    Pros

    Nothing like working at the biggest and best brand among health sites. Credibility with its users and advertisers is something to be truly proud of....content is in fact truly king for this brand.

    Cons

    Doctors and Finance run this site. Sales and Marketing to the ad community comes in third. Slow at times to react to market forces. Classic big company, nimble is not a word often associated with sales.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the market. Get entrepreneurial in your approach with advertisers. Get innovative. You do so much right in building a brand for users, do the same for advertisers.

    Nice office space, respected brand

    Company places too much emphasis on sales and pharma clients, not enough on innovation and risk taking. Site traffic decreases more and more each quarter

    Fix your identity crisis, move forward and take some risks

    Pros

    Great work life balance, nice people, awesome office. Overall a good place to work. You can be the best by coming in on time, doing your work and being somewhat competent.

    Cons

    Not a real tech company. WebMD is the bad news bears of technology. A lot of people here just plain BAD at their job. Some of the code makes my eyes bleed.

    Pros

    Great to place to learn what not to do. Do bad and you'll fit in. Do well and you'll be spread thin.

    Cons

    Communication between departments is lacking. Managers only portray power without true leadership. Managers do not lead by example but set expectations so high, they don't remember setting them.

    Advice to Management

    Wipe the slate and start fresh. Managers that tell you not to talk to them about your job is a true sign they don't belong in that position.
