I worked at AOL full-time

Pros

The best thing about AOL is the employees, who are brilliant and congenial. The facilities in the various buildings and locations are great, the benefits are fantastic, and it's a good place to learn about a variety of technologies, products and services. There is a deep knowledge of the industry still vested in the many employees that have been there for more than a decade.

Cons

AOL keeps reinventing itself. In many ways this is a good thing, because it is adapting itself to the realities of the current industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep refining AOL's vision, focus on what AOL does best.

    I have been working at AOL full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It has remodeled itself to make itself relevant in an ever changing market. The company rewards good work and innovation. It has attracted some of the best minds in the business and benefited from it. Excellent benefits and competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Takes too long to cut itself from legacy businesses that have drained its coffers. Has had to get rid of good people because of this, losing some of the innovation and creativity which would have opened up even more doors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are for the most part on the right track. At times insistence in pursuing products that are not doing well is stretched out which hurts all the employees. Being open is a big plus so do continue it.

    Pros

    I truly miss working here. AOL had a great company culture and everyone who worked there was passionate about what they did.

    Cons

    Obviously AOL has been struggling a lot over the years, there is always a risk of being laid off as they seem to do that every year. Not sure how it is anymore.
