    I have been working at Horizon Pharma full-time


    Although fast-growing, it's still trying to maintain a small-company attitude where individual opinions count. Best reason to work here is because they demonstrate that they care about its patients.


    HQ is located in Illinois; not good if one works remotely.

    phone interview with recruiter, then 2 face to face. First one is with the District manager, second is with DM and RM. Always meet in hotels or airports, Laid back feeling, low pressure.
