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

No opinion of CEO

I worked at WebMD Health as a contractor (Less than a 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 Management

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.

    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.

    I have been working at WebMD Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Your coworkers. Specifically the team you are working within. - Ability to work from home. - Brand name on your resume. - Vending machines, water, and bagels.

    Cons

    - Not a true work/life balance considering that you end up working more than 9-5 and also on the weekend, multiple times of the year. You do not receive overtime pay. - Understaffed, leading to heavy workload and unrealistic deadlines for the remaining staff. - Stressful environment. Not good for your overall health, to be expected to work under stressful conditions for a long period of time. - Low morale. No true emotional investment. It's just a paycheck until something better comes along. - No faith in management. They keep saying things will get better and it has yet to. It keeps getting worse. - The company is stagnant. - There doesn't feel like any career advancement in this company. You're not learning any new skills that can be applied to future positions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the requests for the middle management for more staff. You cannot expect everyone to continue as is. It's not good for your employee's health.
