The Lazy Need Not Apply

Senior Marketing Associate (Current Employee)

ProsThis company is experiencing fast growth, which means busy people and major opportunities for employees. We're about to break into the top 50 research firms in the country and we just hit 100 employees with no slowing down in sight. Most of us have had the chance to take ownership of some really exciting work; if you have a good idea and you're willing to log the hours, Hanover is a place where you can leave your mark.

Hanover's generous with the job perks and the atmosphere is very social. We all have tons of work to do, but smart, interesting coworkers mean plenty of social breaks from the daily grind.

ConsEveryone here is over capacity, which is great as far as growth opportunities are concerned, but frustrating until you're paid for it.

Advice to Senior ManagementI'm going to echo the communication issues. There are too many secrets around here and there's not enough communication between departments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
