    Je travaille chez Handy à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Everyone at Handy has the chance to make a real impact from day #1. The work culture values personal growth and development with team members being given big problems to solve early on. In an environment obsessed with data, Handy is fiercely a-political which means that the best idea wins and you are evaluated by your impact. It is a place filled with amazing people who take what they do very seriously, but not themselves. Also love sushi day.

    Inconvénients

    There is not a single role that doesn’t require you to roll up your sleeves, and because you are assessed by your output you need to perform. Not everyone is up for such a performance driven culture, so could be a shift for anyone coming from a different environment. And it is unclear why Dos Toros hasn’t made a lunch appearance in a long, long while.

    J'ai travaillé chez Handy en contrat permanent

    Avantages

    "Free" lunch and snacks (really just included in salary) are very convenient.

    Some smart/fun people in the office.

    Company has desire and means to grow really fast so new projects can spin up really quickly.

    Inconvénients

    I personally was lied to to about my role to get me to accept, and I found out later that this is a regular, well-known practice at Handy--tell them anything to get them to say yes, then switch things up on day 1.

    Unbelievable cliqueyness around and insistence to hire Harvard and other Ivy MBAs (despite the fact that both the founders dropped out of HBS). Clear internal hierarchy and preferential treatment for those folks.

    CEO is completely unwilling to either cut or educate senior team members who don't know what they're doing, and HR is unwilling or unable to provide effective management training to those people.

    Conseils à la direction

    Give up this Harvard obsession. Be willing to either educate or fire those managers who make their team members miserable and unproductive, instead of just "failing up" and promoting/shuffling them to other roles.

    Avantages

    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

    Inconvénients

    Haven’t come across any big cons beyond feeling a little tired every now and then but that’s at every job.

    Conseils à la direction

    Keep doing what you’re doing.

    J'ai travaillé chez Handy en contrat permanent (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    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.

    Inconvénients

    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 more interesting and positive work where the stock options are more likely to matter.

    The hours are just about always long/late, and if you actually take a normal 10 minute break, you're seen as uncommitted, addressed by your manager, and it's a black mark.

    It doesn't matter how much you've actually contributed, just how good you looked doing 'something' and how much credit you've taken.

    No matter how many times people bring up the fact that both providers and customers are getting screwed and are unhappy and we ought to think about how we could better serve them, the only conversation the uppers have is how to better control them, pay the providers less money, collect more fees, and squeeze more out of customers.

    Je travaille chez Handy à plein temps (Moins d'un an)

    Avantages

    Challenging work in a fun environment. Plenty of autonomy and freedom to work in the manner you want, provided you get your work done and focus on targets. It's a goal driven company with little to no bureaucracy. The liberal vacation policy and free lunch/dinners don't hurt either.

    Inconvénients

    Less formal structures for onboarding, so a lot of initiative and persistence is required to get comfortable. Typical hours start a little later than 9 & end after 6, so early risers/finishers might have a hard transition.

    Conseils à la direction

    An assigned mentor for new hires might be helpful - someone who the new hire could reach out to at any point to ask questions, or steer the new hire to the best resource.
