    I worked at AOL full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It was a great place for growing and championing new ideas. The teams I worked on were highly collaborative, and the people I worked with were brilliant.

    Cons

    Too many of the legacy employees (those there pre-2000), were entrenched in old-school thinking and were more interested in playing politics in-order to "avoid rocking the boat."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're current strategy will work in the short-term, but your reliance on display advertising will ultimately be your undoing.

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

    Pros

    The compensation is decent and competitive.

    Cons

    The CEO is an emotional train wreck and a sales person rather than a steady thinker. Projects are stopped, often stalled even when they are worthwhile and lucrative. This place takes 'be accepting of change' to a whole different dysfunctional level. Nothing gets done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop firing smart people. Stop hiring new execs every five seconds. Get a freaking clue.
