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.

    I worked at Handy as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I can pivk my own hours and schedule

    Cons

    Where do I start? It is just an awful company to work for. I had a request for a cleaning job. I responded right away, I wasn't available. Last night I received a reminder about the job. THE JOB I WASN'T AVAILABLE FOR. They sent text messages requesting me to reach out to the customer. That's theirjob. I declined it. Now they have stolen 50.00 from my account. I will dispute the charges. I also had one customer cancelling on me 3 hours prior to the job. I'm sure they charged the customer BUT they should have refunded me. Total scam and joke. Stay away..
