Pros

Rapid promotion and comp growth
Development of multiple skill sets
Lack of micromanagement
Great group of people to work with/many are friends outside of work

Cons

Jack of all trades, master of none
Growth can lead to chaos
Lack of bureaucracy also means lack of structure/plenty of ambiguity

Advice to Management

Communicate, communicate, communicate
Allow researchers to specialize by industry, or research type, or both
Free up Content Directors for mentoring/prof development

    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 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.
