    I have been working at AOL

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here at AOL are;
    1- Life and Work Balance. Summer days (1/2 day Fridays) and flexible when needed.
    2- Old School internet culture= good fun people to work with.
    3- 'Potential.' The company has the potential to do so much better if they align the tools and technology they have and communicate effectively internally.

    Cons

    The company is big and getting bigger- its harder to have good communication between the different businesses within AOL and the new businesses being acquired.
    And because of it's size- you have less opportunity to shine (depending on your position).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to build from the ground up. Sometimes you cant fix certain parts in hopes that it will all work together. Maybe setup a team to really work on restructuring and processes.

    Pros

    The pay is good and the work is easy. You can always count on doing nothing for six months of the year as AOL prepares for the next layoff/reorg.

    Cons

    AOL lacks vision and focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a differentiated and ownable strategy for AOL. The current copycat strategy is extremely ineffective.
