    For health experts (freelance contributors) this is one of the most lucrative article/blog writing position out there.

    Great pay. Lots of content flexibility.

    Things may have changed since they acquired Health Central (this is how I started with Remedy Health).

    Pros

    Pretty decent mission (helping others be healthy), at least on paper. A lot of smart people in staff positions and middle management.

    Cons

    Uninspiring management, for the most part. Awful cubicle set up, with endless rows of cubicles. HR is a mess, with promised reviews never materializing. Disorganization and poor communication rampant. Top-heavy organization, with a bunch of VPs and directors running around, and not enough help in the trenches. Morale in NY office pretty bad, overall, with a lot of paranoia.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't promise what you're not going to deliver. Ditch some of the top people and devote resources to staffing up.

    Pros

    Great mission that is part of the business strategy
    Really nice and talented people including a CEO, CCO, and CTO who deeply care about their people
    If you like taking initiative then this will be Nirvana for you. Your initiative is noticed and appreciated
    Everyone is responsive and follow through is part of the culture
    Highly collaborative organization with a lot of idea sharing
    There are two main offices in Arlington and DC which keeps things interesting
    Very flat organization with pockets of smart people
    Very limited office politics, but a little cliquey, almost like high school
    Very supportive of employee goals and development needs
    You can take on too much as there are no areas that are off limits
    Even the sales guys are really nice!
    You can control your work life balance and won't be resented for it
    It feels personal, the passion that goes into the work and the interactions...not corporate-y but it also means it's harder to disconnect
    As far as location: there is a gym in the building that you can use for free (benefit). There are a ton of restaurants around, including a whole foods (major benefit) and a lululemon store (heaven!) There is a Yoga studio steps away and a pilates one as well. The health plan provides a subsidy for the gym membership if you want to take advantage of one.

    Cons

    The pros are also the cons. They are too risk averse in strategy which means we are a little more stable than your average startup but that also means the upside can be limited
    Compensation is a constant topic of conversation, it's abnormal
    Speaking of compensation, the pay is average at best
    There is no predefined career track, figure it out on your own
    The HR practices are a little archaic practices (think government consulting meets startup and the worst of both worlds)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. Take some risk on products just like you do on people

    I have been working at Remedy Health Media full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The work environment is positive, relaxed and fun, but senior management also takes work seriously and holds high standards and encourages career growth. As an employee in the editorial department, I am given the flexibility to produce a wide range of content, with the goal of making a real difference in people's lives. I believe that working for Remedy Health Media provides me with the opportunity to grow and expand my skill set, which will benefit both me individually and the company as a whole in the long run.

    Cons

    There is room for improvement when it comes to team building and setting and attaining department goals. I have not been employed here long enough to speak to compensation changes, but I hope that there will be room for growth in that area.

    Pros

    There are so many great things about Remedy. It is a small company so an employee your voice and opinion matters and your work directly impacts the company. The company culture is relaxed, fun, positive and creative while the work is innovative, challenging and evolving. The company thrives through teamwork and collaboration. Everyone is personable and the upper management, including the CEO, knows every employee by name and make the effort to know you on a personal level. The company motto is "real people, real results" and they really emphasize that in all we do. It is a fantastic and growing company.

    Cons

    Tight budget and lack of review/advancement process. New leadership in HR is working to better implement review process. Sometimes workload requires long work hours but it's totally worth it if you care about your work. Could use a little more transparency across departments. All cons are opportunities to grow and improve.

    I have been working at Remedy Health Media full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people I get to work with every day are fantastic! This is a small company where your ideas are heard and the CEO knows each and every one of us. One of the few places I have worked where I adore my work family.

    Teamwork is required here, if you like to work alone this is not the place for you. Lots of opportunity to move up within the company, great place to grow in a career.

    Cons

    Small company means some long hours, when a big project comes in everyone has to pitch in to help out and often that means taking on extra tasks and working longer hours.

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment where you're working around others who are really motivated and passionate about health. RHM is good to its employees too. The offices are in Arlington and Manhattan and is only continuing to grow. It's a bigger company but still small enough so that you can know everyone's name.

    Cons

    It's all about health information 24/7 & getting important and new health info out to consumers so if that's not something you're interested in RHM may not be the right fit.

    Pros

    No politics. Lots of positive support. Solid benefits. Good management. Exciting projects and products, very smart people. Lots of room for advancement for the ambitious. A career making kind of place.

    Cons

    Has a startup feel but I see it as a positive. No formalized corporate policies but that allows you to do it your way often. Budget is extremely tight but they know how to treat people right.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are great. Keep it up. You do make a difference.
