    Everyone is great and the office allows for everyone to really socialize.

    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.

    Pros

    Loved the surrounding Territory Managers.

    Cons

    Don't meet your numbers, you're fired. Doesn't matter if you pharmacy is insufficient or a hurricane comes and shuts your territory down for a month. It's your fault and you're fired.

    Advice to Management

    Be more understanding.

    Pros

    Easy Job
    Pays well

    Cons

    Idiots run the company
    Favortism, and it's just not related to Fenwal
    So many bullshitters
    Self-motivation diminishes because promotion is not based on talent

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring consultants to do your job

    Pros

    Rapidly growing company that values hard work and entrepreneurial spirit. Smart people and not a lot of tolerance for "dead weight." This is not a company where people are passionate. Above market compensation for performers.

    Cons

    Job openings, promotions and award criteria are not transparent. Can be a bit of a "old boys network" though there are efforts to change this. Inconsistent management philosophies across teams including rules regarding working from home, living out of state and work ethic.

    I have been working at Horizon Pharma full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay! This company does pay well for performance. Fun environment when things are going well. They adapt quickly to obstacles and are always looking to purchase new orphan meds.

    Cons

    Micromanagement. Horizon claims we are "territory CEO's" but monitor every move we make. They require higher than average call activity which significantly reduces any flexibility in daily schedules. They have put sales people on performance plans after six months if growth isn't happening.

    Advice to Management

    I am number one in my district but the company needs to have more patience with other salespeople who are struggling. Don't be so quick to fire reps. Develop better coaching from leadership.

    Very fair company to its employees. Forward thinking and always ahead of the curve. Benefits and compensation are pay for performance. Opportunity to advance is decent.

    I have no cons working at Horizon.

    I am honored to be an employee of this company and its ability to always stay ahead of the curve and offer great products to patients.

    Pros

    Potential to earn huge bonuses, company treats its employees well, great leadership

    Cons

    New rules and expectations create a hostile work environment; managers are being forced to micromanage and you now have to collect 8 signature calls each day. Chasing doctors down for a signature is annoying and the tension rises as more and more new rules are being set in place...If you are looking for a way into pharma, use this as your foot in the door.
