    I have been working at Handy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    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

    Cons

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Handy in March-2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly intense. Steps:

    1) Phone Screen
    2) Phone Interview
    3) Project
    4) Phone Interview With A Different Person
    5) In Person Interview (included a beer after)
    6) Offer

    They seemed to assess against ability to do the job, desire to do the job and culture fit.
