    I have been working at Horizon Pharma full-time

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

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

    We have to fight to be Horizon One and avoid the Silo Mentality.

    I worked at Horizon Pharma full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, great training, great team environment and work ethic

    Cons

    After 9 months they evaluate you and within a year you are gone if you aren’t hitting your sales goals. You don’t really get a chance to improve, you either do great in the first 3 months and keep improving or you’re let go.

    Advice to Management

    Give reps time in ther territories if they need it.. it doesn’t mean they’re doing a bad job if it’s taking them a little bit to reach goal.. especially if they have one of the lowest performing territories in the company

    I worked at Horizon Pharma full-time

    Pros

    The company offers many perks and opportunities to its employees. There is a lot of movement within the company and they are able to move quickly

    Cons

    The biggest issue with the company is the Sr management ability to do their roles and allow the people in other roles do theirs. There is too much micro management and a lack of belief in people
