    I worked at The Hanover Insurance Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great exposure to different areas of business
    - Team atmosphere among the lower levels
    - Good benefits/pay

    Cons

    - Outdated facilities & systems make work difficult and time-consuming
    - Working remotely is looked down upon
    - FLP Program creates environment of the "Haves" vs "Have-nots" with little-to-no training/development for mid-career level staff
    - No career advancement if not in the FLP Program or part of the "in-crowd"
    - Bonus is a factor in salary, but has not paid out in years. Stop saying this is a "pay for performance" culture

    Advice to Management

    - Communicate clearly with all levels and stop the "rah-rah" all-employee meeting messaging in a down year
    - Stop laying off older staff to replace them with younger, earlier in career talent.

    Pros

    Great coworkers who were willing to help the new guy learn the ropes. Its a good size company, but small enough you can get to know a lot of people in different departments. Hard work but rewarding.

    Cons

    No formal training program at all. Had to piece it together myself. They rarely promote from within. You will regularly see them hire from outside instead of promote.

    Advice to Management

    Develop some formal training and promote. Otherwise it just becomes a revolving door.
