I have been working at AOL full-time (less than an year)

Pros

great goals - they keep trying to get back on top; non-profit connections for employees

Cons

need to re-shape from the inside out. Poor infrastructure keeps them from capitalizing on the acquisitions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Toss old equipment stacked up in a warehouse instead of passing it around to employees who need *new* machines. Gut all the intra-websites and security and get a new, smart system in place. Loose the FAX requests and desk phones.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Depending on the group you're in you may have more or less management breathing down your neck. It is easy to move around the company once you know where to look.

    Cons

    The senior management really don't care much about the company except, for each for their own piece. So many projects and so few project owners make it easy to slip by, but difficult to accomplish much of anything. Frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bit of sincerity and humility would go a long way to keeping your employees happy and motivated.
