I have been working at WebMD Health

Pros

Free water and coffee, plus a laptop.

Cons

They let go people who actually made a difference in the company while keeping dead weight around just because of $. Terrible raises this year too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Before letting people go, why don't you find out what they actually do for the company first?

    I have been working at WebMD Health

    Pros

    People are great
    A lot of employee perks
    Great cake days

    Cons

    Too many cliques and advancement falls in line with who you're friends with
    Needs process improvement. They are still operating like they are a start-up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid promoting people purely based on cliques and who you like. While personality is a big thing, there were qualified, well-skilled, personable, professional people who left because they weren't given the opportunity...even when they asked for an opportunity to prove themselves and help the company. WebMD will fail based on this model.
