I have been working at WebMD Health full-time

Pros

Great consumer brand, exciting industry space with a lot of growth potential

Cons

layoffs in 2012 and lots of turnaround type activities. staff very overworked. leadership vision is not entirely clear. extremely difficult to get things done

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It takes ridiculously long to get anything approved by execs and moving forward. Vision of company is not entirely clear. Lots of rhetoric and change initiatives coming from folks on high who don't understand what it is like for the folks in the trenches.

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

    Pros

    Learned a lot from some very talented, passionate, and intelligent people; free bagels on Friday.

    Cons

    Sweatshop mentality; paranoia and disrespect are pervasive; if you work here, you are not happy. If you are happy, then you just put in your resignation notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You desperately need to improve the corporate culture if you hope to retain the talent. Encourage (instead of discourage) interdepartmental relations. Show people that there is more than the assembly line of work --- that there is a reason to strive for better. Make procedural changes that take into account the actual people who will be implementing them! Address insubordination and disrespect.

    Pros

    Peers are highly talented individuals that when allowed to be creative can prove the brand deserves its recognition.

    Cons

    Way too much politics to get anything done. Management looks at employees as threats and problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Save your brain-trust. They got you to where you are in this industry.
