Demoralizing, poorly organized company, that has no vision of what to do

I worked at WebMD Health as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Fresh fruit in the office every day. Good location. Good pay.

Cons

Very poorly structured office. Impossible to do impactful work as most of your time is spent fixing tiny problems. There is no technical vision and employees spend a lot of effort in passing problems over to other departments than in getting problems solved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructure the company so that teams are cross-functional and people actually have ownership of the projects they are working on. Bring in a CIO and a data architect. Also when terminating a contract early, give the contractor reasonable notice that funding has changed.

    Huge salary discrepancies, terrible management, rampant sexism, poor benefits, little paid time off, total inability to be heard, make changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, realize what they do, and be willing to make changes. Become literate in media and change corporate culture to match that of similar companies.

    Pros

    As long as you get your stuff done (and done well!), you can come and go as you please.

    They have unrealistic expectations and not the greatest people in charge

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of middle managers that have been there way too long and aren't successful
