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.

    There is no pros for these company

    chaeting on you, no response or after days

    Advice to Management

    Handy is cheating on you, you have to share work with somebody you never met before, cancellation fee was in this case higher than the pay. the HANDY Pro App is fake only they charge you $8 extra fee but you do not get more jobs. First three jobs were good after that it slows down and you have to take care that you get your money. I have more than ones to mount a TV over 60 in and in my work order it says under 45 in if you try to communicate with Handy you will be happy you get a answer after 3 days. I did a job and costumer proofed it that I did the job Handy said somebody else did the job I had to fight 3 week before I get my money....very poor company.
    Do not waste you time HANDY makes no sense, the idea is very good but the people behind HANDY very bad.
