    Pros

    Dynamic, fast-paced environment Entrepreneurial, risk-taking and performance oriented culture replacing older, ossified culture Lots of opportunities for growth, advancement, etc. All trends are "up and to the right"

    Cons

    Organization is still heavily siloed Very large cultural & performance gap between team members who have been with the company for a long time and those who have joined in the last year or so (since the IPO). "Old-timers" are generally embittered, risk-averse, and cynical, having survived countless rounds of layoffs, management changes, and reorganizations. New hires are typically much higher speed, willing to try new things and take risks.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pace of the "turnaround" efforts - time is running out on the clock. Make business owners more accountable for the performance of their organizations. Look ahead and try to create a company that isn't just functioning well, but is innovating aggressively.

    Pros

    Great pay great bonuses. This was the best job that was a great stepping stone. I loved helping out customers.

    Cons

    The downside of AOL was that they were cutting back on job opportunities. I would of love to move up career wise.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping the employees happy and listening to what the employees have to say about their jobs and the way they are being treated.
