    None. This company is great.

    Pros

    Hanover is a great company that provides you with a wealth of opportunities to realize your full potential.

    Cons

    The location in Worcester is very boring as well as the people there. Recommended for people over 40.

    Advice to Management

    If you had offices in areas other than Worcester, you could attract better talent which would allow you to be competitive with competitors.

    Pros

    Managers have an open door policy. It's a very warm and welcoming environment to work in. I feel lucky to be working here.

    Cons

    Sometimes managers focus more on negative work issues rather than the positive. No other cons

    Advice to Management

    Let your employees know when they are doing a good job a little more often

    Pros

    The people are great to work with and the company is really starting to evelove. I think this comany is going to develop into one of the top insurers in the US.

    Cons

    Growth in the company depends on who you know and if you are recognized for your work. Sometimes the old roots of the company holds back growth.

    Advice to Management

    I think some older departments need to be revamped and spend money on more technology upgrades.

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

    Pros

    Great management. Great upper management. Open door policy. Everyone works as a team and management doesn't micromanage because they trust they've hired competant employees

    The gym, caf, clinic are great. The atmosphere is friendly. Pay is GREAT! If you work hard here, it will pay off. I've also never been denied from taking time off or working from home!

    Cons

    Workload during busy season becomes grueling.

    Advice to Management

    Management for claims is beyond great! Keep it up. No favortism noticed.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to get exposure and shine in a mid-sized organization. Exposure to C-Level executives as well as Business Unit leaders. Fast paced, changing environment. Collaborative work environment, team approach to achieving company results.

    Cons

    Nothing to speak of. Employees must take control of their career, and not expect the organization to do it for them.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in technology across the organization.

    Fred Eppinger and his leadership walk the talk. Best professional talent I've ever worked with.

    Cons

    Middle management weak; only certain managers evolve/develop employees-most do not, thus you need to be prepared to find your own way.
