I have been working at AOL full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great pay, good work life balance

Cons

Lots of politics at senior levels. Little to no indoctrination for new management hires. You have to find your own way. Expectation that you'll know policies, even if they're not documented.

    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.
