Good company, Tough times

Former Employee - Group Account Director in New York, NY (US)
Former Employee - Group Account Director in New York, NY (US)

I worked at WebMD Health full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The product for end-users is very good -- both consumers and medical professionals. Most people are good, as are many in management.

Cons

The growth has flattened and the ad products are no longer as competitive as they had been -- especially an issue on the consumer side. Sales-driven culture with the pros/cons that come along with that. Restructuring now -- hopefully things are bottoming out.

    Pros

    Part of a SMART highly specialized team; Team members worked toward a common goal and put in their hours; Direct managers (laid off as of this writing in 2013) were reasonable to work with; HQ is located in the awesome Chelsea neighborhood; Can't complain with the total compensation (including yearly bonus) especially during the good years (prior to 2012); 10 company holidays (including Friday after Thanksgiving); Early dismissal on Fridays prior to long holiday weekends. Enjoyed the good years prior to 2012.

    Cons

    Team was expected to put in extra hours (late or weekend) beyond the typical 9-5 schedule especially during deployment; No comp days or overtime salary paid if and when you put in more than 45 hours/week; No summer Fridays (as of writing in 2013); Part of a smart highly specialized team that was embroiled in politics; Higher-ups didn't realize the high performance value the team I was part of to the company; Previous CEO didn't have a plan to make the company sustainable beyond 2012 and took the golden parachute. Challenging years ahead in 2013.

    Advice to Management

    Take a pay cut yourselves and give your share (better yet, ALL) of your bonuses to the employees left behind in 2013.
