Pros

not much anymore, maybe free coffee and an office to go to

Cons

Company treats employees as kettle, keeps stating it wants to drive innovation but yet cut the actual workforce tremendously countering the intent. Workers stretched to over capacity BEFORE lay off, now severely reduced in talent and man power any type of innovation is questionable, remaining talent will have to pick up the additional work. Absolutely no type of incentives offered to employees remaining including, the standard yearly bonus or raises which more than likely have been cancelled as well, after months long endurance of severe stress and work conditions. The question currently lingering within the offices Laid off group may be actually the lucky group whereas those left behind will be subjected to more The last few positive reviews on Glassdoor are misleading and possibly posted by HR or top management for damage control quite evident as those trump the negative that bare a more accurate picture of the state company wide

Advice to Management

You just don't get it and you will most likely create more of the same old. How can innovation be considered top priority when the plan is to designate more work to a leaner staff who will be will be dedicated to simply finding ways to maintain the day to day with no room to pursue "new" initiatives. Be sure to retain the remainder of employees by displaying some type of gratitude or appreciation otherwise they will follow suit to those 250 removed from the roster.

    I have been working at WebMD Health full-time

    Pros

    Smart, innovative and creative people work(ed) here but any attempts at change are immediately hampered by middle management that simply don't understand the business or are threatened by new approaches.

    Cons

    Huge potential to exploit revenue streams not directly tied to declining Pharma dollars However, the recruitment of an "industry insider" CEO does not bode well for any approach other than that of doubling down on previous bad bets.. Employee morale is abysmal. Anyone who has an opportunity to leave (ie: the most talented employess) has left or has one foot out the door. By Q2 2013 this company will be full of mediocre resources at best. Actually heard an executive quote "content is king" in a recent meeting. What year are they operating in? Toxic culture that rewards managing up rather than managing the business.

    Advice to Management

    Cash out your options now....oh wait, you already did.
