    Pros

    The awards that Horizon has received in the past few years truly do reflect what it's like to work here. There are growth opportunities and support from management.

    Pros

    Unparalleled job opportunity coupled with amazing corporate responsibility and great benefits!!!

    Cons

    I would personally rather have a company car than a monthly stipend. However the stipend is quite generous.

    I have been working at Horizon Therapeutics full-time

    Pros

    There are many people who are friendly and love their job. The vacation and benefits are great for those that can use them. Some people are able to come and go whenever its convenient and have half days on Fridays. The new 10 week off benefit for mothers and fathers is wonderful.

    Cons

    Nepotism is extremely high and many challenges cannot be solved because people are afraid to challenge people that are insiders. Leadership hires incompetent people who do not have to work because they are protected. Those that are unfortunate enough to be hired for actual work history and ethic are often treated unfairly and feel like the company culture and benefits are not geared to them. Finally, there is a huge amount...

    Advice to Management

    Please actually hire people for those talents and not just “family and friends” also if they don’t do a good job please find someone who does. Please also encourage collaboration and reduce gossiping and siloed departments. Make people feel like they are valued at the bottom, not just the top. Finally, keep work life balance consistent and listen to your people!!!!

    Engaging, dynamic, technologically current, culturally sound. I like the people and the work that we do. United around a common mission.

    Cons

    No major issues that need addressing. If there weren't problems to be solved or issues to handle, I would be out of a job.

    From the CEO down, the organization is very focused on employees. They frequently recognize the impact of employees on the organization and reward employees accordingly.

    Flexible Schedules, Decent Pay, Good benefits

    Cons

    Any down quarter has turned into a large scale lay off for several departments. Leadership is terrible!

    I have been working at Horizon Therapeutics full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Horizon’s portfolio of medicines are very unique and there are no generic substitutes. Horizon does a great job of acquiring and launching new medicines that solve an unmet need. 20 PTO days, sick days and vacation are combined into one time off bucket. Year end shutdown, one week in December.

    Cons

    Needs to have a more robust management trainee program, to foster the next person up approach when leadership positions become available. Hiring District Managers from outside the organization may not be the most effective strategy, since Horizon’s go to market approach is so proprietary. Pay raises structure needs to be restructured. The income earning potential is not as rewarding as it has been in the past. The...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve the compensation plan, to insure that is truly uncapped. Restructure how pay raised are earned at the Territory Manager level. Analyze how Presidents Club is achieved, maybe Territory Managers need to compete by region. Continue to make it a priority to promote form within.

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

    Pros

    Flexible working environment, and most people are friendly. Patients are put first, especially in rare disease area.

    Cons

    With growth comes challenges, especially when there is a lack of business processes. Senior management is way into the weeds, and non-critical decisions are made at very high levels. Ultimately, this makes employees question their purpose.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to trust that employees are capable of doing their jobs, and empower decision-making to the appropriate level. If this isn’t done, good employees will leave.
