    I worked at Hanover Insurance

    Pros

    - Pay is average for a recent graduate
    - Good benefits
        - 6% match on 401k from start date
    - Easy to request time off
    - Don't have to work hard
    - Opportunities if you drink the kool aid and play office politics
    - Additional training encouraged
    - Hanover will pay for AINS testing (INS 21, 22 & 23) and CBA training
    - Work week is under 40 hours
    - Visibility and opportunity to work with senior management

    Cons

    - Howell location
        - The office leans heavily to the right
        - Organization does not have much culture besides the political views
    - Lack of opportunities for college graduates (The Worcester location has more opportunity)
    - Heavy loads of "paper pushing"
        - Very boring, feels like you are working for 10 hours not 8
        - You will be asked to work OT on worthless tasks
    - Lack of advanced degrees in senior management
    - Have to play politics and drink the kool aid to advance
    - Year end reviews lack constructive criticism
    - The AINS tests are worthless if you do not plan on staying in the insurance industry
    - Cafeteria lacks options and does not provide enough food (e.g. sandwich will only have one piece of ham, turkey, etc.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend treating your employees fairly and give positive as well as negative feedback to encourage employee growth for the benefit of both employee and company.
