Pros

Always using the newest technology. Good training when there is room in the budget. Work with a lot of smart people. Room for growth, and move to other positions with in the company. Open to new business ideas. Always busy to help the day go by quicker. Reasonable hours, even when on call. Teamwork is good at the company for the most part. Everyone works towards the same goal to hit goal numbers. Pretty good about not pointing fingers, instead getting the problem resolved.

Cons

Can be stressful at times. Everyone wants everything done last week, with not having enough hours in the day. (this can be good too). Management passing down ridiculous projects, having no clue how long or hard they are to implement and wanting them on impossible time lines.

Advice to Management

Stop kicking around titles to get things done. Get things done because they make sense, and will help the company move forward.

    Pros

    The people are great and the atmosphere is challenging but also very fun. There is a strong feeling of comeraderie throughout AOL as we work toward each common goal. The company is young and forward thinking, there aren't very many 'sticks in the mud'. We are constantely challenged and supported in thinking 'outside the box' which is refreshing.

    Cons

    At times it feels like each division acts within its own silo and there is not enough communication between groups. This leads to duplication of efforts and confusion as to who or which group is responsible for what. Additionally, the lack of reporting as it pertains to revenue as well as traffic, is astonishing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    AOL pays well. Yep, that's about it.

    Cons

    Never have I workd at such a negative place. Upper management heavy. No positive reinforcement. Constant layoffs. Constant new policies. Constant frustration. if you do go to work there don't be surprised if you're laid off within a year. don't worry, their packages are fair. for the record i have not been laid off. yet

    Advice to Management

    Try treating the underlings like people
