If you are a person with good ideas, take them elsewhere.

Pros

If you negotiate a bit, you might get paid better than average.
Free bottled water.

Cons

Everything else.

Management DOES NOT listen to ideas, which is extremely frustrating when you have some that could potentially help to fix a sinking ship. Everyone likes to throw around the word "innovate," but no one seems to actually know what it means. Your ideas will be ignored by upper management, and they will continue to recycle the same old approaches that worked 10 years, praying they will continue to work today. Guess what? They won't, and that's why the company is failing.

This culture is extremely demoralizing. All the talented employees are simply biding their time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of all of the upper management and replace them with people who listen, care, are present, and actually know the industry.

    Pros

    Great brand, interesting work, great location in midtown, a lot of exceptional people, a good learning experience, pretty good salary and benefits

    Cons

    Bad management (really bad), chronic disconnect between NY and ATL. And over the last year or so, way too many secrets and lies. The new "leadership team" does little to inspire confidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retool for longterm growth and success, and invest in employees. Focus on core strengths, support tech advancement, and quit getting distracted by shiny objects.

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are very good, taking crazy, half-baked ideas and creating reasonable products or services out of them.

    Cons

    Management had no long-term plans, always wanting to do the short-term fix with duct tape and baling wire, so they could meet Wall Street's expectations for the quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look long and hard at the business, develop short- and long-term plans, and treat staff with respect.
