    A good place to work to learn, but not a fun place to work.

    I worked at AOL full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You can learn a lot here as long as you're prepared to put up with a difficult work culture.

    Cons

    Lots of jockeying for position and uncertainty. Layoffs are guaranteed every few months. Go there if you're proactive about managing your career. And use the experience to find a better opportunity at a more stable company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck. The culture wasn't great here from the get-go with Steve Case. And it's only gotten worse with each passing owner. If you truly want to succeed, then you should do away with the terrible culture and start anew. Try to minimize layoffs to increase stability, hire the best and then keep those brilliant minds by treating people as your most valuable asset.

    Great leaders and employees who are passionate about the company
    Lots of career growth opportunities as long as you can prove your worth to the company
    Culture is fun and vibrant...never a dull moment

    Cons

    Constant change...just be ready to adapt to change
    You have to be vocal about your own career and what you want in order to be successful at AOL (it's a huge company after all)
