    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.
