    I have been working at WebMD Health full-time

    Pros

    Free Milk, Coffee, Tea, Fruit. .25 cent sodas, Cake Day, Flexible work schedule, Casual dress, subsidized parking, pre-tax, commuter benefits.

    Cons

    Low morale, no sense of company direction, A lot of red tape in work flow and processes. Incompetent product managers. No User experience experts just graphics designers.
    Archaic content management system. PCs instead of Macs.

    Advice to Management

    - Cut out the red tape in product design and development.
    - Higher experienced User Experience Designers instead of crappy art directors and graphic designers.
    - Start product design from wire frames and user experience analysis
    - Rethink the company business model
    - Set aside employees to manage current site and form a separate team to rebuild site from scratch on a new platform and a new content management system.
    - Stop showing up late to the party. WebMD is 2 - 3 years behind rate of innovation.
    - Stop building new products on top of wreck of a system
    - Empower Engineers and developers to innovate instead of bogging them down with a million meetings a day with product/project managers who don't have a clue.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some really great and talented people doing the actual work. Flexible, casual work environment

    Cons

    Absolutely no transparency into how projects are being mismanaged and inefficient. Work is getting done with people working almost 24/7 due to inefficient management of projects. Products are way behind in the field. Absolutely no career path in mind for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Scale down on the upper management and get more people in the trenches that know what is going on internally instead of on the stock market alone!
