    I have been working at The Hanover Insurance Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, 401k company matches 6%. Coworkers are awesome. The location is good. Base salary is pretty stinking good. I like cheese and they serve cheeses items in the cafeteria

    Cons

    Favoritism, inconsistent. cafeteria could use more selection. They need a smoothie bar. Lower management needs more backbone. Training program is bad.

    Advice to Management

    Promote leaders, not yes men

    I have been working at The Hanover Insurance Group full-time

    Pros

    The majority of management really cares about their employees and are changing policies to be more work/life balanced. Good career opportunities but you have to advocate for yourself much of the time.

    Cons

    You will find a few managers that are still living in the dark ages, i.e. against working from home and wearing jeans.

    Advice to Management

    Managers who don't believe in progressive work practices should retire. They are a thing of the past.
