A lot of ups, downs, and uncertainty.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsFree Milk, Coffee, Tea, Fruit. .25 cent sodas, Cake Day, Flexible work schedule, Casual dress, subsidized parking, pre-tax, commuter benefits.

ConsLow morale, no sense of company direction, A lot of red tape in work flow and processes. Incompetent product managers. No User experience experts just graphics designers.
Archaic content management system. PCs instead of Macs.

Advice to Senior Management- Cut out the red tape in product design and development.
- Higher experienced User Experience Designers instead of crappy art directors and graphic designers.
- Start product design from wire frames and user experience analysis
- Rethink the company business model
- Set aside employees to manage current site and form a separate team to rebuild site from scratch on a new platform and a new content management system.
- Stop showing up late to the party. WebMD is 2 - 3 years behind rate of innovation.
- Stop building new products on top of wreck of a system
- Empower Engineers and developers to innovate instead of bogging them down with a million meetings a day with product/project managers who don't have a clue.

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

On certain teams there was the sense of "watch your back" and politic (aka suck… Advice to Senior Management: I hope there are some of you that still do care and will read the writing on the wall.
