I worked at HealthTap for more than a year

Pros

-Had a noble mission about extending human life.
-Very smart co-workers
-A lot seemed to get done with minimal number of workers. They were efficient at squeezing out every last once of effort from the team.

Cons

-Management could be at times very condescending, interrupting people, dismissing ideas out of hand;
-As an intern, expect to get mindless assignments for which you are overqualified. Expect to get complicated/confusing instructions for assignments you spend days on, only to find out it was a useless assignment to begin with and not needed. They do not care about wasting your time. And they will likely not pay you.
-People keep leaving! Employee turnover is high. It's demoralizing.

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

    Pros

    * Hypersmart people and cross-disciplinary team with top education and professional backgrounds
    * A product that is saving lives and is universally useful to billions of people around the world. (Gives the work a sense of purpose)
    * A mission-drive, change-the-world kind of culture with people who want to build the next huge company
    * A team that has a proven track record of rapid execution

    Cons

    * Scaling comes along with growing pains. The company has an opportunity and need to define processes and infrastructure that will transform it from a startup (that sometimes has to be in firefighting mode) to a well-oiled machine
    * The office could use more private meetings spaces for phone calls and meetings. Probably will have to expand to a new space after the next round of hires

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Hire people with the right cultural fit -- self-starters, passionate about the mission, goals and deadline oriented, and those with a tolerance and enthusiasm for intensity in their work. The next batch of hires will be important in helping shape and scale the culture of the company.

    I have been working at HealthTap full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employees here are really awesome, hardworking, and talented. Lunches are provided a few days a week. Health insurance is pretty good.

    Cons

    There is no work-life balance, mandatory Sunday's, and pretty much everyone is at the beck-and-call of the CEO. People are so tired they fall asleep during team meetings. There is crazy high turnover. Benefits are not that great overall, there is no vision or dental insurance. Vacation days, and holidays are at the whim of the management team, so no one really knows what days are holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the well-being of the employees and trust that they will get the job done without having to be present in the office all hours of the day.
