    I worked at AOL full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    Make hard decisions, think longer term

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None
