    Very caring and driven staff.

    Project Manager (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsGood product and staff. They really care about the people. Very knowledable of their product.

    ConsSmall group of knowledge experts. Niche market. Difficult to make progress or understand direction.

    Advice to Senior ManagementExpand your market into other areas that your product or skill level of employees can move into. Possibly consider purely consulting and also various small apps for iPhones and Androids. Try to operationalize your delivery as much as you can.

    Top Heavy without direction

    Project Manager - Business Analyst (Former Employee)
    Austin, TX

    ProsThe people are very nice and they value developers. I enjoyed working with the people. They have a great product.

    ConsThey lack strategy and cash flow. They have product, but if 3 people left that know the product and how to implement it...the company would suffer. They don't value professional Project Management. They do not have repeatable processes documented and don't understand how to transfer knowledge.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn knowledge management processes. Create baselines for what you deliver regarding professional services. Learn to transfer responsibility to new employees that might have a better idea of how to scale.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I truly believe that @hand is one of the best places to work in Texas!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros@hand offers a rich benefit program to all of it's full time employees. Culture is very important to @hand and is one that embraces the motto "work hard, play hard" and values employees personally and professionally. @hand encourages employees to speak their minds, push themselves and be forward-thinking, and collaborate as a team, no matter what department you are in.

    ConsSmaller company, more visibility when you make mistakes, but also when you succeed. Company is still growing, so feeling some of the "growing pains" associated with lack of processes and procedures and infrastructure.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work, continue to listen to your employees and value their feeback. Focus on maintaining our culture as we continue to grow.
