Pros

Young company with young employees
Work with interesting clients--primarily non-profits in higher ed
Work with smart co-workers with good collegiality

Cons

Senior management is out of touch and ambivalent to employees
Promises are made and then taken away
Often unrealistic expectations are put upon employees
No opportunities for professional advancement/development
Distant, erratic, and aloof CEO

Advice to Management

Please listen to employees ideas and concerns and be honest with potential employees during the interview. Better communication will help employee retention, which is horrible currently. It is hard to invest in Hanover when Hanover doesn't seem to invest in its employees.

    Pros

    Colleagues are smart, creative, interesting, nice
    Generally interesting project requests
    Pay is better than some organizations
    Advancement opportunities
    Good work/life balance
    Low-key & low-stress work environment

    Cons

    Smart, creative researchers under-utilized
    Pay could be better (see: CEB, ABC)
    Management is not transparent at all
    Minimal set expectations/feedback for researchers
    Little/no sharing between sales and research sides
    Advancement opportunities due in part to turnover
    No training or development aside from OTJ

    Advice to Management

    Managers could improve employee engagement and overall happiness at work by seeking more researcher input and by providing more clear expectations and feedback on projects - currently, employees feel under-valued because they are not regularly thanked for their work or, if it's not good, given very much feedback on how to improve.

    Overall, don't expect the moon from this small organization. As an employee: if you can upward manage well, can speak up for yourself, and are truly a self-starter, then this organization will be a good fit.
