Glad to have worked there; Glad I left

Technical Project Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

Pros-Incredibly talented technology team
-A good feeling of "team" in some places despite being such a large organization
-Opportunity to work on products and services that are used by a lot of people

Cons-Large stakeholder groups make it difficult to get things done
-Multiple layoffs distract from doing real work (it's hard to concentrate when everyone is buzzing with worry)
-Frequent reorganizations also distract from doing real work (it's hard to concentrate when everyone is trying to figure out new groups and management structures)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Echoes of the Past

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee)
    Dulles, VA

    I worked at AOL full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Still plenty of smart people working there. Experience with Industry standard, open and proprietary software and hardware platforms in a large environment. Pay was always above average… Cons: AOL was clearly a company consumed by terrible past business decisions, and so it's outlook was always going to be rocky. Starting at a… Advice to Senior Management: In AOL's current incarnation, I have little advice to offer management, as it has been years since I've been there.
