Just as stated, it went from bad to worse!!

ProsI don't think there is much left

ConsThis company is about to turn into sweat shop. CEO and team keep iterating "innovation" but yet the workforce has been reduced tremendously on a already tight ship. The work for those left behind has probably doubled and they simply think that this is possible to "innovate" under those circumstance, it is very blatant that the new CEO never work in tech.

WebMD has no sense of employee retention, it must believe that it must be an honor to work for this brand. The company will have to ante up on the remainder of employees which pretty much has been the cream of crop or those with the most knowledge base because their workload has just double and the company has not mentioned any types of incentives to keep them around. A few will stick around to see if there will be some sort of compensation for the massive pressure placed upon them

The brand has much potential but unfortunately has been completely led wrong, if it doesn't get it right this time it may be the last straw. Not sure what happened but it used to be a fun company to be at. It turned from a sunny day into hurricane sandy. Not very excited about the future but miracles do happen on rare occasions maybe this will be one.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompensate and reward your employees, this is a tech company which requires a place of free thinking. You can't expect innovation or creativity when the talent is under constant pressure, unhappy, and poorly paid.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
