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

    I have been working at Handy as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Set own hours, own locations, get paid daily.

    Cons

    Pay rates, have to buy own supplies, negative customers

    Advice to Management

    I have advice for those posting negatively: 1.) If you get a job working a Housekeeping job at a hotel or something, I hope you all know they are starting at $11/ hr. Why complain when Handy is convenient and you set your own hours as opposed to working full time at a hotel or hospital even buses getting the same pay but having to work 8 hour shifts? I am happy with the flexibility here and being able to set my own schedule! I guess these are the people who depends on this as a full time income. Either way, consider the alternatives and appreciate this company!
