A great company for young researchers.

Senior Research Associate (Current Employee) Washington, DC

ProsResearchers have a lot of freedom as long as work is done well and on time. Researchers manage their own projects and have the opportunity to design and carry out projects from beginning to end. Hanover encourages methodological creativity and innovation in the research process.

This is a young company filled with young people. Performance trumps age and experience.

The business model is profitable and there are few competitors. Most of Hanover's challenges have been caused by rapid growth.

ConsHanover is a great place for self-starters that like to manage themselves. Hanover is a poor fit for people that need frequent collaboration, management, or assistance. While help is always available, you are still very much on your own.

Career pathing is unclear. Many employees have found success by carving out new roles or becoming experts in niche research methodologies. Hanover is trying to become more transparent in its promotion process.

The research office can be too quiet and Hanover does not promote many social events. There is a core happy hour group.

Advice to Senior ManagementContent team needs more incentives for performance, similar to what the sales team has. The sales team needs more research knowledge and career support, similar to what the content team has. Most of these issues will be ironed out over time.

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

    Lonely work in the middle of a crowd

    Research Associate (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    I have been working at Hanover Research full-time


    Pros: Lots of opportunities to move upward if you do not… Cons: People in Research are stacked on top of one another in one giant room. You get very little privacy, yet you interact with no one… Advice to Senior Management: Get people who can communicate well and actually help build… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Sales is social, research is not...

    Research (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    I have been working at Hanover Research full-time


    Pros: It is a paycheck at the end of the (bi)… Cons: 95% independent work (could be a + if you like that) and you can go all day without speaking with anyone even though they are… Advice to Senior Management: CDs need management skills. This would benefit communication with researchers… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
