    Intern (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsLearn 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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter pay

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

    ConsImmediate 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.

    Not my favorite job

    Director (Current Employee)
    Los Angeles, CA

    ProsIn 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.

    ConsSweat 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.

    Amazing culture, great people, great clients, constant growth.

    Supervisor (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsI work with some of the best in the business. Horizon offers great opportunities - such as advancement courses.

    ConsSalaries are not very competitive and raises are few and far between.

    Work intensive, but fair for the most part.

    Senior Strategist - Digital (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Never work in Finance

    Staff Accountant (Former Employee)

    ProsLocation 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.

    ConsI 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!

    Enjoyable experience with enjoyable people.

    Brand Strategist (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsThe intern program provided an all-encompassing view into the world of media through numerous training sessions and informationals
    I felt that I was allowed to express ideas and suggestions to my co-workers; the environment was open and inviting
    Offices are excellent; one of the best in NYC
    Young, vibrant workforce
    Access to on-site gym

    ConsSome people I've spoken to felt marginalized by the senior management
    Pay is below average

    Overall Good Experience

    Former Employee (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsBeautiful office space w/ open floor plan, unlimited sick days, 20 days PTO, frequent in-office events, gym on site, training seminars, young/fun environment, and CEO really great. Although base salaries at Horizon aren't the highest, there is paid OT, which is not the case in many other agencies. It also seemed relatively easy to switch departments.

    ConsIn some departments, there is a severe lack of professionalism/respect for fellow employees. Many members of senior management are not strong leaders, but rather have just been there the longest and seem totally checked out. The bulk of the work fell on a few strong workers, while others slipped by doing less than the bare minimum, often costing the company $ for careless mistakes. Those who did put in 100% were not rewarded accordingly, but expected to continuously pick of the slack of lazy colleagues.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsHorizon is a wonderful environment to work in. It is a private company with a move intimate feel. Almost like home except work! I have been employee with Horizon for over 7 years and I actually enjoy coming to work everyday!

    ConsAs anyone would i'd like love more money, but who doesn't!
