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

    Pros

    Loved working for the company in its hay day (actually got there towards the end of the hay day.) Enjoyed a few good years of growth and exciting development. The people were great and the work / life balance was very fair.

    Cons

    After the merger with Time Warner there was a real lack of direction. CEOs seemed to change like the seasons. This trickled down through the ranks as there was no real guidance as to where we were going or what we wanted to be. This led to a lot of frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a plan, develop, and stick to it.

    I have been working at AOL full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    AOL is a company that is constantly working to develop best in breed products and services
    Great compensation and benefits
    Great location

    Cons

    There is a lot of wasted time here. Many projects are started and abandoned
    Every new leader comes in and makes snap decisions without understanding it's impact
    Too many people are favorites and promoted to positions that are either pointless or above the skillset

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a step back and set long term, 3-5 year goals. Too many decisions are made with short term gains in mind.
