    I have been working at AOL full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work with a lot of exceptional people, good place to work with a lot of fun amenities, giving back to the community is part of the culture, focus is on the work and not too much politics, to be successful usually requires long hours but the work arrangements are extremely flexible.

    Cons

    Some leaders are able to continue to make bad decisions with no repercussions.

    Little upward movement as the company is shrinking

    unclear how the Verizon buyout will affect our corporate culture; everyone assumes the old reputation of our brand

    Pros

    There are lots of fun, smart folks who work and play hard. They are very flexible about remote workers and working from home as needed.

    Cons

    Management could focus more on development of employees. Options are definitely available, but as an employee you need to push for them yourself.

    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.
