I worked at AOL full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Community connections through civil service activities and team building workshops, well known brand in the marketplace who is providing the only other technology stack rivaling Google, great benefits and competitive salary.

    Cons

    A large company is often difficult to navigate, some divisions are closer linked than others to the main corporate structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue to take care of your best people and they will stay

    I have been working at AOL full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very calm and relaxed while at the same time trying to continuously churn out new and innovative products

    Cons

    The dwindling of both customers and employees creates pressures and strains that should not exist

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cannot grow without growing pains. Hire the folks we need so we can improve/innovate everywhere even if it means some lean years for your bonuses.
