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 Management

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 (More than 5 years)

    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 Management

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

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many of the people at WebMD have great untapped potential. The Atlanta office is friendly and very "together" as far as getting things done. The project-level folks at New York office were also very good to deal with and competent. With very few exceptions a great bunch to work with.

    Cons

    Actually working here can be claustrophobic and chaotic. It is generally very difficult to move forward on project work here due to many of the product and project managers being forced to play CYA with a handful of VPs. There are product people who are trying to code or admin. There are VPs who are not focused on leading their respective groups but trying to be far too hands-on with day-to-day work. Comany desperately needs leadership, but because of the above factors I do not think that the leadership will coalesce easily. They are busy with petty distractions and that needs to change.

    Advice to Management

    This is a fairly large company, it needs to grow up. Let the people you hire to do a job actually do that job. They really do want to help you become a more successful company if you let them.
