"More changes needed, current status not sustainable"

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

Pros

On the right track, made some right decisions and has good intentions

Cons

More needs to be done for middle and upper middle management. C-level executives/SVPs are indeed trying to get company on track and groth path, but the next level still works on nepotism and political gains rather than objectives. Unfortunatelyt thye were the decision makers for the last actionable step towards growth path, so they were not impacted at all.

Advice to Management

Find out ways to identify and weed out nepotism.

    Pros

    People are great
    A lot of employee perks
    Great cake days

    Cons

    Too many cliques and advancement falls in line with who you're friends with
    Needs process improvement. They are still operating like they are a start-up

    Advice to Management

    Avoid promoting people purely based on cliques and who you like. While personality is a big thing, there were qualified, well-skilled, personable, professional people who left because they weren't given the opportunity...even when they asked for an opportunity to prove themselves and help the company. WebMD will fail based on this model.

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally great people working at the ground level. You'll become an adept at creating "something out of nothing" and keeping your cool in extreme situations. Some interesting products and projects. Free coffee.

    Cons

    I must solidly repeat the cries of cronyism that have been cropping up in the last few reviews. Do not ever expect to be treated fairly. Favoritism is shown toward those who can play politics and cliques well, which is forcing talent away at a rapid pace. After the layoffs there are still too many on staff who play CYA games instead of contributing to the company.

    Advice to Management

    If you have any love for your people or even just the stock prices - please clear out the bad seeds and at least some of the politics and nonsense. Let people do their work without jumping through so many hoops. I have never seen a place that makes it so hard to perform a job.
