Good benefits and work-life balance

Cons

Lack of collaborative work creates quiet, isolating work atmosphere
Expectations and feedback are not often provided, leaving newer researchers in the dark

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'd recommend that management try to gather more input from staff in the decision process as much as possible. Expectations and feedback can be communicated more often and more clearly, particularly for newer staff.

    I have been working at Hanover Research

    Pros

    Professional growth
    Team cohesion
    Excellent rewards for hard work
    Ability for internal advancement
    Hard-working, yet relaxed culture
    Amazing research capabilities
    Opportunity to be apart of a rapidly growing, young company
    Encouragement of employee input/ideas
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Segregation between research and development staff
    Lack of transparency between upper management and associate-level employees
    No concrete, established advancement track (although there are many opportunities)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest to promote more professional interaction between research and development employees. This would help both sides to have a better understanding of the excellent work Hanover has to offer, which will ultimately help Development sell and Research continue outputting great projects. Also, it would be a good idea to establish more of a downward communication itinerary between executives and associate level employees.
