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.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO
