    I have been working at WebMD Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.

    Pros

    Pleasant environment, very smart co-workers that treat each other with respect. Nice office in a great location. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Priorities change at the drop of a hat and are sometimes unclear, which can be frustrating. Fast pace can get overwhelming when it seems like there's not a light at the end of the tunnel.

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I have ever worked with. I continue to learn from the people around me

    Cons

    Things changing so quickly there is little time to stop and reflect on the work you have done I just don't have the free time catch up with the work I have.

    Advice to Management

    Prune the priorities to maintain a realistic set of actions for the organization to accomplish

    Pros

    I thought the culture here was fantastic. There were a ton of A players, who were passionate about the space and the kind of work we were doing.
    Very much a place where you are given freedom to make the most of it.

    Cons

    Very entreprenurial, you have to pull from the organization what you want and need. It isn't always offered. ( this can be good or bad ).

    Advice to Management

    Since I left, it is very clear that management recognized the challenges ahead and took steps to figure out a path forward for success. Digital is ever evolving. Ensure you have your finger on the pulse of where digital is going in healthcare. I'd love to see real investment in R&D to try new product ideas and services out.
