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

Pros

AOL is one of the first tech companies, but still manages to stay current - smart acquisitions, releasing better technology and products, positive and fun workplace environment.

Cons

As with any large corporation, positions are very specialized with less room to grow. Red tape, negative/unfavorable public image from AOL's dial-up service (working on this)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When there are meetings asking for feedback from employees, act on the feedback and let it be known that you have heard them.

    Pros

    Fun place to work with great perks. The culture at AOL varies by business group. Some teams are full of amazingly smart people with new ideas, who don't take themselves too seriously.

    Cons

    The direction of the company changes annually. You could be part of great team, who is doing amazing work and the next week your entire team could be laid off. To succeed here, you have to be able to accept that the answer for why a whole team is focused on a project is often just, because the exec team "said so."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay more than 18 months
