    I worked at Horizon Behavioral Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working at Horizon. I felt the management team was great and supported the clinicians. I enjoyed working with the population and the work.

    Cons

    Leadership administration does not always understand that what is capable on paper is not capable when working with humans with mental illness or substance use. The billing requirements was too steep.
