Former Employee - Program Director in Dulles, VA

I worked at AOL full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

smart people, minimal bureaucracy, great designers, focus on user experience and improving content

Cons

seems like constant threat of layoffs, short attention span for products that under-perform at launch

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In making "culling" decisions, do more homework on the track record of your team members. Don't clear-cut entire orgs to save the time of researching the contributors who happened to have been in the org at the time of the latest budget crisis.
