    Frequent ownership changes

    Program Director (Former Employee)

    ProsSalary, opportunity for growth, good benefits, good training. You are encouraged and trusted to be very independent.

    ConsFrequent changes in ownership. Required to make numerous changes with each buy out. Support from corporate decreased with each buy out. Program Managers were given more and more responsibility and less support with no increases in pay or benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement has no control over the company being bought out, however please keep in mind that this is as tough (or tougher) for your field employees as it is for you. Make changes gradual and listen to concerns of employees .... being supportive but upholding new policies.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prospaid mileage quickly, benefits were fine, goodf focus, true professionals

    Conslack of communication, need more training - If a contract isn't signed, you better be willng to go where they have openings or you lose your job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore communication with your team. Either micro-manage or be aloof, but don't go back and forth. One or the other. More positive feedback so employees know they are going in the right direction.

    Sweat Shop

    Care Manager III (Former Employee) Lewisville, TX

    ProsThere is no "pros" for this corporation. The IT is cheap, flawed, and bad. The organization is capable of attracting good people.

    ConsYou must ask to go to the bathroom.
    Reviews are subjective.
    Management openly states that they "only give breaks because we are required to."
    Entire staff in the EAP call center turned over twice in 9 months.
    Management is moronic and poorly trained.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHatred of your staff leads to turnover.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hey Joey, there is a 2000 lb Elephant on your lawn in Texas; maybe you should have a look!

    Administrator (Current Employee)

    ProsOne can gain valuable experience as corporate gives you a substantial amount of responsibility. Horizon has excellent computerized / internet based tools and systems. Professionals working in the field have the opportunity to network with others at their level. There are some very good people working there.

    ConsYou are treated as if you are expendable because you are. There is a lack of support from corporate management to do the right things in the field / on the program level. They talk a good talk, but their words do not match their actions. It is all a big game, a sort of perpetual dog and pony show that the corporate office plays in order to keep PSI at bey and their jobs protected. The funny thing is it is so obvious, almost everyone (outside of corporate) sees what is going on, but they are too insecure to do anything about it. Program staff get paid anywhere from 50k to 120k a year; that kind of salary is hard to make elsewhere - can only imagine what senior management earns. Greed and insecurity does things to people and causes them to do things to others that they probably would not do under different circumstances.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHorizon Health could be a great place to work and an extremely profitable business if it was run better. The senior management team is invested in retaining their own jobs and trying to keep from being "found out" by the more savvy senior management personnel with Psychiatric Solutions. The company has the foundation to be excellent, but they are carrying dead weight and the load gets heavy after a while as it inevitably pulls everyone down. Stop covering up the incompetence and thousands, if not millions of dollars in lost revenues to save your own rear ends. Joey Jacobs and the team at PSI will see through you eventually. How long do you think it will be before PSI spots the 2000 lb cow sitting on your front lawn? Just because you ignore it day after day, doesn't mean that others can't see it; stop fooling yourselves.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
