Started out great, but the constant staffing and cost cutting are demoralizing

I have been working at AOL full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good team working on a turnaround with promising results
Management takes big bets
Exciting problems to work
Energetic environment
Finally got rid of Patch

Cons

Constant cost cutting is exhausting - recent 401k change is icing on the cake
Constant headcount reductions - sometimes people just disappear
Understaffed
The people are not all top notch - some still need to be weeded out

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If talent is really important to the company then start acting like it. Stop letting Wall St dictate all of the numbers and actions. The stock price is only one measure of a company's success.
