    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.

    Pros

    Really great atmosphere. Lots of young people, growth, beautiful office. Massage chairs!

    Cons

    Huff po reorganized entire office to 'more productive' open space but seems like just a cheap way to cram more people in one space. Not sure about the longevity of the company. Depends on the outcome of Armstrong's multi million dollar blog spending spree

    Pros

    You learn a lo about being a leader. You have AOL build series on leaderships, with a lot of different celebrities. They have training sessions. Great corporate culture, so bright and every is so happy.

    Cons

    My work wasn't really hands on, very repetitive. Wish I could of been more welcomed into meetings and that my opinions were heard.

    Advice to Management

    It would of been nice to meet with other c-suite executives. Met with the CEO, but it would of been helpful to meet with the CMO, CFO, etc. to get a better vision of what they did to be in this position and advice that they had.
