Great company to work for
Quality Control Manager, Sales (Former Employee) – Wilmington, DE – January 15, 2013
For short-cycle home product sales, (HVAC, home improvements, etc.), it is as good a company to work for as you are going to find in the tri-state area. My coworkers were friendly, the sales management group is excellent, and there isn't a whole lot of red tape.There was a lot of room to grow and management had a hands-off approach which allowed me to grow my position more than at other companies I had worked for, and my work performance excelled as a result of that freedom.
Unfortunately, while I excelled at my job, I did not excel at office politics (which are rife at Horizon). Performance takes a back seat to vertical management, and there were suspicious personnel decisions made that seemed like they had nothing to do with business. In retrospect, my advice would be to simply suspend disbelief at poor management decision-making rather than attempt to seek answers (you won't get any and if you push too far it could cost you your job).
great pay, benefits, not a lot of micromanagement
hr was terrible, lot of back-stabbing/office politics
