    "Biggest mistake ever"

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time

    Pros

    Friendly, at first, don't expect training

    Cons

    HR inept; expect unfair treatment if someone simply doesn't like you. You won't be judged by your work

    Advice to Management

    Look at turnaround rates. If it's high, the problem is likely you.

    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.

    Quit.

    Products that you can feel good about. Talented staff and a good environment.

    Years of underinvesting in the product has led to piles of technical debt and stagnating sales.

    Great benefits, perks, people. A company eager to advance.

    Cons

    It's a corporation born in the early days of internet playing catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep progressing! I loved my time at Web MD because of the way my director focused on advancing the digital business.

    Pros

    Great swag, free coffee, smart people (and opptys to work from home sometimes).

    Cons

    This is the headquarters of CYA thinking and behavior; favoritism is ripe, rampant and overt. The near-constant departures of some of the best minds is demoralizing.

    Every project is a crisis, so the quality of work is often poor -- but no one seems to care as long as it's off their desk and on someone else's.

    The burnout rate is incredible. Oh, and forget a career path (unless you're a favorite, that is).

    Supposedly client and consumer focused but fear and arrogance have kept it firmly behind the market.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the favoritism; improve the quality of your products; use some of that $1 billion in the bank to hire more people.

    Crazy work schedule. No sense of prioritization, everything is a fire-drill. Bad leadership.

    There was a lot of down town.
