I have been working at WebMD Health full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

There are some really sharp people here, pleasure to work with. Relaxed environment, no rush on anything. Flexibility in terms of time off, remote work (not a policy, but allowed if you have a doctor's appointment in the mid day or something similar to that). Technology is up to date, and they are pretty good in staying that way. Company provides you with desktop, laptop, mobile phone and 4G card.

Cons

Some managers are simply not listening to you. Hard to get the ideas through. Promotions are given to those who stay long rather to those who deserve them. If you want a match-to-market raise - impossible. Yearly raises/bonuses are a joke. It looks like people get compensated very differently, some managers are paid less then people who report to them. Some senior developers are paid much more then others. Workspace is horrible if you are a new hire. They give you quarter of a cube (even if you are perm).

Advice to Management

Stop being afraid of pushing things through (new ideas of team members, raise requests, etc).

    Pros

    Young and fun employees with a good work ethic.

    Cons

    Speaking strictly about the Medscape (Professional) side of the business: The business lacks established and efficient processes to successfully function. As a result mistakes happen all the time and the goal is to hide the mistake from the client and point fingers internally instead of finding the root of the problem and solving it on a larger scale. Many departments are also lacking sufficient human resources, forcing people to be overloaded and rush through their work, sacrificing quality for quantity.

    Pros

    Well known and respected online health brand
    Salaries are highly competitive
    Chelsea & Worldwide Plaza locations are in great neighborhoods

    Cons

    Management is a boys club, has little regard for staff
    Nepotism ensures that bratty, underqualified kids get employed before those who deserve it
    Brand is stagnant, desperately needs to be revived; current management is not equipped to do so
    Friction between internal teams is exacerbated by lack of management acknowledgement & communication
    Competitive nature of environment can be suffocating
    Poor benefits for a health focused company
