Lack of direction, Too many dinosaurs and Egos

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGreat facilities, campus is great. Gym. Lot of state of the art technologies and lots of data to play around with.

ConsMost people would have been here 10 years or more. In most companies this would validate the employer. Here, it just shows these people are survivors and bitter after surviving all those layoffs. Knowledge transfer is minimal as people dont wanna share too much in case they become less valuable. Also a lot of arrogance comes after surviving dozens of layoffs. Lot of cliques around and its hard to find someone cool and secure enough to mentor and help new employees find their way.

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople who dont even have college degrees making it to VP levels is fine (in fact, credit to them though in AOL's case its probably someone who has been there since high school) but when they dont have basic communication skills and manners and strut around with huge egos makes them the worst people to work for. Management, you know who you are.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
