It is well known that non-compensating calorimeters, such as the ones used in the general purpose experiments at the Tevatron and the LHC, offer particular problems for correctly reconstructing the energy deposited by single hadrons and jets. In this talk, I will review these problems, discuss the remedies usually employed, and possible alternatives. I also briefly review the options for hadron calorimetry at a future Lepton Collider, where jet spectroscopy is expected to become a major experimental tool.
