    Used to be a good place, not any more!

    I worked at Handango

    Pros

    Used to be rated as one of the best place to work in the DFW area. Management cared about employees and employees cared about each other.

    Cons

    Not any more with the change in top management team. Company headed in the wrong direction, and morale was really low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the top management team (well, maybe not, because the company was sold to its competitor before it's too late)

    Lack of innovation and competent leadership killed a great place to work.

    Former Employee - IT Personnel in Irving, TX
    Former Employee - IT Personnel in Irving, TX

    I worked at Handango

    Pros

    In the beginning, this company was all about it's people. Great people to work with, great atmosphere, and competent management who cared about the organization and their employees. Pay was not the best, but they compensated through a lot of employee perks and management encouraged professional development, often promoting from within the company and rewarding outstanding performance.

    Cons

    Turned into just another corporation with little connection with it's employees. Hired a lot of titles, instead of talent. Totally lost touch with the guiding principals of the founders. A lot of executive turnover and the inability to successfully mend or upgrade an ailing IT infrastructure. Focused more on deadlines instead of delivering a quality product. Did not have a strong connection with it's customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find passionate people who believe in the company vision, cultivate and reward their talents when-ever and where-ever possible. Be Unbound, Radiate Passion, Unleash Potential, Succeed Together, & Own It.

    Pros

    Handango WAS a company in a hot space. It's a small-medium company, and HAD a good working environment until they decided to expand the executive team.

    Cons

    Terribly poor leadership at the executive level, which wasted investor's $ and took down a high-flying company that helped create the space

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Resign

    I worked at Handango

    Pros

    There are great people throughout the company who really understand mobile commerce and feel passionately about enriching customers mobile lifestyles.

    Cons

    Management has been disingenuous, maybe even dishonest, about the resources the company has at it's disposal and the prospects for the companies success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more honest and realistic in assessing what's working and what's not working. Shed the dead weight, work on attainable goals and make the hard decisions necessary to find a way to survive.

    Great place to work, but missed the rocket

    I worked at Handango

    Pros

    The company clearly takes its guiding principles to heart for the most part; a commitment to work/life balance while also striving to lead a rapidly-developing industry.

    Cons

    Some senior management and the Board was too slow to adjust to market trends that were quite clear. Too much internal struggle between teams (and whether to invest in channels or consumer sites).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to innovation; focus on where the market is going to get to that spot rather than focusing on what the last 10 years have achieved

    I have been working at Handango

    Pros

    No good reason to work there. Company is not doing well.

    Cons

    2 words: Senior Leadership. There is a lack of strategy and leadership at the top level of the organization, which has led to squandering an excellent opportunity in a fast-growing industry segment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advise is for the Board: Change the entire senior management team, and insist on: 1. experience in the space; and 2. accountability based on results
