Lead Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Dulles, VA

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

ProsGood 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.

ConsNo 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..

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
