Fun, Exciting and Challenging

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dulles, VA

ProsThe people here are phenomenal. The work culture is that of a start up/ tech company with their flexible work hours (may depend on group), availability to work from home, happy hours, flexibility to wear casual clothes and lots of autonomy.

ConsSometimes unorganized and too many reorgs, direction and mission has been lost. They need a stronger executive team that has a clear direction and can lead them in the right path.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a stronger executive team with a clear mission that connects for all the different businesses, make it transparent to the whole company and how each person contributes to these goals and win.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

The management is proficient at political maneuvering… Advice to Senior Management: Hint: build products and services that customers not only want but are also willing to pay for. Making money is not a crime. Another hint: if… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    great team

    Software Engineer (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

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


    Pros: telecommuted, flexible, good benefits. I never go the opportunity to visit an actual AOL office my entire term… Cons: not much choice in what teams you can move between, but that may have been partly due to telecommuting. I think teams could… Advice to Senior Management: Empower teams, let them innovate, try to not be top… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
