    Pros

    - Hard work and talent do not go unnoticed. With the fast growth of the company and a meritocratic culture, there is no need to 'wait your turn' before promotion.
    - A company culture that strikes the right balance between ambition and hard work, and socialization and community service. Happy hours, potlucks, trivia nights, and charity events are encouraged and well-attended.

    Cons

    - As mentioned many times in these reviews, professional development and training programs are sorely needed. Currently, the employees who have been successful are those who haven't needed much help in terms of training. Instituting a new employee training program would help build confidence and satisfaction for many others who might find much of the work (for both Content and Business Development) to be challenging.
    - As a researcher on the Content side, and it be easy at times to feel like a cog in the machine. More could be done to encourage every employee to understand the 'big picture'.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growth is great, and there is no lack of applicants for the growing number of positions, but more could be done to ensure current employee satisfaction and retention.

    This needn't require pay increases/more vacation time (although those would be nice!), as great gains could be made through more simple increases to training, communication and openness.

    Pros

    -Forward-thinking. Young, but experienced and passionate professionals that are not hesitant to try new tactics to ensure the company prospers
    -Limited bureaucracy
    -Ability to be an integral part of multiple new initiatives
    -Heavily rewarded for hard-work and ambitious attitude
    - Vital knowledge in the spectrum of research methodologies across all industries. Really see the full cycle of supporting prospective clients.
    -Unique mentoring from Development Directors that want to see you succeed

    Cons

    Because Hanover is growing at such a fast rate it is hard to put a definitive professional development plan in place. While entry-level employees receive a modest training early in positions, next-level positions lack a structured plan to strive for and achieve a registered skill set.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Possibly implement some sort of matrix that employees can track themselves along to see where they lie currently in their development and what is required for promotion. Not just noting performance metrics but also indicators of communication, mentorship, community outreach, etc.
