    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 Management

    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.

    I have been working at Hanover Research full-time

    Pros

    - Opportunity for rapid advancement
    - Intellectually stimulating environment
    - Intelligent, motivated, collaborative staff

    Hanover capitalizes on the strengths of staff and invests in their ongoing development

    Cons

    - Fast-paced and performance-driven which can be stressful
    - Revenue-driven (which is great for rapid corporate growth but can pressure staff with aggressive goals and ambitious project timelines)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maximize employee strengths by carefully determining where staff can have the greatest impact.
