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.

    Tech teams work in the Agile software development lifecycle with most teams following Scrum methodology

    Cons

    Restructuring is still a constant, thus you never know what you will be doing next
