Can't complain when you're just grateful to have a job; Great team members to work with; Great NYC location

Computer Programmer (SQL Programmer/Data Analyst) (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsPart of a SMART highly specialized team; Team members worked toward a common goal and put in their hours; Direct managers (laid off as of this writing in 2013) were reasonable to work with; HQ is located in the awesome Chelsea neighborhood; Can't complain with the total compensation (including yearly bonus) especially during the good years (prior to 2012); 10 company holidays (including Friday after Thanksgiving); Early dismissal on Fridays prior to long holiday weekends. Enjoyed the good years prior to 2012.

ConsTeam was expected to put in extra hours (late or weekend) beyond the typical 9-5 schedule especially during deployment; No comp days or overtime salary paid if and when you put in more than 45 hours/week; No summer Fridays (as of writing in 2013); Part of a smart highly specialized team that was embroiled in politics; Higher-ups didn't realize the high performance value the team I was part of to the company; Previous CEO didn't have a plan to make the company sustainable beyond 2012 and took the golden parachute. Challenging years ahead in 2013.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a pay cut yourselves and give your share (better yet, ALL) of your bonuses to the employees left behind in 2013.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Director (Former Employee)

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Great employee atmosphere...strong brand name... Cons: Internal processes take far too long to get answers for clients.
