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

Pros

AOL 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.

Cons

There 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.

    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.
