I worked at AOL full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The offices are beautiful and comfortable, the benefits are comprehensive, salaries are competitive and there are plenty of fun employee events.

Cons

The company preaches life-work balance, yet many employees are overworked and stressed. The direction of AOL seems to change every six months, leaving lower-level employees struggling to catch up with the executives' visions. Many higher-level employees are in positions where they're ineffective. There's also a culture divide between AOL and Huffington Post.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Back up your plans with resources that allow employees to succeed. Aim to move innovate rather than keep up with competitors.
