    I worked at Handex Consulting & Remediation full-time

    Pros

    There was a very good training program in place for new hires. The staff was all very professional to their colleagues as well as clients.

    Cons

    The projects could be somewhat monotonous. Most of the work was gas station work and the clients could be overly demanding from time to time.

    I worked at Handex Consulting & Remediation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had an amazing group of people who I worked with. People in other offices were always willing to help.

    Cons

    Micro-managed, no room for advancement, corporate did not care about the people who where doing the actual work. Can't pay their subcontractors.

    Advice to Management

    Shut the doors.

    Pros

    I used the job title for a better position else where.

    Cons

    I can only speak for the Winter Park office. YMMV else where.

    The corporate office is a run down leaky cauldron of a place. Main area doesn't even have a ceiling when I worked there. Not even enough room for the people they do have. Sales people share cubbies. IT works out of a closet in another co owned area.

    This place is co owned by a 1%er who will make your life miserable. They use employees and "share" them with other businesses she owns. For example, the property management office next door to HCR (who's name has changed three times in last year due to crappy ownership) will have their employees do work for her personal house. Fixing her mother's squeaky rocker. Yep. Not kidding. She also uses IT the same way who's manager which is borderline useless. Actually. Ya. He is useless because he's never there. You have to go over personally to get help. CEO spends half time there and half time at main 1%er main office.

    Training is unheard of due to turnover rate. New hires teaching new hires.

    People who have senior level positions are only there cause they somehow lasted. Or couldn't get hired else where so they were promoted survival style.

    Worst experience I have on my resume. Luckily it was overlooked at my current place who's benefits blows theirs out the water. Like their .25% 401k matching. Seriously? It's like your begging people to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Yee abandon all hope who goes here. Career killer.

    I worked at Handex Consulting & Remediation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A paycheck and good people working with you. I still work with (by choice) some fellow former employees. I had a great boss right up to three weeks before I resigned. Once he quit, so did I.

    Cons

    It was very top heavy at the central Florida office and is run by venture capitalists. Does not promote often from within or from the right departments.

    Advice to Management

    Change or file bankruptcy.. again. Professional staff were great to deal with each day. I worked at the company for just over five years and saw some benefits diminish while others disappeared completely. At one point, the health insurance provider changed 3 times in a 6 month period. Minimal raises (one very small) provided over my tenure and when I left I increased my salary at my new job (same job title) for $12,000 more per year. Their reputation in the industry is now in the toilet. They employ mostly inexperienced field personnel to do the work and have suffered due to lack of in-the-field experience to make good work and business calls. I wish them well but glad I'm not there anymore.

    Pros

    You get a paycheck.
    They've been around forever and probably aren't going anywhere (dual-meaning) anytime soon. They would be an excellent operation to work for with new leadership in place.

    Cons

    Unusually bureaucratic for such a small organization.

    President & CEO has no energy and lacks the ability to execute on a vision because he's so stuck on doing whatever the owner of the parent company wants in order to maintain job security. He should've retired years ago.

    Micro-managed at every possible level.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourselves.

    Pros

    With the right leadership you can go far. If you show your best you will be recognized.

    Cons

    They say you are a team but when the going gets rough, its each person for themselves. It goes from we are a team to I will not fail. Put two and two together.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others the way you expect to be treated. Work on bringing out the best in every employee- not just your select handful. Share the workload and if you expect others to work with you to achieve goals, include the whole team and share the wealth!
