    Pros

    There are very strong employees there who are great to work with.

    Cons

    Management doesn't value WebMD Health Services. It is managed and budget controlled by executives who don't know or understand the business as they work for another part of the company.

    There is little investment in WHS. You will not have much room or ability to bring in modern or needed products and solutions to make a difference.

    WHS is managed as a cost center to keep costs minimal. There is little effort to solve problems with financial support. Instead employees will be asked or it will be implied that they have to cover multiple roles instead resourcing projects and efforts normally.

    The people who control the budget rarely if ever actually visit the WHS office so they make decisions based on little personal knowledge of the business.

    Advice to Management

    You need to invest in WHS like it is a startup and keep it modernizing quickly to compete. You will lose market superiority otherwise.

    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), AND free fresh fruit. Seriously, this place is amazing and I've loved every minute so far.

    Cons

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

    I have been working at WebMD Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Generous time off; flexibility to explore other roles/responsibilities.

    Cons

    There's a lot of potential for what we could do, but there's high turnover and not much alignment in leadership. It's improving, slowly.

    Advice to Management

    If you build it, they will come. Focus on what we're good at instead of wasting resources on one-off solutions. Trust each other. If you have them, trust and empower direct reports to do their jobs. That is, after all, why you hired them.

    Pros

    Very attractive open office space, some really nice people. Free cereal and fruit. Weights. Decent but pricey daily meal selections. Free coffee. Windows can be seen from most desks. People below management are good people.

    Cons

    Recent take over has killed the vision, integrity, quality, trust, morale and culture of this once-great company. They boost morale through silly fake efforts like free cheese and seminars, when the best path to good morale is not selling out.

    Advice to Management

    Stop destroying a fantastic and reputable organization strictly for greed. This is tragic!

    Pros

    Great Brand and excellent content

    Cons

    Very political with management and account structures. I had 10 managers over 4 years. One of the higher managers is verbally abusive and very unprofessional. He is not being held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the sales team and be willing sell as well, instead of being critical all the time.
