Fun company, but lacked organizational communication

Account Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsCulture revolves around playful perks and having a good time with co-workers. An extremely social experience.

ConsLots of ventures and acquisitions, it was hard to tell the direction the company was going in.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmphasize the 'team' in 'teamaol' in the management/corporate strategy and not just the 'fun' sense.

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

    Lack of Product Strategy

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at AOL full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: Greater cost controls, more focus on fewer products/brands. Dulles, VA work environment has improved… Cons: The brand still carries the baggage of being you parents' (or grandparents') internet service. While the financial books are in… Advice to Senior Management: You need product leaders who are given the freedom to innovate. The sugar rush from the patent sale… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
