Pros

Creative, high energy environment. Genuine emphasis on helping employees be their best (i.e. lots of un-university courses, socials. Genuine commitment to community (Dulles VA employees by the hundreds helped buy and load enought goods to fill an an 18-wheeler, for Hurricane Sandy ravaged residents in NY/NY. Strong emphasis on being healthy. Great help desk support. Great benefits

Cons

Tremendous turnover in upper management results in break-neck changes in strategies and staff relations. Our group was hot one year and dumped the next.

    I worked at AOL as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great Managers who care and have lots of expertise
    - Lots of resources to learn online through company
    - Learned a lot from co-workers and managers

    Cons

    - Felt sometimes my managers were overworked and under-compensated (was the only reason I did not join full-time with company as I didn't want that to be me one day)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems a very top-down approach is still there..... give more power to middle managers/ (jr/sr) project managers since they seem to be the ones doing most of the work.
