Prior to the merger, multiple re-orgs, multiple rounds of layoffs, this was an amazing company. It had one of the best class of Director level managers in CS and truly cared about its employees. This was about 2 years ago. Today, it's all about the money for senior leadership and elevating titles for mid-level management. The product is selling the idea of well-being without offering the tools and resources to make it happen. Very difficult to demonstrate value, resulting in high customer churn.
Awful leadership in CS, especially at the VP/Director level. Only looking out for the business and not employees. Refuse to answer any questions directly and honestly. Lack of growth opportunities and low comparative pay. Will lie to your face in order to avoid conflict/confrontation.3

Fast pace, acceptable work life balance. Product and Tech leadership is clearly focused on customer retention and it shows in the product offering.
Reduction in force was sad. The company showed compassion during this process but it was sad to leave.1

Some of the brightest people I’ve worked with in my 15 year career.
Pay wasn’t great. Lots of DYKWIA scenarios. Poor culture if you’re outside Seattle. The writing was on the wall at the start of the year with the mass layoffs. Henry had to sell to make his millions along with the upper brass. Now it’s WebMD and the vision and product will eventually fade in the next few months. Just like Limeade bought Sitrion in 2018. Rinse and repeat.2

The leadership at Limeade appears to be out of touch with both their employees and end users, making it feel like a company built on a scam. Instead of delivering a tangible product, Limeade sells an intangible idea to potential customers, leading to long-term contracts with experiences or features that often fail to materialize. Unfortunately, only a few contracts end up being renewed due to this issue. The high turnover rate at Limeade in recent years has made it nearly impossible to complete any project, as changes in personnel and priorities occur frequently, causing projects to be indefinitely "paused" due to a lack of direction. Furthermore, Limeade's hiring of incompetent managers who prioritize pleasing their superiors over advocating for their teams' needs has resulted in an unpleasant work environment. My last manager was unresponsive to my career development needs and failed to follow through on nearly anything. Despite promises to improve processes and teamwork, nothing ever changed. While some managers have shown care for my team in the past, they have ultimately left due to a lack of trust in the company's leadership and an inability to make a difference. Limeade often makes promises about defining the company's direction and developing core product features, but in reality, they are merely reacting to the immediate asks of larger companies to avoid being dropped. In summary, Limeade's leadership fails to listen to their employees and end users, resulting in an environment that makes it difficult to complete projects and develop a sense of camaraderie among teams. Hiring incompetent managers further worsens the situation, making it a challenging place to work overall.11

Some good people, but most of them have left by now. A few good managers who seem to actually care about people.
Too much work, not enough people and too demanding to get it done all at once. No real leadership or decision makers. It's a completely dysfunctional place to work. Upper leadership acted like it cared about employees, but they really didn't and took the money and ran with the WebMD acquisition. Regular and mid-level employees (who did all the work to hold the company together for years) got nothing.4

It's a shame the company merged with WebMD. It had tremendous potential and a culture that couldn't be matched. WebMD will tear that apart. Limeade was a great company. Very flexible working hours, and subpar benefits.
WebMD purchased Limeade. That's the only con.3

- Clearly defined growth path in a competitive environment - Flexibility in schedule and opportunities to take on stretch opportunities - Awesome team of resilient people who continue to learn and grow amidst adversity and changer - Smartest team members I have ever had
Not really cons, but you won't thrive if you: - Do not handle change and adversity well - Aren't willing to roll up your sleeves and build solutions - Expect everything to be 100% ready for you - Cannot work with the best interest of other teams in mind - Your definition of flexible work environment means that you have to work less
