positives when it comes to evaluating the business)
    - more work, less life balance
    - need to wear many, many hats
    - business first, employee third

    Advice to Management

    - invest in your employees
    - revamp your products
    - try not laying off anybody for at least 6 months
    - repeat the above until your Glassdoor reviews come close to 4 stars
    - stop writing fake reviews, it's sad

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hobsons (Arlington, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The posting was on craigslist. I sent my resume, got an email back saying saying give me three time slots for three different days. from one the Manager, I emailed right back with the days and time. Never heard from him, after 4 days I get an email saying sorry, I was busy can you give me some days and time again. I emailed back. got a phone interview next day. Interview was nice simple. I got a call back the next day for onsite interview. 4 people interviewed me very nice people. One of the manager said we all like you that is never heard back from them again. I emailed the manager back, he said give me two we will extend and offer, that is it never heard back.
