I have been working at Handy full-time (More than a year)
Benefits - unlimited vacation as long as you’re getting your work done, catered lunch and dinner, decent health care, impressive maternity leave policy, cool co-workers.
Upper management that’s accessible - the founders sit with the rest of the company and are both super down to earth and friendly.
Acknowledgement for your hard work - the company is big on giving a round of applause where it’s due.
Pressure for managers to hold frequent 1:1’s / quarterly “reviews”
Fast paced and challenging - we work on projects quickly and get to work with new groups on from project to project. Never a dull moment.
Frequent team dinners / lunches
Bright future for Handy
Haven’t come across any big cons beyond feeling a little tired every now and then but that’s at every job.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you’re doing.
I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Handy in March-2014.
The interview process was fairly intense. Steps:
1) Phone Screen
2) Phone Interview
4) Phone Interview With A Different Person
5) In Person Interview (included a beer after)
They seemed to assess against ability to do the job, desire to do the job and culture fit.
