    Good company, Poor management.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHorizon provides excellent benefits and growth opportunities. Most departments are fair and flexible.

    ConsThere are double standards in certain departments. Teamwork and camaraderie are discouraged. Some managers are "bullies" and have 0 management skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRe-evaluate those in upper management positions. Many are unapproachable and couldn't care less about their employees. It would be beneficial to hire some "leaders" instead of managers.

    One of the best companies I've ever worked at.

    Program Manager (Current Employee) Newark, NJ

    ProsAbility to work from home and flexible work schedules. Management really cares about its employees. The company offers all types of perks to the employees. (i.e. health center, Walgreens in the building, a free gym, a day care center, LabCorp) and Journey to Health is a program that all employees can participate in. With health care reform, there are challenges, but the leadership is working very hard to make sure the company is successful. If you work hard, you will be recognized.

    ConsIf driving into Newark, traffic can be difficult at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to do what you're doing. Engage employees and listen to their perspectives. Everyone wants to do their part in helping Horizon be successful.
