    I have been working at Horizon Hobby full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relaxed hours

    Fun event travel

    Not micro managed

    Cons

    Poor management in place

    Unrealistic expecations

    Can be the worst place to work and also the best place the next day.

    Very reactionary management. One little thing could mean Armageddon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your people

    Learn your market by doing. Not reading.

    Retention of employees needs a look

    Don't overload your employees with meaning less reports.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
