I worked at AOL full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

AOL 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.

Cons

At 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 ManagementAdvice

Measure twice, cut once.

    I have been working at AOL full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Offers some flexibility, creativity and good people to work with, dynamic working environment. Like the multiple projects and everyday is different with new challenges. It is a team oriented environment.

    Cons

    Inconsistency, non-strategic layoffs, loss of top talent, loss of some good benefits, high stress environment, limited to no promotional opportunities. Projects are often not planned out well and lack long term vision, therefore not executed as efficiently or as effective as they could be. Duplicative efforts across multiple teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back the vision, be more strategic and cut non-performing properties/projects, reward employee performance, bring back 401k matching.
