    I have been working at AOL full-time

    Pros

    AOL is a great, fun, young, relaxed, forward thinking digital company. It has the feel of a start up with larger financial backing.

    Cons

    The AOL company was just acquired by Verizon so there are a lot changes that are happening with the company or direction that Verizon will take AOL.

    Pros

    Great culture, great benefits, and relaxing environment overall.

    Cons

    Way too many layoffs. Recently bought out by Verizon will make this company tank even more. If you hear strong rumors of layoffs, it will happen.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. The management overall was great.

    Pros

    Fast paced, turnaround, great colleagues, cool offices, downtown New York, smart leadership, good food at work, lots of cool new products / platforms.

    Cons

    Too much change. Company restructuring too often. Employees don't always know what's going on. Feel of layoffs makes employees uneasy.

    Advice to Management

    Management has done a great job getting the company ready for an acquisition. Better internal communications would make employees more engaged and feel secure.
