    I have been working at Hanover Research

    Pros

    Professional growth
    Team cohesion
    Excellent rewards for hard work
    Ability for internal advancement
    Hard-working, yet relaxed culture
    Amazing research capabilities
    Opportunity to be apart of a rapidly growing, young company
    Encouragement of employee input/ideas
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Segregation between research and development staff
    Lack of transparency between upper management and associate-level employees
    No concrete, established advancement track (although there are many opportunities)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest to promote more professional interaction between research and development employees. This would help both sides to have a better understanding of the excellent work Hanover has to offer, which will ultimately help Development sell and Research continue outputting great projects. Also, it would be a good idea to establish more of a downward communication itinerary between executives and associate level employees.

    I worked at Hanover Research

    Pros

    Colleagues are smart, creative, interesting, nice
    Generally interesting project requests
    Pay is better than some organizations
    Advancement opportunities
    Good work/life balance
    Low-key & low-stress work environment

    Cons

    Smart, creative researchers under-utilized
    Pay could be better (see: CEB, ABC)
    Management is not transparent at all
    Minimal set expectations/feedback for researchers
    Little/no sharing between sales and research sides
    Advancement opportunities due in part to turnover
    No training or development aside from OTJ

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers could improve employee engagement and overall happiness at work by seeking more researcher input and by providing more clear expectations and feedback on projects - currently, employees feel under-valued because they are not regularly thanked for their work or, if it's not good, given very much feedback on how to improve.

    Overall, don't expect the moon from this small organization. As an employee: if you can upward manage well, can speak up for yourself, and are truly a self-starter, then this organization will be a good fit.
