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

Pros

Location is easy to get to from most of the bay area
Nice coworkers. (Developers, Finance, SEO, etc)
Laid back work environment

Cons

People only follow management out of shear curiosity.
Low salaries.
Hires LOTS of H1B Visas at a LOW income just to fill up the engineering team. CTO feels that he is successful based on number of underlings, not quality of work.
VP of engineering is just a coder who manages a few people. Knows VERY little of how to manage people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Leave! Hire a new management team who know the industry.

    Healthline perfects the outdated business model of CPM arbitrage.

    I have been working at Healthline

    Pros

    Healthline received several rounds of venture capital and employees can skate by without doing any real work because the exec team is clueless.

    Cons

    Exec team has zero focus on any real business objectives. There is no business model other than CPM arbitrage. Average age of the exec team is over 50, and no one above the manager level has any knowledge of the internet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourselves and save the board some much needed capital. Hire replacements that actually understand the internet. Stop convincing yourselves that the company will make it because the venture capital is almost gone.
