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

Pros

There are some really sharp people here, pleasure to work with. Relaxed environment, no rush on anything. Flexibility in terms of time off, remote work (not a policy, but allowed if you have a doctor's appointment in the mid day or something similar to that). Technology is up to date, and they are pretty good in staying that way. Company provides you with desktop, laptop, mobile phone and 4G card.

Cons

Some managers are simply not listening to you. Hard to get the ideas through. Promotions are given to those who stay long rather to those who deserve them. If you want a match-to-market raise - impossible. Yearly raises/bonuses are a joke. It looks like people get compensated very differently, some managers are paid less then people who report to them. Some senior developers are paid much more then others. Workspace is horrible if you are a new hire. They give you quarter of a cube (even if you are perm).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being afraid of pushing things through (new ideas of team members, raise requests, etc).

    I have been working at WebMD Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Talented people
    - Employees are great (excluding leadership)
    - recognized and respected brand
    - somewhat flexible

    Cons

    - Lack of real leadership
    - Company politics dominate the business (decreasing stocks paint the picture)
    - Lots of empty promises to employee with no growth
    - Most competent individuals are usually always on the bottom of the totem pole and the most incompetent are the leaders and management
    - Seen the company nose dive tremendously, mainly due to what majority of other reviews point out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the individuals that created the brand (employees), if you don't wake up especially after this huge drop, you will lose the market share and lots of good people that drive the brand. Management doesn't needs to update their mentality and understand to plan for the future and not plan backwards

    Pros

    Young and fun employees with a good work ethic.

    Cons

    Speaking strictly about the Medscape (Professional) side of the business: The business lacks established and efficient processes to successfully function. As a result mistakes happen all the time and the goal is to hide the mistake from the client and point fingers internally instead of finding the root of the problem and solving it on a larger scale. Many departments are also lacking sufficient human resources, forcing people to be overloaded and rush through their work, sacrificing quality for quantity.
