Avoid at all costs
Editor (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 26, 2019
Terribly managed company that only creates content to sell ads for big pharmaceutical brands but models itself as a media company following the 'self care' and 'wellness' trend. Avoid at all costs if you want to advance in your career or be managed by people with experience.
Pros
Dogs allowed in office.
Cons
Inexperienced leadership, poor communication from the top down, workers don't get paid properly, misinformation campaigns rampant throughout the offices.

Healthline Networks
Marketing Manager (Freelance) (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 25, 2017
A group of very dedicated marketers with a great vision for helping users find health-related information in unique ways. Very forward thinking company, not a lot of hand holding but provided a very good forum for questions and opinions that can help move processes and projects forward.

I worked there only on a part-time basis, so I wish I could have experienced life there as a full timer, but I would recommend Healthline to anyone how is serious about working with first-class people as one of the leaders in the space.
Pros
Great leadership, extremely knowledgeable team

Flexible schedule, no job security
Freelancer (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 10, 2017
Like any telecommute job, the good thing is you have your own hours and don't have to come in person, and the bad thing is the income is inconsistent every month, and you might lose the job at any moment (like what happened to me). This only applies to the freelance positions though.

Respiratory therapy is an excellent career
Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) –  Decatur, TXNovember 27, 2016
Being a Respiratory therapist is a very rewarding and exciting job. There are many responsibilities and even more reward. It is very satisfying to know at the end of everyday that you have helped to improve someones quality of life. I enjoy being a therapist very much and it is an excellent career. However; is not an industry that allows for business ownership or schedule flexibility.

It's a content mill
Editor (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAApril 28, 2016
There is that usual start-up propaganda that they are making the world a better place, that they are doing some great social good, but really they're churning out keyword-heavy content that basically already exists elsewhere, in order to game search engines and sell pharmaceutical advertising. Don't be fooled that there is anything fundamentally generous or altruistic about it.

People generally nice in that cookie-cutter SOMA way. Management was really not very responsive, receptive, or capable of changing assumptions. It was also oddly backward in terms of adapting to emerging platforms or doing much of any innovation in terms of publishing and distribution.
Pros
Pays decent. Not outright evil.
Cons
Lacks creativity or agility

Fast growing company with some good people
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 15, 2015
The company has potential to grow and the recent changes (splitting Talix from media group) is generally regarded as positive.

There are mix of skillful/well-seasoned engineers and a little sloppy developers as usual. Overall atmosphere is OK but sometimes, you mat feel boring when too many maintenance type of works are dumped on you.
Pros
good potential
Cons
not much challenge

Good co-workers, management could definitely improve!
Senior Search Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CADecember 29, 2014
I was lucky to have a good team of co-workers at this company.

I learned to juggle multiple projects; got to interact with clients one-on-one at times, after I assumed a senior role. Developed good communication skills with peers and managers. And definitely got to do enough JAVA coding to know the best coding practices, and meet project deadlines.

A typical day at work would start at 10 am for me. I would prioritize my work and fix bugs off the queue. Having been in this company for over 4 years, and now being a senior developer, I also had to wear the manager's hat at times, triaging bugs and assigning them to devs. Not all the pieces that I took on, were client specific. Some of it was also Healthline's own Search R&D work, that I could contribute to. On an average, I would work standard 8 hour days, typically leaving office by 6.30 pm.

The hardest part of this job though, was trying to fathom the expectations of the higher-ups, as some deadlines would be as short as 2 business days, with no documentation or specification of the project scope. Developers' patience would really be put to test at such times; in some teams (at least mine), the chief tech-lead, would expect our team to live up to some unrealistic deadlines, entailing working over the weekend. There is less appreciation and respect for the developers, for the amount of time and hard-work that they put in.

The most enjoyable part of this job, was good peers to work with. I met some of the smartest people here at Healthline.

Uphill battle
Manager, Information Technology (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 8, 2012
No real management. The hardest part of this job was explaining exverything you did , in detail, in layman's terms, repeatedly, to different managers and "directors". COO is also the CFO and is also the President, who is constantly battling technology (sans trying to turn a Linux/Windows environment into a Mac shop, solely because he "doesn't like Microsoft...") and loves to micromanage the most minute expense.
