    I worked at WebMD Health as a contractor

    Pros

    Smart professionals are friendly and have a can-do spirit. Calm, quiet, no-drama atmosphere. Reasonably flexible on work schedule, time off, etc.

    Cons

    Of course there's a lot of competition for these jobs; you need to be good at what you do. And you need to look at everything from a Western (allopathic) medicine perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Knowledge and training are valuable. Keep more employees on as regular employees instead of using so many contractors.

    Pros

    Very friendly, smart, dedicated colleagues. No one is looking over my shoulder. Liberal with work from home days. Competitive salary. Very little overtime. Office closes early the day before holidays. Demonstrated value of work-life balance. If you show that you are responsible within the scope of your job, it is recognized and appreciated...I feel like my managers want to make sure I have everything I need. My colleagues were always available to me as a resource when I was learning the ropes. Everyone I've dealt with is eternally polite, courteous, convivial, and friendly.

    Cons

    I have no complaints at this time. Absolutely none.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least in my department, PLEASE keep doing what you're doing. You make me want to come to work every day and I thank you.

    Pros

    I thought the culture here was fantastic. There were a ton of A players, who were passionate about the space and the kind of work we were doing.
    Very much a place where you are given freedom to make the most of it.

    Cons

    Very entreprenurial, you have to pull from the organization what you want and need. It isn't always offered. ( this can be good or bad ).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since I left, it is very clear that management recognized the challenges ahead and took steps to figure out a path forward for success. Digital is ever evolving. Ensure you have your finger on the pulse of where digital is going in healthcare. I'd love to see real investment in R&D to try new product ideas and services out.
