    Do not apply if you like communication

    Former Employee - Manager in New York, NY

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive Salary. friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Managerial communication skills are poor
    Organizational changes are frequent and poorly communicated
    Upper management is heavy. Practically everyone is a director or manager (regardless of whether or not they have direct reports)
    Teams are spread too thin so getting attention from other teams is fairly impossible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to you employees. See what they need. Become an advocate for your reports. Push for headcounts and encourage interdepartmental communications

    Great Benefits and Perks But Still Acts Like StartUp

    I worked at WebMD Health

    Pros

    WebMD is pretty good at promoting Work-Life Balance and is always looking for ways to give employees perks, additional time off, company gatherings and a sense of community.

    Cons

    WebMD is held back by changing priorities, fire drills, and not much communication on vision that trickles down to the worker bees.

    Pros

    Good place to start a career & get the company brand name on your resume.

    Cons

    I recommend leaving after no more than two years; chances of promotion are low and salaries are lower than industry standard. There is a great deal of incompetence in middle management.

    Account Executive

    Former Employee - Account Executive in Portland, OR

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My immediate manager was great; working for a company with a good reputation helped open doors in a new sales situation.

    Cons

    The company rested on its laurels; it's best days were behind it. As such, it was afraid to innovate and bring new products to market. The technology platform was old and the company refused to invest in it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look forward, not backwards, and improve the operating platform and the product line-up.
