    Former Employee - Local Video Investment in New York, NY

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Horizon Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Office space, summer party, great CEO

    Cons

    The Local Video Investment group is biased, racist, and anti Semitic. It doesn’t matter how hard you work or how many hours you put in, if you are not a favorite of management, you are treated poorly. HR only cares about upper management so they turn a blind eye to the toxic environment.

    I have been working at Horizon Media full-time for more than a year

    Business is personal is an actual thing here. Leadership actually cares about people and has handled COVID-19 with a touch of class one would not expect in holding company competitors.

    Cons

    At times being so agile comes at the sacrifice of structure which would be helpful

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Horizon Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great CEO that really cares about the people at the agency. A variety of well-known and interesting clients. Generous PTO & other benefits. Great people who are smart, hard-working, and interesting. It really feels like the agency is on the up - winning new business, hiring great people, innovating in all areas. In regular times: a beautiful office in a great location with an on-site gym and health center. In COVID times: Very transparent communication from CEO & leadership. Agency went to WFH before others did, no pressure to return or open as soon as possible. All in all, I feel very proud to work for Horizon!

    Cons

    Can get busy depending on the team. However, my work-life balance here is far better than other places I've worked.
