A once great company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at AOL

ProsCompany included many innovative and intelligent people.

ConsThere were continuous rounds of layoffs (one major round of layoffs every 2-3 months). Management was not able to provide direction resulting in low morale within the teams supported. After the merger, AOL and TW continued to operate as two different companies and managers of each company never worked together to build on the capabilities of each team. The company is now a shell of what it used to be.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
