Pros

Real opportunities to effect change and process that will contribute to the company's continued rate of growth. Collaborative work environment with a team of dedicated professionals who want the company to succeed.

Cons

The company is achieving success on so many levels that it can sometimes be difficult to address each and every opportunity. Which priority is the first among equals?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

We compete, not so much against an opponent, but against ourselves. The real test is this: Did I make my best effort on every play?

    Company with real IP and ability flounders due to poor leadership and execution.

    I worked at Healthline

    Pros

    Good company with a nice life work balance. Dogs are encouraged. Get out of work at a decent hour. Socialize with co-workers is encouraged. The company has real intellectual property that can be leveraged -- is being leveraged -- and can make a difference in consumer's lives. The staff is now leaner after a series of layoffs and the head of product -- a nightmare -- is gone. If people can help company focus on a few things then the company can make some money and become a greater force in the business. Oh, the offices are pretty nice and convenient location.

    Cons

    It is a cult of personality of CEO who thinks he knows EVERYTHING. He's a good guy, but not an operator and mingles in everybody's business, changes forecasts on his own, does not respect any chain of command.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Push CEO to a sales/company spokesman position, hire a real president, and run the business like a business.

    I have been working at Healthline full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    decent work-life balance, relatively small so nimble and leaves the opportunity to jump in and make changes without the bureaucracy often found in larger corporations, generally folks are nice to work with though don't get too attached as the turnover rate is crazy, snacks in the kitchen.

    Cons

    senior management is pretty awful when it comes to innovative and forward thinking, often shoot first, aim second. weak management often giving subpar or inadequate direction. most lower level employees see healthline as a starting point or as a paycheck, creates severe complacency. this company is still stuck in the 90's in terms of innovation although they'll tell you otherwise. pretty sad health benefits for a "health" company, and pay is generally on the lower level of scale per position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees, many great ideas out there. do a better job of fostering communication. pay just a little more competitively to keep good talent. offer benefits such as outside workshops, classes, etc. to keep your staff motivated in such a dry field (healthspace).
