A Contractor that watched poor choices many times

Product Manager (Former Employee)
Dulles, VA

I worked at AOL as a contractor for less than a year

ProsSome good people there and good pay as a contractor. It was also rather flexible and relaxed in the office.

ConsLots of changes in direction and overall poor choices like the commitment to Patch. Due to poor choices regarding what to fund I saw many people get laid off, some of which were there for many years and had tons of knowledge that was essential to the workings of AOL systems.

Advice to Senior ManagementHint: Listen to your customers. When I was there I looked in to a customer feedback link for CORE services only to find out that #1 it was broken, #2 nobody was reading the feedback and #3 nobody had any power to respond or react to the feedback.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Creaky infrastructure

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at AOL full-time for less than a year


Pros: great goals - they keep trying to get back on… Cons: need to re-shape from the inside out. Poor infrastructure keeps… Advice to Senior Management: Toss old equipment stacked up in a warehouse instead of passing it around to employees who need *new* machines. Gut… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
