    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When an employee sends you a time sensitive email you should really respond before two weeks go by.

    Good environment, becoming very top-down

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in Cincinnati, OH (US)

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

    Pros

    The environment is good, no dress code, relaxed, accepting. No one looking over your shoulder, no one monitoring websites you visit (the company expressly doesn't care, as long as it doesn't affect your work). Many extra-work activities (chili cookoff, game competitions, fantasy sports leagues).

    Cons

    I'm not sure that the products they offer will retain their positions at the top of the market for long. The company has become very bureaucratic, many levels that decisions have to go through and a lot of time wasted doing it. Pay across the company is generally lower than other companies. And the ability to advance has significantly decreased over the last few years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The people who work here love doing it because of the office environment and the people, but you shouldn't assume that's all that your employees need to be happy. Every activity has an effect on productivity, and should be considered carefully. If you feel you have the right people, you can let them make decisions. The environment is why most people work here, but that won't keep your best assets forever.
