    I worked at AOL

    Pros

    cool factor (aol/video), great downtown location, allow MAC desktops, young and talented crowd.
    very good technical challenges and powerful upper management that is efficient when implementing changes or push for a new release.

    Cons

    Terrible manager with no people skills, not technical enough to make decision and prone to change his position under the pressure of any character making a point. manager not believing in initiative nor rewarding success,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow real open door policy at all level so issues can be work outside the circle of buddies .

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
