    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at WebMD Health as a contractor

    Pros

    Smart professionals are friendly and have a can-do spirit. Calm, quiet, no-drama atmosphere. Reasonably flexible on work schedule, time off, etc.

    Cons

    Of course there's a lot of competition for these jobs; you need to be good at what you do. And you need to look at everything from a Western (allopathic) medicine perspective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Knowledge and training are valuable. Keep more employees on as regular employees instead of using so many contractors.

    Pros

    Work life balance, exciting technologies, nice office

    Cons

    Stiff executive management, benefits are so-so, lots of pressure from executive management but lack of acknowledgement for good work. Office culture varies office to office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more fun to the workplace where people are working as hard as they are. More engagement and acknowledgement to the work horses below.

    Pros

    Good place to start a career & get the company brand name on your resume.

    Cons

    I recommend leaving after no more than two years; chances of promotion are low and salaries are lower than industry standard. There is a great deal of incompetence in middle management.

    Great place - years ago

    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexible company that valued families and didn't pressure you for running home to get the kids or to care for a sick loved one.

    Cons

    Promotional opportunities were rare and at the time it was who you knew, not how well you performed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people that connect with users. And keep your integrity. It's OK to say no to an advertiser that could damage the hard earned credibility the company still holds.
