Great people, scattered strategy

Program Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

ProsAOL grants its employees access to an invaluable number of resources--from both a culture standpoint as well as professionally. Additionally, it values its people that the company took great care in hiring the best of the best. I found I worked amongst the best and brightest.

ConsAt times, things felt so volatile that I never knew what I was walking into in the morning--whether it was another acquisition, an org change, layoffs or an exciting new product. It was really unpredictable but that was also a great way to learn and adapt.

Advice to Senior ManagementMeasure twice, cut once.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
