I have been working at Handy full-time

Pros

Empowered to make decisions and drive action across the organization. Company focus on personal development and growth. Management and peers open to new ideas. Fast-paced, ever-changing, company has tons of growth potential

Cons

Very direct communication style. Can get talked over easily. Organization can feel siloed depending on the group. Everyone stretched thin

Advice to Management

Find times to give positive feedback to the company outside of all hands

    Unfair paid, 2 hours estimated work means 4 hour work in reality , they just pay for 2 , it's not worth to waste your time your car and tools to get paid 10 for an hour
