    I worked at Horizon Media

    Pros

    looked great on my resume.

    Cons

    -culture, a lot of passive aggressive and mean spirited people.
    -hours, if you leave at 6 on a regular basis it's considered that you don't have enough work. Except if you are on the search team.
    -Cross team communication, good luck trying to break through the barriers they'll throw up when you attempt to work collaboratively. A favorite phrase is "I don't know" when they should\do know.
    -If you show yourself to have talent and a strong work ethic you'll simply be expected to pick up the slack for everyone. Not something that is very fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Workers observe daily and — in their behavior — often follow the example of their managers.

    I worked at Horizon Media as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Learn so much about the industry. The internship program is great. One of the best thing is that it is organized well. Great opportunity to get a full time offer. Office culture is pretty laid back. Good hours

    Cons

    Small intern class. Usually there is only one intern per team. Pool party was a great time but really awk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay

    Pros

    Worked in various departments in order to understand how the organization worked. Also worked with various vendors.

    Cons

    Immediate manager was not that involved and so I had to rely on other colleagues to assist. It did give me the opportunity to meet new people.

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

    Pros

    In LA there is a really nicely designed office. NY is nicer. The pay is very competitive and the health insurance is probably the best in the business. I think they want to do right by their employees but the CEO is so one-track focused on winning new business that the people get lost in the shuffle.

    Cons

    Sweat shop. Not staffed adequately. New Business is their number one priority over client service and work product. They turn over a lot of business because they don't onboard clients well with the right staff for the job.

    Pros

    - Independently operated
    - Lots of reinvestment in employee happiness
    - Beautiful workspace
    - Located in a trendy neighborhood
    - Lots of access to upper mgmt.

    Cons

    - Teams are kept pretty lean so there is a chance of burning out
    - Hours can be long
    - Not enough collaboration between teams. It exists, but could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Perhaps an alteration of the hiring structure to allow for more support against certain clients

    Pros

    Location is great. Agency is one of the best I've seen. Great looking space. CEO is really nice. Great benefits. Gym that opened is really nice.

    Cons

    I worked as an accountant for about a year in the finance department. There's a high turnover rate for a reason. It is ruled by a clique of mean girls who barely know how to do their job. I hope they hired a man when I left bc they are not nice to women in the department. I saw a clear divide as to how they treated men vs. women. They talk down to you and humiliate you in front of the whole department. If they put as much effort into their work as much as they did with how they gossip and are miserable- the work would be fantastic. I now work in another agency as a senior accountant and horizon medias reputation is deteriorating. Glad I left when I did. This place is a nightmare!
