Handy & Harman Reviews
Pros – Learned a lot during my time there. Very friendly atmosphere. Pay was good, but benefits were great. Sr. executive management very experienced in the metals industry.

Advice to Senior Management – Keep on doing what you are doing.

Advice to Senior Management – If the company is having a record setting year, reward the sales team. Additionally, commission should be paid sooner than three months after it's earned.

Pros – the vast majority of employees are intelligent, friendly, helpful, kind, work hard and are extremely pleasant to work with making for a positive work environment.
Cons – the most senior executives are obnoxious, condescending, insulting and difficult to work with. They refuse to listen to the advice of their advisors and second guess the work, qualifications and abilities of just about everyone in the company
Advice to Senior Management – Get real. You have hired people to perform the work required by their positions because of their knowledge, experience and ability to communicate. You should treat them with respect and value their opinions and efforts rather than degrade them and have their work checked by outside services - your actions are extremely counterproductive and inefficient.
