I have been working at WebMD Health

Pros

People are great
A lot of employee perks
Great cake days

Cons

Too many cliques and advancement falls in line with who you're friends with
Needs process improvement. They are still operating like they are a start-up

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Avoid promoting people purely based on cliques and who you like. While personality is a big thing, there were qualified, well-skilled, personable, professional people who left because they weren't given the opportunity...even when they asked for an opportunity to prove themselves and help the company. WebMD will fail based on this model.

    Pros

    Generally great people working at the ground level. You'll become an adept at creating "something out of nothing" and keeping your cool in extreme situations. Some interesting products and projects. Free coffee.

    Cons

    I must solidly repeat the cries of cronyism that have been cropping up in the last few reviews. Do not ever expect to be treated fairly. Favoritism is shown toward those who can play politics and cliques well, which is forcing talent away at a rapid pace. After the layoffs there are still too many on staff who play CYA games instead of contributing to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have any love for your people or even just the stock prices - please clear out the bad seeds and at least some of the politics and nonsense. Let people do their work without jumping through so many hoops. I have never seen a place that makes it so hard to perform a job.

    Good company, Tough times

    Pros

    The product for end-users is very good -- both consumers and medical professionals. Most people are good, as are many in management.

    Cons

    The growth has flattened and the ad products are no longer as competitive as they had been -- especially an issue on the consumer side. Sales-driven culture with the pros/cons that come along with that. Restructuring now -- hopefully things are bottoming out.
