    Pros

    AOL is one of the first tech companies, but still manages to stay current - smart acquisitions, releasing better technology and products, positive and fun workplace environment.

    Cons

    As with any large corporation, positions are very specialized with less room to grow. Red tape, negative/unfavorable public image from AOL's dial-up service (working on this)

    Advice to Management

    When there are meetings asking for feedback from employees, act on the feedback and let it be known that you have heard them.

    Pros

    AOL offered very fair, if not superior compensation. The people I worked with were great, and clearly represented some of the best minds in the industry. The expectations given in terms of workload were entirely reasonable, and allowed me to find a great balance of work/personal life. AOL offered a superior benefits package that included vision and dental. In addition, working at AOL provided me with lots of opportunities for professional development.

    Cons

    You are ultimately working for the people who bring the internet to our grandparents, and whom still have not found their new identity in the DSL and Cable connected internet world.

    Advice to Management

    Dear Management of AOL,

    I know that you are riding an ever aging dinosaur, and trying to figure out how to best monetize it before it dies. Be nimble. Change with times. Maybe, just maybe, there might still be some life in that old dinosaur.
