    I worked at Handy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free lunch, but as economics class taught us, there's no such thing as a free lunch. Some of the engineers are great people, and at least one of the managers is honest, has a measure of humility, and is not a chode, but just the one that I'm aware of. Unfortunately, they weren't actually my manager.

    Cons

    The uppers very obviously pay to have positive reviews added on both the app store and the google play store. They also very obviously have had some of those managers (who are actively engaged in looking as good as possible to the CEO) add glowing reviews on here as well. No one below manager level would give a 5 star review. Handy has been bleeding talent as people find...

    I have been working at Handy

    Pros

    We get to listen to the CEO talk about how the company is doing such great things for the world every day while he simultaneously plans the next mass firing of employees.

    Cons

    This place is dark. They can't hold on to a single manager or VP for more than a year. They all leave, and not for a better offer necessarily, but to work anywhere else but Handy. It's clear that no one can work with the CEO and he could care less about the people that made this company what it is. (Unless you went to HBS..they can do no wrong) So many new senior managers...

    Advice to Management

    You've already been given advice. And then those people left because you couldn't deliver.

    I worked at Handy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Weekends free, health insurance and life insurance, free cleanings every month, they fly you to NYC to train for a week once you've been hired, company retreats. You're also helping some people get jobs and get their lives together, so that can be really nice for them.

    Cons

    I think HQ in NYC has no clue what working at Handy is like outside New York. They're very East Coast in that they don't understand or want to understand the challenges their satellite cities (i.e., Seattle, Austin, San Jose, D.C., Denver, Boston, Phoenix, Philly, LA, Baltimore) have, especially with regards to transportation and parking. Handy in NYC hosts orientations for new professionals right by a subway station,...

    Advice to Management

    Hire people to manage ONE city. Yeah it will be more expensive for you but you won't LITERALLY drive people to resign that way. Show some more respect to people below you, such as the cleaners themselves and your employees. Actually make an effort to understand the experiences of the people below you so you won't be so quick to berate them for not living up to your unreasonable demands.
