Good for someone who has never had a job or any office experience, otherwise a waste of time

I worked at Hanover Research full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

If you've never worked in an office, had an internship, or didn't get much of an education, you'd fit right in. It's a fun environment with young people, but that's also a major con.

Cons

Because of the lack of management, so much relies on people under 30 who have no management skills and don't know how to effectively execute work or communicate. The best learning environment for a young professional is to have a mix of staff, with older, more experienced staff leading the way.

They're so desperate for new staff because of turnover that they shell out tons of $$$ on recruiting forms.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do your job - manage. Get a decent CEO and active Board of Directors.

    I have been working at Hanover Research

    Pros

    I am a fairly new employee at Hanover, so I don't have any perspective on how it is to work here long-term. I am very satisfied with my experience so far. I like learning in-depth on topics which are of interest to me (I'm very interested in education) and learning about a new topic every week or so. People are nice. I feel supported.

    Cons

    It can be hard to write lengthy papers in a short amount of time. I sometimes worry that I'm not doing as good of a job as I could be, or as good as others are doing.
