    I worked at AOL full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many are able to work remotely.

    Cons

    Upper management is concerned only with feathering their own nests. They promote people who buy into the vision of "there are no problems, give me a big bonus."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sorry, a head to toe clear out of the dead wood you promoted and bring back the workers and contractors that you "downsized".

    Definitely has sound parts of the company, but still feels like it is just trying to stay afloat

    I have been working at AOL full-time

    Pros

    The company benefits, the flexible hours, and the opportunity to work remotely are definitely perks. Plus, there are some sharp and talented people still with the company. Lastly, the company does try to provide some interesting events to break up the workday.

    Cons

    The politics from the senior leadership severely affect projects and product strategies, sometimes without any sound reason. A couple of them do not appear to have the experience or skills to actually lead their team.
