Pros

flexible place to work in. management is tolerant...nice people. nice facilities. reasonable salary good infrastructure. Leadership is good. Competence of people is reasonable

Cons

Pay is not on par with competition. Much below in some cases. Promotion between US and International is not aligned. people with same # years of work experience in same job in US and International may end up having 2-3 level difference as a result, motivation sucks

Advice to Management

Standardize promotion

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    AOL has a wide range of diverse employees and a very professional work environment. The benefits package is also great.

    Cons

    As with any large company, the struggle to keep employees informed is something that will always be a challenge but I commend the efforts made to remedy this.

    Advice to Management

    I am very pleased with the management that is in place. There is always room to grow and improve the company.

    Pros

    AOL has lots of really smart, passionate employees. You get to work on large scale sites and get great experience managing the infrastructure that powers very busy web sites.

    Cons

    AOL still uses a lot of internally-developed, proprietary technology. Managing an AOL Bucky complex is a technical accomplishment, but is not a skill you can easily transfer to your resume or to another job. Everyone gets pager duty and it's not uncommon to get dozens of employees out of bed to respond to an urgent complaint about something completely meaningless. Accomplishing anything often involves submitting multiple requests to a half dozen different groups who all have their own request/ticketing system.

    Advice to Management

    Tim Armstrong seems to have really rallied the troops. He may bring great things to AOL, but it is going to take a lot of work to get through all of the existing legacy baggage.
