Amazing Worklife Balance - Low Change of Progression

Senior Accountant (Current Employee) Dulles, VA

ProsAOL is a great place to work if you have a family or want to be able to have a life outside of work. Everyone is very casual, there is no dress code and the hours are generally very good. Management has a focus on employee happiness and everyone is very understanding of priorities and responsibilities outside of the workplace.

ConsThere are a lot of lay-offs at the company due to Management's strategy to continuously cut costs. There isn't much room for upward mobility because of the cost savings strategy and there is limited company growth. Many talented people leave because they will only be promoted if the boss leaves or dies, which rarely happens.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
