    I have been working at WebMD Health full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great coworkers. Lots of very smart people. I wake up every morning excited to come into work. They treat you like an adult here. No one is watching the clock to see what time you come in (as long as you're not abusing that privilege :P) Tons of perks as well! AMAZING view of Portland, kick-ass barista robots that make you free coffee, and tons of cheap vending machine options (subsidized, so everything is around $.25-$.50),...

    I haven't had this issue, but I hear parking can sometimes be a problem.

        WebMD actively manipulates the lines between sponsorship profits and their ethical responsibility to consumers.

        Pros

        Majority are nice people just trying to do the best job they can while keeping a work-life balance.

        Cons

        Plenty of lifers who ascended to management roles through osmosis and never really got proper experience or training. This impacts the well-being and careers of those they manage. And, naive managers do all they can to hold onto their sense of power, and inflated salaries, so no real honest career oriented mindset to be found here. Rampant nepotism. A corporate takeover a few year ago eliminated many of the small perks...

        Pros

        Great benefits package. Starting pay was okay.

        Cons

        Work life balance could be better. Feels like a middle school. Micro management at its finest.

        Advice to Management

        Allow coaches more autonomy.

        Pros

        Convenient suburban location (Newtown Square)

        Cons

        Jobson Medical in Newtown Square runs through employees (esp. Meeting Planners) at an astonishing rate. They present a themselves as a professional organization, but they are anything but that. They have no respect whatsoever for employees... esp. Meeting Planners. If you have any degree of professional experience or self-respect, avoid anything to do with Jobson Medical. Addtionally.... poor/under-market salary...

        Advice to Management

        Management at the Newtown Square, PA location is too self-serving to appreciate any advice. As long as they keep their positions and keep churning through employees like used tissues, they are perfectly happy the way they are,

        Healthy food and snacks, nice people to work with

        Cons

        We just had our third round of layoffs since I joined the company. Management is just trying to sell company and there are more layoffs to come in the next 60 days. The company is own by an investment firm that does not have a long term view of the company. Most people I know here are already looking for new jobs...

        Advice to Management

        Be respectful of the employees you just laid off, they are human beings with families that deserve respect and care.

        Pros

        Friendly colleagues, flexible schedule, healthy snacks in office

        Cons

        - no support - no direction, no future, no real leadership - frequent lay offs - management is very secretive with no transparency - deliverables to clients are ALWAYS late making employees look incompetent - losing clients more and more - anticipate more layoffs to come

        Advice to Management

        My advice would be to stick with one idea and actually have plan to execute. There are a lot of smart people with great ideas but nothing ever comes out of it, and the company is always playing catch up being reactive and not proactive.

        Good place to be in as long as you are not part of the consumer team.

        Cons

        Very bad management, poor communication, lack of respect at work that lowers employees morale, and you have to work 24/7

        Nice people, healthy free food options, office location.

        Cons

        Poor leadership, all good employees are gone, zero strategy for years has left us in a bad spot and no growth, layoffs after layoffs. Critical tech knowledge has left with many good employees. It's running on a skeleton crew until Internet Brands can sell us, clients are leaving. Salary is sub-market, benefits are surprisingly sub par considering we are a Health company. The positive reviews are fake reviews by management,...

        Advice to Management

        There is no real management left anymore, poor leaders are left that have no clue what they're doing. Internet Brands acquisition and 'leadership' was the worst thing that could have happened to the Health Services division.
