A Great Place to Work

(Former Employee)

ProsThe 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.

ConsAOL 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 Senior ManagementKeep refining AOL's vision, focus on what AOL does best.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Pros: great goals - they keep trying to get back on… Cons: need to re-shape from the inside out.
