  1.  

    Has great potential, and great people, but not so much innovation as it's often crippled by politics.

    I worked at AOL

    Pros

    Very nice and fun people to work with. Lots of talented people seem to come to AOL and subsequently feel frustrated by the lack of progress with projects. Understanding about work and lifestyle balance.

    Cons

    Poor communication. If you're stuck working for the wrong group, it's politically challenging to move around. Lots of politics. Projects are frequently embroiled in cross-departmental politics. Innovation is second to copying trends that are usually a year old. There are a lack of visionaries at the top. The slow pace of projects as a result of poor project and product leadership frustrates employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and take initiative in personally asking your employees what they think.

    Pros

    If you are working on a product, you have the potential to impact a very large audience.

    Cons

    Too many de-motivated people remain. The bad attitudes are contagious. No one is proud to be working at AOL.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for a change.
