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.

    I worked at AOL

    Pros

    Progressive work environment, impressive campus amenities, flexible and reasonable work schedules, challenging and interesting work. Smart, talented, and competent coworkers.

    Cons

    Constant leadership, strategic, and organizational changes create a chaotic work environment at times. Unstable career path. Morale issues resulting from frequent layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate incompetent leaders. Set direction and provide adequate time to deliver results. Obtain employee and customer feedback and implement suggestions.

    I have been working at AOL

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Promotions for everyone whether they deserve it or not (both good and bad). Talent recognized and appreciated. Opportunities to make a difference.

    Cons

    No accountability, unreasonable promotions, no good chances for a true career growth. Lots of effort wasted by certain bad decisions made by inept senior managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire the right talent , let go of dead weight, keep the right talent be it executive or individual contributer or anywhere in between.
