Pros

Hanover makes work seem like anything but. I truly love coming to work every day and enjoy everyone I work with. The culture is that of family and honesty. Everyone that works for Hanover is friendly, intelligent and honest. Everyone has everyone else's best interest at heart. There is no place better to work and I hope that I retire as a Hanover employee.

Every company has its short comings but there is nothing major that sticks out to me as a con. The company is ever evolving and growing so communication can be sparse at times.

Cons

-No pay raises -High turnover -HIGH STRESS - Manager lacks respect for employee -Very toxic work environment -Lack of repercussions for upper management -Fear of retaliation when approaching upper management about toxic work environment - Small company = drama and back stabbing/ favoritism -Lack of communication pertaining to critical business matters between corporate and onsite management -Lack of resources needed to give the property to uphold "luxury standards" -Stingy on commissions -Ran poorly -Lack of consistency with procedures -Poor work/life balance

Advice to Management

Treat your employees better, bottom line. I expect a Houston based company to act as so. Houstonians are caring, giving and thoughtful. This company does not embody a true Texan spirit. A quick lunch with the owner and a power point slide show stating how good our medical benefits are doesn't cut it. Not sure how this company is ranked top 6 places to work in Houston.

No pay raises
