    I have been working at AOL

    Pros

    Calibre of people working here
    Benefits, have to be one of the best
    Infrastructure - amazingly scalable with good reports and alerts (including bldg infra which many take for granted)
    List of tecnologies and change

    Cons

    Some deadwood still floating around! :(
    Concern for applications when someone is on vacation
    Infrastructure - legacy, many pieces, documentation not up to date
    Number of meetings can get overwhelming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the word out like Rick Santorum, not Romney. Many people still do not know about Aol
    Please avoid meetings with repeating messages - glad that many of these are now online
