Data Specialist (Current Employee) – Herndon, VA – December 9, 2014
Working for Horizon Systems Corp. has been a wonderful experience. I've worked for HSC for 11 years: at first working part-time while in college, and now currently full-time. This is a telecommute position, which offers a flexible schedule and excellent benefits. I've become self-proficient with Windows systems, Microsoft 2010 suite, email, internet research and ArcGIS software. A typical day begins with logging into my workstation and checking in with my coworkers via Skype. I have a project list which is updated weekly, containing tasks, contract/project descriptions and deadlines. I then log-in to one or several virtual machines (VMs) on the company network and complete the tasks as directed. Every week we have company conference call or Webex meeting to discuss the progress of contracts. Additional meetings are held for training and other purposes. At first it was a challenge to work from home. However, it's taught me to be disciplined, self-motivated, manage my time and be organized.
Flexible schedule, 401k and disability benefits.
Uncertainty of work and inconsistent hours. Gaps between contracts.

Auditor (Former Employee) – Newark, NJ – October 2, 2017
I was at this job for 10yrs before I was laid off in June 2013. I have no complaints about this company. I was a claims auditor who recap overpayments or full payments that paid incorrectly. We were allowed to listen to music on headphones long as the job required was completed at the end of the day.
It was my first job and overall it was a decent job to get a little pay at that age

Home Health Aide/CNA (Former Employee) – Vandalia, OH – September 5, 2017
I was not happy with the job, the amount of stress it caused on my body, the pay was not enough for the time and type of work your doing. It's a necessary service that many people need and use but it just wasn't what I wanted to do. You don't get mileage and depending on the number of hours you want, you may have several clients. It's a lot of driving and clients will ask you to do things not in Care plan.
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – New Jersey – August 29, 2017
Horizon BCBS is a highly stressful job and very poor management. High turnover rate and people leave within 6 months to 1 year. You get health, dental, vision. Healthcare is extremely expensive for employee who work for the health insurance company. There are lower healthcare packages but (you get what you pay for) you only get 20 days of PTO. That includes sick vacation personal in one lump sum. Once you use it all and if you have to call out for an emergency if you have no days left you get terminated. ( use your days wisely)
on site gym facility, on site cafeteria
short breaks, micro management, stressful environment, high cost healthcare
I liked the work here at horizon, I worked in the cranberry NJ location that they have. The work was steady but not consistent, it was a temp job and I ended up having to take another assignment as this did not always provide me with a sufficient t check to take care of my household.
Quality Assurance Analyst (Current Employee) – Battle Creek, MI – August 16, 2017
Horizon is a great company to work for, they have a great future ahead of them as they continue to improve. They are currently at a CMMI maturity Level 3. They also have certifications for multiple ISO standards. The down side is that it is mostly contracting work, and while this is usually not a problem, Contracts do come to an end. Depending where the company is at when a contract ends, there may not be a position for you.
I liked it because it was fast paced work and you would never bored well I wasn't bored I liked what I did

Fisk Electric is a very old Electrical Contractor with division in most of the south, since it was acquired by Tutor Perini Corporation, it has been in decline as a business organization and much more so as an employer
Good place to work as a whole, certain management needs extensive help in learning how to deal with people. If you're looking for on going recognition and appreciation, be very selective on which department you choose.
No communication between departments, loss of pay regularly
Mail Sorter (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 10, 2017
It was a good company to work for but it was allowed to Fusion going on you never know what day to come in for work it have a set schedule . You never really had a set time when you was about to leave especially for the ones who do not have that on car who had to wait on other people.
