    I worked at The Hanover Insurance Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great to work with other recent college grads, you'll make a lot of friends
    Decent pay out of college
    Workload isn't terrible
    Great volunteer opportunities
    There are a lot of problems that need to be fixed... if you're halfway intelligent you'll get exposure and the chance to fix them

    Cons

    -Terrible culture
    -Despite the fact that they promote "great career development opportunities" there are none management is hired from the outside or spread around to current management
    -Worcester may be the worst city in the world
    -Company is totally disconnected with current industry trends and refuses to accept that
    -Proprietary system was built in the 70's (think MS-DOS). Have fun doing any decent analysis
    -Rotating through positions? Prepare to become a professional report runner
    -Recognition is based on how much you whine. Do bad work and whine a lot? Get a big bonus and the chance to travel internationally. Do great work quietly? Get a Hanover emblazoned lunch box.
    -Company has no idea how to retain young talent- makes excuses for those that leave
    -If you're "early in career" and you're not an FLP, prepared to be passed over and ignored (This coming from an FLP...)
    -Useless job requirements (tests, classes, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Recognize industry trends and accept that it's time to adjust.
