      Bad Culture, Good Learning Curve

      Pros

      This is a place where you are given a lot of responsibility and if you consistently deliver will gain more. Handy hires great talent, so you also learn from others substantially and get exposure to the ins/outs of business.

      Cons

      There is both no wider company culture and a culture of fear that comes directly from CEO: a bully. Leadership operates in short term windows and penalizes those based on the flavor of the day. While Handy touts being customer obsessed we aren't. Pros are underpaid and customers come after profits.
