What you have is one of the most common of succulents. Even before succulents hit the mainstream, everyone has had a Jade Plant or two. They are supremely indifferent to bad conditions, and will survive some of the most horrible situations and recover easily once they get better light.

That's what's mainly wrong with yours. The leaves should be a little closer together, so that's an indication that it needs brighter light, and probably less water too.

Here's more; Crassula which is the genus that this plant belongs to. If you want to look it up online, look for Crassula ovata, which is this species.

See more about general succulent care so you know what the requirements for the healthiest plant are.
