Former Employee - Principal Systems Engineer in Dulles, VA
Former Employee - Principal Systems Engineer in Dulles, VA

I worked at AOL full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Great work environment, in building cafeteria, flexible work hours (work from home benefit), good salary and overall benefits

Cons

People who's been working there for over 10 years are generally not technically competitive and unwilling to embrace changes or challenges in most cases. Politics between apartments can limit your efficiency. Very ridiculous performance review system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

value those who can actually work and give them a career path. Cut those who kiss manager's ass but can't get anything done.

Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
