    I have been working at Hanover Insurance full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The culture is awesome & the people are what make it such a great place to work. The benefits are very decent, with reasonable vacation time, paid holidays, family support, sick time, etc. You can't beat the 100% 401K match either because there aren't too many companies out there that match 100%. There is also lots of room for growth in various departments within the company.

    Cons

    It is hard for some to advance their career here because they feel "stuck" in their department. I haven't experienced this myself, but have heard it from others. Longtime & dedicated employees should have the same treatment & advancement opportunities that are given to the people in our Future Leaders Program (FLP). The FLP program is great, but it's for recent college grads with little to no experience in the corporate world. We should be giving our tenured employees the same tools for success that we do our FLP's. In the long run it will benefit Hanover to up-skill our seasoned employees since they are the dedicated ones. I believe many (not all) FLP's end up leaving the company after finishing their contract & then they just end up using their new skills learned @ Hanover elsewhere. It's a great program, but I think Hanover should cater to their committed employees a little more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This comment is specifically for upper management. Please choose your management staff a little more wisely because these people represent our company & support many of our entry-level employees. A management role should be earned & not just handed out. We need to ensure our managers know the work & procedures for the employees they directly support. How can you manage someone effectively if you don't understand what they do? I'd like to see more managers with background experience relevant to the people they support directly.
