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

    Pros

    There are some good people who are incredibly talented and passionate about their work. Beautiful office, free coffee, expresso machines and healthy snacks.

    Cons

    Horribly managed, no clue to business strategy or how to run a business, nor do they even care. Very unstable for longevity, hiring or anyone's career regardless of what is sold to people. Proof is in the financials and the stock, as well as the layoffs that are happening across the board. Dog eat dog work groups... one will stab you in the back for their next promotion or just kudos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of laying off the actual people doing work, get rid of the toxic heavy weight and liability senior management. This is a lawsuit waiting to happen. All the great talent is being heavily recruited to other places, leaving you with the bottom of the barrel for a reason.

    Not innovative, not efficient, not a place you want to be

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

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, including work-from-home opportunities
    Free coffee and bottled water
    Personal laptops are decent

    Cons

    In a word: Bloated.

    -- Top heavy! Everyone is a VP or a Director or a Senior Blahblahblah. Too many people who like to hear themselves talk. You will go to meetings all day every day, but nothing every gets done.
    -- No willingness from management to innovate or even entertain ideas from staff.
    -- Completely inefficient processes across the board, which can be frustrating, to say the least.
    -- Many staff who will not question why they are doing things that don'e make sense, and will outright resist any attempt to improve upon processes, likely because they do nothing of importance live and in fear of losing their jobs because of it.
    -- Compensation can be decent, if you come in high. Annual raises are downright laughable.
    -- Stock options are now worthless. Thankfully I never exercised mine.
    -- No attempts by management to retain quality employees, which reflects in the overall attitude (everyone seems to just be collecting a paycheck and biding their time, not really caring).
    -- I could go on, but why bother? I just don't care anymore.
