No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Learned a lot from some very talented, passionate, and intelligent people; free bagels on Friday.

Cons

Sweatshop mentality; paranoia and disrespect are pervasive; if you work here, you are not happy. If you are happy, then you just put in your resignation notice.

Advice to Management

You desperately need to improve the corporate culture if you hope to retain the talent. Encourage (instead of discourage) interdepartmental relations. Show people that there is more than the assembly line of work --- that there is a reason to strive for better. Make procedural changes that take into account the actual people who will be implementing them! Address insubordination and disrespect.

    Pros

    Peers are highly talented individuals that when allowed to be creative can prove the brand deserves its recognition.

    Way too much politics to get anything done. Management looks at employees as threats and problems.

    Advice to Management

    Save your brain-trust. They got you to where you are in this industry.
