    I have been working at The Hanover Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Accelerating company. Amazing support system within management and onsite team members. Upper management recognizes individuals weekly and empower their employees. The benefits are great. Building lots of new properties, great opportunity and great construction! Makes our jobs a little easier to lease.

    Cons

    Have to work frequent weekends unless you are a manager. Makes it difficult to plan things with family/friends when they typically have their days off.

    I have been working at The Hanover Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great opportunity for relocation across the nation

    Cons

    Upper management leaves you in the dark, and it is hard to find trustworthy managers. Dress code is strict and you are required to have flexible schedule with their needs met. They pay you less than competitors, too.

    Former Employee - Property Management 

    I worked at The Hanover Company full-time

    Pros

    -The Property Management side is quick to promote and has many properties across the country. If you are willing to move to new areas often you will be promoted quickly -Leaders in the on site management teams are given freedom to handle the day-to-day independently without constant micromanagement from regional managers -Top performers are recognized regularly -New departments were formed at the corporate level to help manage training, marketing, etc. that used to be handled at the site level, creating a more consistent result from property to property -Many of the corporate leaders listen to the feedback from the on site leaders to adjust the action plan together for top property performance

    Cons

    -Company culture has gone downhill -Oversight from upper management is inconsistent -Salaries are not competitive and very LOW for the industry -The company tends to hire young to keep personnel expenses low -New policies and procedures are created constantly, making it impossible for the on site teams to keep up with the ever-changing protocol

    I have been working at The Hanover Company

    Pros

    Oppertunity to learn, and advance your career. In good economic times, management at Hanover was excellent. You are given lead way to run projects as you see fit. You are also supported by upper management with easy access directly to the top. Compensation is above average. Bonus structure adds real pay offs to succeed.

    Cons

    As the economy is down, so is oppertunity. Hanover is very dependant on the finacial lending market. They are not diversified. At the time of my employ, Hanover was expanding expotentially. With this rapid expansion, standards and proceedures never caught up. Too much central influence on portions of work, and preference to certain sub standard subcontractors.
