I worked at AOL as an intern for less than a year

Pros

AOL still has good people with years of expertise, and they are reshaping to work on new technologies that are more fun.

Cons

Perception of the company is still a bit poor, and it's a little weird when people ask if AOL is 'still around'. Internal infrastructure seems to be a bit outdated as well but that's improving. It's not a sure thing that they'll still be around in 5 years, so it's not the safest place to 'build a career'.

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

    Pros

    Laidback but professional atmosphere, lots of initiatives aimed at upholding fun, social company culture, generally flexible work schedules (within reason), lots of great people, spirit of open communication from upper management, plenty of room for career growth and change from within (as well as clear HR protocol on how to explore new positions within the company). Not uncommon for company's business strategies to change course, but I consider that a good thing, as it means the company is agile, and willing to change to meet market demands.

    Cons

    HUGE company, which can be overwhelming depending on what your position or experience is. There are a lot of resources available, but it can be confusing to navigate those resources.
