I have been working at Hanover Research full-time

Pros

Hanover is a fantastic company to be employed by. Completely dedicated to fast growth, there is always something going on - very conducive to personal growth inside the company. New positions are created all the time, yielding a great opportunity for internal promotion. The atmosphere is upbeat, energetic and fun, yet simultaneously laser focused on results and success. For young people looking to kick start a career, all while developing valuable business experience, this is an ideal place to work.

Cons

Their K Street Office overlooks the food trucks parked around Farragut Park, and sometimes that makes it extremely hard to concentrate around lunch time.

Advice to Management

Continue to be proactive about improving. While significant strides have been made, complacency is no one's friend.

    I have been working at Hanover Research full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Forward-thinking. Young, but experienced and passionate professionals that are not hesitant to try new tactics to ensure the company prospers
    -Limited bureaucracy
    -Ability to be an integral part of multiple new initiatives
    -Heavily rewarded for hard-work and ambitious attitude
    - Vital knowledge in the spectrum of research methodologies across all industries. Really see the full cycle of supporting prospective clients.
    -Unique mentoring from Development Directors that want to see you succeed

    Cons

    Because Hanover is growing at such a fast rate it is hard to put a definitive professional development plan in place. While entry-level employees receive a modest training early in positions, next-level positions lack a structured plan to strive for and achieve a registered skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly implement some sort of matrix that employees can track themselves along to see where they lie currently in their development and what is required for promotion. Not just noting performance metrics but also indicators of communication, mentorship, community outreach, etc.

    Pros

    This company is experiencing fast growth, which means busy people and major opportunities for employees. We're about to break into the top 50 research firms in the country and we just hit 100 employees with no slowing down in sight. Most of us have had the chance to take ownership of some really exciting work; if you have a good idea and you're willing to log the hours, Hanover is a place where you can leave your mark.

    Hanover's generous with the job perks and the atmosphere is very social. We all have tons of work to do, but smart, interesting coworkers mean plenty of social breaks from the daily grind.

    Cons

    Everyone here is over capacity, which is great as far as growth opportunities are concerned, but frustrating until you're paid for it.

    Advice to Management

    I'm going to echo the communication issues. There are too many secrets around here and there's not enough communication between departments.
