    Pros

    Superb offices, smart teams and structured but stream-lined departments. Great place to work, I feel that I get paid for learning! If you are motivated and talented, join this place to boost your career.

    Cons

    Sometimes hours can be long but that's normal for this industry. The agency is exponentially growing so current employees will need to carry the extra weight of future new business until new teams are set up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on treating your employees right!

    Pros

    I have an amazing boss, who is not only very intelligent and fantastic at what he does, finds time to mentor everyone working under him. I think the work is super interesting and I'm learning so much (lots of trainings to supplement knowledge build). The office space is so beautiful, everyone I bring here is very jealous (oh and it's in the process of looking EVEN BETTER). Very lax environment and super generous benefits (PTO/Holidays- wow...it almost feels like Europe).

    Cons

    Raises are few and far between; still into a very agency traditional mindset of hiring- so only people with the necessary (and very specific) experience which I think can hurt the company.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box HMI and hire more people with unique backgrounds. Skill sets can be learned and developed- it's not brain science ;-)

    Pros

    Great benefits and fun atmosphere

    Cons

    Politics revolving around promotions. Management may not be straight forward in assessments.

    Pros

    Good people, attempt at work/life balance (but doesn't always happen), nice office space

    Cons

    Can be very long hours/stressful, some departments are severely understaffed and work a lot more than others, not enough office space (although currently building out more space), often times can be bad

    Advice to Management

    need better communication from the top down -- some teams really struggle with upper management effectively and transparently communicating to them

    Pros

    Even thought I was only there for an internship, I feel that I was really valued by the company. I feel like my work mattered and the culture there is amazing.

    Cons

    I don't really have anything negative to say about my time at Horizon. As an internship, they satisfied all of my needs and exceeded all expectations I had.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Everything matters, and no little act goes unnoticed by employees. I really felt appreciated at Horizon and could see myself working there in the future.

    Pros

    Fantastic internship experience with horizon. I learned so much from all the various departments. Great office culture - very innovative.

    Cons

    I've got nothing to say here. The internship program was rewarding and I learned a ton through hands on experience.
