    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.

    I worked at WebMD Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally great people working at the ground level. You'll become an adept at creating "something out of nothing" and keeping your cool in extreme situations. Some interesting products and projects. Free coffee.

    Cons

    I must solidly repeat the cries of cronyism that have been cropping up in the last few reviews. Do not ever expect to be treated fairly. Favoritism is shown toward those who can play politics and cliques well, which is forcing talent away at a rapid pace. After the layoffs there are still too many on staff who play CYA games instead of contributing to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have any love for your people or even just the stock prices - please clear out the bad seeds and at least some of the politics and nonsense. Let people do their work without jumping through so many hoops. I have never seen a place that makes it so hard to perform a job.
