I have been working at AOL full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Was happy when I left. It was close to home.

Cons

Lack of respect for long-time employees, mothers, people with life outside of work

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get your priorities straight. Without happy employees, your company is nothing.

    I have been working at AOL full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company is very laid back and has a good culture. Friendly employees. Can have good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Some of the groups can be very inflexible. Management need to sweep the mid managers to bring in the right culture. No good structure to see if existing employees are a good cultural fit. Some of the managers are there due to tenure and has to be cleaned up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top vision is not trickling down to the mid/lower management which impacts the morale of the group. However this could be specific to some groups. Unless you have 360 feedback there is no way you can clean shop. There are lot of incompetent managers/directors/executives who are able to hide in the existing structure.
