      Ideal Company Culture

      Pros

      - The company culture at The Hanover was extremely unique in that everyone works together and focuses on their relationships as both employees and as human beings. Everyone's voice is heard and no matter your position you will be treated with respect. Everyone works very hard while maintaining a strong work life balance. - My internship was online, something that The Hanover was able to adapt very quickly to and still provide an extremely structured internship.

      Cons

      My personal experience generated no cons, especially because of the online nature. Given that I have no prior online internship experience, this summer set the bar as high as can be.

      Great work life balance, trust and respect

      Pros

      Hanover walks the talk when it comes to work life balance. Everyone is encouraged to have a flexible work arrangement (not just favorites or senior level employees) and employees have laptops so they are truly mobile. There is respect and trust for people to do what they need to do to care of their responsibilities at work and at home. Development is taken seriously. Managers are rated on how well they develop their direct reports and lead with the company's values. Including others is something people seem to take very seriously.

      Cons

      A lack of women leadership at the very top Silos which result in fragmented thinking, views
