    I worked at AOL full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Yes, AOL still exists. Even better, it has highly motivated, intelligent, technical people using cutting-edge technologies and methodologies to drive the company forward.

    Cons

    The company's strategy is muddy and difficult to explain, and there is a constant threat of downsizing. This contributes to stress and morale problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From the very top, there needs to be a clear, concise vision of company strategy.
