    I have been working at The Hanover Company

    Pros

    Oppertunity to learn, and advance your career. In good economic times, management at Hanover was excellent. You are given lead way to run projects as you see fit. You are also supported by upper management with easy access directly to the top.
    Compensation is above average. Bonus structure adds real pay offs to succeed.

    Cons

    As the economy is down, so is oppertunity. Hanover is very dependant on the finacial lending market. They are not diversified.
    At the time of my employ, Hanover was expanding expotentially. With this rapid expansion, standards and proceedures never caught up.
    Too much central influence on portions of work, and preference to certain sub standard subcontractors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on regional development.

    Pros

    Hanover can be a very rewarding place to work. Generally the company cares about giving their employees all the tools they need to be sucessful and generally treats them well. The vertical integration that compromises the Hanover buisness model also affords employees a much broader look into the apartment development buisness. Thus providing a more benefial employment experience than one would get if they simply worked for an engineer, contractor, developer, architect, property manager, etc. They also seem to compensate relatively well. Being a small company, it is also easy to get recognized as a smart/motivated/intelligent worker which can be very rewarding.

    Cons

    Sometimes different people in different departments get preferential treatment that is quite often unfair. Also, senior management moves very slowly on making important decisions and quite often changes those descisions at the last minute. Making things much more difficult for the average employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with employees about the direction of the company and new job prospects.
