Lonely work in the middle of a crowd

Research Associate (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Hanover Research full-time

ProsLots of opportunities to move upward if you do not make mistakes
Good location

ConsPeople in Research are stacked on top of one another in one giant room. You get very little privacy, yet you interact with no one and spend the whole day looking at the computer screen. Some of the work is boring, like looking up random things on google and citing them on a report. Upper management lacks communication skills (lots of fake smiles and politeness, no constructive feedback). High employee turnover. Behind all the smiles, the company seems to have a ruthless culture, taking in recent graduates who have nowhere else to go, and getting rid of people who struggle.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet people who can communicate well and actually help build professional skills.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
