    Pros

    Community connections through civil service activities and team building workshops, well known brand in the marketplace who is providing the only other technology stack rivaling Google, great benefits and competitive salary.

    A large company is often difficult to navigate, some divisions are closer linked than others to the main corporate structure.

    Pros

    San Francisco office is well-designed and intended to be a collaborative work environment. Benefits are good, pay is good. HR/infrastructure works well and isn't full of red tape.

    Cons

    Always in fear that the company is going to go under one day. I believe in our mission and our goals, but it's continually not reflected in the numbers.

    I have been working at AOL

    Pros

    AOL has acquired and established partnerships with the best in class and strongest companies in all of the online arena allowing them to reach 90% of the Internet. Leadership is very transparent about results and good about recognizing employees for success. The new leadership team is moving quickly to integrate all acquired companies to form a unified organization that would be very competitive to Google, Yahoo and Microsoft. The company truly values training and development with the existence of AOLU (University) and work life balance in not driving employees over the edge. The culture is very down to earth and friendly.

    Cons

    The negative and legacy perceptions of the company being associated with dial-up subscribers. Many do not understand the new business model of AOL.com now being free and accessible by anyone. There is a lot of change going on within the organization, especially now as integration is occurring with all of the acquired brands so one must be flexible and able to adapt to changing structures, teams and directions that are designed with the company's best interests in mind. It's difficult to see just how large the company is without working in the Dulles or New York offices where the company started and is now headquartered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consult with employees more frequently on internal changes through surveys.
