Great benefits but expectations have gotten out of control
Health Educator (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 17, 2018
This company has some of the best benefits and work life balance i've seen. You get paid hourly and rarely work over 40 hours. You got tons of sick and vacation time. Not to mention they have some amazing benefits and perks. It just can't be beat.
However, call expectations have gotten so high that you are having to rush interactions with participants. When I first started here we could go into depth and have 15-20 minute conversations. Now, you have to rush through a 6-7 minute call just to make numbers. We seemed to be adding clients at a faster rate at the beginning and we seem to be losing them now. This has made for coaches turning into robots and not investing the time with people just to make numbers.
Brand new to corporate culture--tough time communicating
Administrative Assistant III (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 24, 2018
The parameters of my role were somewhat fluid as I was a kind of catch-all for the two SVP's and the teams I supported. That said, I felt that I had a lot of autonomy, but not a lot of communication or support/feedback on the work I was doing. I was paid under market value for my position. I learned a lot from the position, but I struggled to communicate with my managers about the expectations of my role.

When WebMD first hit the Internet, the pay was incredible. I made in a week what I was making in a month at other publications. That first year, I wound up with income tax problems. I eventually learned that start-up cash was virtually unlimited because the planning was for WebMD to become the nation's quickest prescription service in additional to carrying articles about health and medicine,
