I have been working at AOL full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Smart people to work with, lots of interesting work. The industry is always changing so the environment is full of risk and opportunity. The company rewards great work.

Cons

Lots of ups and downs. It could be easy to get caught up in a layoff if you find yourself in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more about acquisitions and support their effective integration via PMO. ALL the fat is gone from our current headcount. Now is the time to invest in people to accomplish our ambitious goals.

    The best internship I have ever had, a great company that cares about their employees work and life balance.

    I worked at AOL as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Free snack, massages, a whole snack break room, can come in as late as you want as long as you get your work done. Everyone that's there loves working there, one of the friendliest offices I've ever been in

    Cons

    The only con is that sometimes during the busy times of the year I wouldn't get as much work. And the only other con is that they didn't hire me once my internship was up.

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

    Pros

    -Good work life balance
    -Flexibility (able to WFH when needed)
    -Fun, energetic atmosphere and colleagues
    -Constant change

    Cons

    -have to find and conquer challenges in order to stand out
    -many hoops to jump through to get anything done
    -management not always transparent about upcoming changes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't spring layoffs on employees.
    Find fewer more manageable goals and execute change flawlessly (vs many overly lofty goals that end up getting postponed, or not given the attention needed)
