    Pros

    Midtown office is cool, often have alcohol at parties, looks good on CV

    Cons

    Before you start here, PLAN YOUR EXIT STRATEGY.
    Toxic, stressful environment. Management actions do not match the talk. The public line of valuing employees and putting out good content does not match their actions. The absolute opposite of an agile nimble company. Constant compresion of normal project lifespan is made more difficult by constant revision of processes (management and internal teams constantly adding new tasks) yet management still wants material put out sooner and sooner. For the slightly higher than average salary you will be working constant over time, and the overtime increasing all the time. Management seems to have no interest in changing this.

    Advice to Management

    Prepare for an exodus

    Pros

    There are some amazingly skilled, talented and passionate people in this company. The team is the reason to show up everyday. You can learn a lot, and get real mentoring and experience there.

    Cons

    Senior Mgmt does not set out a real long-term vision for the company, leaving the departments responsible for their own visions - which often have competing ends and ROI. Conflicting priorities are often approved and pushed forward and even if it makes a department's job harder, they are still expected to meet their goals.

    Advice to Management

    Shareholder value should be a KPI not the only goal. Shape and hold the long term goals for the company, not the shareholders.

    Pros

    Awesome location
    Great people
    Get to work with content that really helps people

    Cons

    "No" is never an answer, quantity of work is valued over quality, communication is often lacking, processes non-existent or inefficient at best

    Advice to Management

    Maybe some training on how to manage before people are promoted to managers would help.

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    WebMD/Medscape gave me great opportunities. I worked with very talented, professional and fun people. I was allowed able to "shine" and work with using best skills for the company. The position and job duties were varied so I always felt challenged. I was given 100% support from my Senior and C Level executives. Excellent salary, benefits and time off. Executives were extremely intelligent and respectful. They gave quiet yet authoriative direction so the job got done. I advanced over the years to working across numerous divisions and departments of the company, so that was very awarding.

    Cons

    This was a great place to work, so I have no Cons for the job I held. The only Con is the same one that many businesses face, and that is the need to properly manage the fiscal side of business, which unfortunately results in the need to re-organize and cut "headcount" in order to save money.

    Advice to Management

    None
