No opinion of CEO

I worked at AOL full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Work environment, many smart and dedicated people, flexibility - though not necessarily work and life balance, compensation and benefits are above average

Cons

Wearing people down while the company tries to invent their new identity, you are always connected and the expectation is to react quickly - during evenings and on vacation

Advice to Management

Make hard decisions, think longer term

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

    Approves of CEO

    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 Management

    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.
