Roll of the Dice

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Beverly Hills, CA

I worked at AOL full-time for more than a year

ProsGood paying, swank office (Beverly Hills), fun place, covered underground parking, clean restrooms, top of the line equipment, free food, free BEER (yes, you read that right) and free bicycles to ride around the neighborhood on for lunch or dinner

ConsSo the all of the above sounds great, right? Well, trouble in paradise hits when you have constant lack of job security! AOL is kind of a dysfunctional company, constantly trying to re-invent itself. Currently it's under the dominion of Arianna Huffington, who, on a whim, decided she didn't need my branch of the AOL government anymore! And it doesn't help when your left kind of directionless, which is due to poor communication from management. Although the flip-side to that coin might be ok if you don't like someone hovering over your shoulder all the time...

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to people underneath you more often and it won't be so awkward when you check in on them every three weeks!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

If you can't handle change, look somewhere else. You have to be able to thrive in an environment… Advice to Senior Management: Be deliberate in your hiring of senior executives and make sure they are culture-appropriate, not just the… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
