    Pros

    Good atmosphere, friendly, great people, easy to work with, and a fun place to go to every day.

    Cons

    Reviews weren't fair in some cases, salary is below average, people with more "experience" didn't know how to do the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the people who are honest.

    I worked at Handmark

    Pros

    It is a fairly young industry and this is a small to medium sized company with an entrepreneurial spirit. It's exciting to be doing new things and to make use of cool new technology. It also felt more like a family than a company. People really cared for each other and the company itself cared about maintaining the work life balance more than any company I've ever worked for.

    Cons

    The biggest downside was that the industry and the economy have been a bit volatile which meant that there were often periods of growth followed by periods of downsizing because of a change in direction. For some folks the instability was hard to handle. I myself was eventually laid off, but I'd go back in a heartbeat.

    Used to be a good place to work, but new senior management has changed that.

    Pros

    Handmark is a fast-paced environment in a cutting-edge industry. A start-up that has enjoyed some success over its 10+ year history.

    Cons

    Current management has recently demonstrated a fickle attitude towards its objectives and employees with several changes in direction and periods of hiring followed shortly after by periods of layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose a direction, get passionate about it, communicate your goals clearly and honestly to the company and get employees buy-in,
