    I worked at Advertising.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I met and learned a lot from a ton of fantastic and intelligent people who I am now good friends with on a personal level. The culture and perks are great - I laughed every day.

    Cons

    Often grueling hours, poor communication between offices and teams, lack of focus and strategy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am grateful for the knowledge I gained from my time at AOL, however there was always a lack of focus and strategy, exceptionally poor communication between teams and from executives to the "doers" which resulted in limited to no work/life balance for many employees.

    It was reasonably ok. It was probably a good first job but I did not learn much.

    Pros

    You can get a very stable work-life balance here. Reasonable chances for personal growth as well. The benefits were alright too.

    Cons

    The company progressed at a much slower pace than I would like. The benefits were alright but the compensation was probably much lower than the market rate.

    Pros

    I learned a lot about the business from these very knowledgable people. The products are great and it was fun to work with everyone there.

    Cons

    I wish I was paid a little better. The marketplace was very competitive so I ended up taking the job even though I should have gotten paid more.

    I have been working at Advertising.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free beer and lots of parties.

    Cons

    Constant layoffs and restructuring. Creating chaos when there is none. No vision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In fairness, I was there at a rough time of transition. Most of the management at AOL Advertising has gone. My advice: Put strategic thinkers in management positions. Spend less money on parties and more in budgets. If you need to have layoffs, do them all at once. Multiple rounds of layoffs throughout the year leave people scared for their jobs, often doing what makes them look good rather than what is best for the company.

    Pros

    positions not structured.
    lack of talented people
    lacks delineation of work.

    Cons

    flexible dress code
    flexible work hours
    less talented people so that makes you the king even if you dont know much ( but slows down your learning )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please start acting like we are a established company not a startup any more.

    I worked at Advertising.com

    Pros

    advanced technology
    fast pace
    bright team members

    Cons

    tangeled in AOL business challenges. Complexity of organization based on years of acquisitions & pragmatic (sometimes impulsive) decision making and resulting corporate politics could make for a tough ride.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the things that show appreciation for your employees. Do your best to let people focus and not get tangeld in broader corporate politics.
