    Pros

    Flexible working hours, lax on sick/vacation leave, laid back atmosphere, as long as you get your work done you can pretty much come and go as you please, fun happy hours and activities, gym.

    Cons

    The work never ends, barely ever raises/promotions, communication issues because of the two difference offices (NYC and Dulles), lay offs ALL the time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to receive credit on projects. The editors always get all the credit because they provide the content. However, so many people work on the project that don't ever feel the love.

    A company that is all flash and very little substance

    Pros

    good benefits (vacation time, health insurance, 401K all top notch)
    people that remain are very loyal and dedicated
    AOL brand still has some value in the internet space

    Cons

    management can be deceptive to employees
    strategic changes occur too often and appear whimsical at times
    morale is always a challenge and is often very low

    Advice to Management

    AOL is a company that is very driven by the tone and actions of its senior management. Sometimes that can be detrimental at a company, as there is talent at the levels below the company that can be leveraged much better. Invest more in your employees. There are signicantly talented people that work in your organization, but their brainpower is severly underutilized. Find a way to maximize that and bring out the best in each employee, your company will be in a much better place to compete.
