    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.

    Pros

    Always plenty of work to do.
    Open to doing things in new ways

    Cons

    Bad management
    Spent WAY too much on the new office space
    Upper level management is clueless

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. Your quest for an investor ruined a good company and has made the people who remain uneasy.
    My advice would be to stay away.

    I have been working at WebMD Health full-time

    Pros

    I truly enjoy some of my colleagues. There are a few people left who actually care about the company and want to do their best. There are many talented people, passionate people, who are not given an environment to thrive to their fullest potential.

    Cons

    Top level leadership has no vision, no strategy. We are pimped out to the highest bidder for every shiny new object that comes into somebody's mind.
    No business justification for taking on work, product team just says "yes" to everything. The product team is nothing more than order takers and they don't own, drive or innovate any of the products.
    People are not empowered, they are held down, held back. They are stifled.
    Crappy people are hiring clones of themselves further polluting the organization.
    Resistance to improvement or any kind of positive change. No learning opportunity, no growth.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and all middle management. Clean slate. New management who actually have the right experience and passion

    Pros

    Maybe 5 years ago there were good things to say.....

    Cons

    - Company is being sold
    -If you're an engineer then this is not a place for learning.
    -Not cutting edge
    -Managers are out for themselves and point fingers at there team and fire the employee rather questioning there own lack of management and direction

    Pros

    Cool office space & location; some smart people

    Cons

    The whole place was ruled by favoritism and working to the lowest common denominator. Leadership was by CYA and anyone who tried to really make positive strides forward was shot down hard. It was the most toxic and negative environment I had ever experienced in multiple decades in the workforce. Even with serious challenges presented to them, they were resistant to new ideas and VPs and up only seemed to like the folks who pandered to them instead of the ones who had actual ideas and experience to back it up.
    As a culture and what WebMD Health Services is all about, it gave nothing but lip service to it all. It did not cultivate its people in any way.

    Advice to Management

    Look out for the good of the company. That would change everything.
