I worked at AOL full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Culture is great, you feel like they really appreciate you as a person.

Cons

Upper management does not see clearly about promotions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really take a look at who is managing your teams. Look at each employees yearly review and what they have to say.

    Pros

    Great growth opportunity (at the time)

    Cons

    Stress, always chasing a number, too much micromanagement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If I could give them advice (business closed) I would tell them to not be so secretive and to stop micro managing so much.

    I worked at AOL full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work from home, company equipment, annual bonus.

    Cons

    Poor leadership (Tim Armstrong in particular), unclear mission, ineffective brand marketing, too many cooks in the kitchen (none all that great).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut away a few layers of management and let the soldiers fight. Most of the time you're out of the loop or reacting to a situation that either blew over or resolved itself weeks or months ago. Fire Tim Armstrong.
