I have been working at AOL full-time

Pros

Very smart and experienced people with extensive background and knowledge of the industry. Good work environment, focussing on a good work/life balance. Above average benefits and an overall respected brand.

Cons

Management team is too egotistical and doesn't provide clear career coaching for staff or new hires. Personal opinions and beliefs get in the way of good workflow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

focus on coaching staff rather than instilling fear of not hitting the number. Use time at meetings to figure out ways to solve department vs. department meetings. More team building activities to allow for cross-department interaction.

    I worked at AOL part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Waterford call centre: Part time shifts great while completing college which allowed for evening and weekend work. Good team environment

    Cons

    One year there was the option of taking stocks as a bonus, if you did not select the option of stocks or was out of the office at the time, you did not receive the stocks or any bonus. Great for me as I got the stocks but not for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on team activities even if one weekly huddle or meeting.
