Pros

Smart minds around and good accounts to work with.

Cons

Dysfunctional leadership. Managers don't make decisive decisions across functional groups. All they do is reshuffle orgs.

Advice to Management

Challenge your subordinates and let them grow outside your position

    Pros

    The pay was great and I learned a ton about the inner workings of a large scale company.

    Cons

    I was not given very much work to do. Some may view this as a good thing, I just found it boring most of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Have more structure and things to do for the Interns


  2. Good pay, but a sinking ship.

    Pros

    The pay was good and it definitely helped me land a much higher paying job after I was systematically laid off with 800 other folks after only being there less than 2 years. I even got a nice severance pkg, including a healthcare option.

    AOL is really into systems/signing off on stuff and such. I learned the basics of program management and content formulation. It really helped having the company on my resume.

    Cons

    Gettining noticed is really hard if you aren't into office politics. Also, if your boss sucks, you suck. So, hope you have a good boss or your division/dept/etc will be axed.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate instead of replicating. Focus on creating something different. Worry about monetizing it after it has traction. Stop playing the shell game with upper execs.
