    I have been working at AOL full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good place to work, people are good, work culture is ok and you can move around groups. Most groups allow work from home options. Also most managers are flexible and willing to work around family needs.

    Cons

    No growth opportunities. Most groups work on out dated technologies. Lot of uncertainity, since lay offs happen every 6 months or so. Also since the business is shrinking, it is getting more and more difficult to look for something in the future..

    Pros

    Good overall compensation and benefits packages. You get lots of AOL t-shirts. Could be an opportunity to be a part of something big.

    Cons

    Lot of turnover in senior leadership has caused much inconsistency. Layoffs seem to happen constantly so the concept of job security does not exist. Seems to be big disconnect between the senior management and the rest of company (in many ways).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a better understanding of how an average employee feels

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
