I worked at WebMD Health full-time

Pros

The location was terrific! Being in the midst of Midtown is like no other working experience. The benefits are decent, and the working hours are flexible.

Cons

Inept senior-level management; favoritism between senior-level management and lower-level employees, regardless of their inability to complete simple tasks that generate revenue. This type of treatment harbors resentment amongst those who do a great job, but are overlooked in favor of the Best Friends Club.

Advice to Management

WebMD has had 3 different CEOs within two years. As a company, they lack vision, and no one knows what the company wants to accomplish, or what it wants to be.

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time

    Pros

    Good work-life balance most of the time, somewhat flexible schedule with some WFH, skilled contributors, everybody in Atlanta office is very nice. Projects are enjoyable when NYC is not involved. Still a good brand somehow.

    Cons

    Technical stack is a joke and no one seems interested in taking meaningful action to improve it

    Too many cooks in the kitchen. Execs are detached from day-to-day and swoop in at the end of projects to add input of questionable value. NYC PMO and engineering culture constantly throws their own people under the bus.

    Atlanta is a satellite office and is frequently shut out of decision making

    Advice to Management

    Restore autonomy Atlanta engineering and project management had a few years ago, reporting to NYC isn't working. Or move those groups to NYC.

    Executives need to trust their people and get out of their way.

    Burn down the technical stack and start fresh.
