    Pros

    Great co-workers, nice atmosphere, good location.

    Cons

    Very old style management (do as I say not.....), lack of coordination between critical departments such as Sales and Ops, Finance and HR, etc. Heavy political atmosphere especially since the sale of WebMD to KKR Investment Company - the jockeying for saving "my" job is in full swing . Once again layoffs loom at year end - just in time for the holidays...

    Advice to Management

    You need to provide stability to a loyal hardworking staff. Training is important. Stand up for your morals and values. Don't throw employees under the bus. Imp

    Pros

    Snacks if you aren’t allergic to nuts or lactose intolerant. Fresh fruit and barista bar.

    Cons

    Upper management is too involved in the little work (links and text). Talent is walking away because nobody is listening and employees are put last. 4 & 5 star glassdoor reviews are clearly fake with generic pro and cons. This should tell you how the company runs from the truth.

    Advice to Management

    IB should replace upper management completely, none of them have clear vision for the company unless it is a self-serving reason. Limit the number of tiers in management to allow communication to flow between departments. Stop yelling at people, they aren’t slaves. Nobody wants a dictator, but they do need leaders.

    Pros

    Nice company atmosphere, very casual, lots of small in-office perks

    Cons

    Few opportunities to advance yourself and your career, management very slow to accept suggestions for change, some employees linger, even when no longer assets to their teams.

    Pros

    Free food & infused water. Great office (space & location). Company name on your resume will get you attention from recruiters.

    Cons

    Upper management is horrible. Mediocrity is rewarded here, especially if you are in the "cool" cliques of the office. No real training, no real path for growth, & huge lack of respect from upper management. Watch out for sly & dishonest coworkers & upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Find upper management who actually want to do their job & train their staff. Don't trust anyone- being thrown under the us is a regular occurrence at WebMD. Don't be fooled by the high pay- it's not worth it.

    Pros

    Great office. Nice People.

    Cons

    Managers and supervisors are cliquey and clueless. No real training. Office politics. "Do as I say & not as I do"- type attitude from upper management. No real path for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being hypocritical, train your new employees, & stop taking your employees for granted.
