Pros

advanced technology
fast pace
bright team members

Cons

tangeled in AOL business challenges. Complexity of organization based on years of acquisitions & pragmatic (sometimes impulsive) decision making and resulting corporate politics could make for a tough ride.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing the things that show appreciation for your employees. Do your best to let people focus and not get tangeld in broader corporate politics.

    Pros

    * Smart engineers and scientists
    * Very interesting and compelling technical challenges
    * Company has a strong market position
    * Benefits and pay tend to be very good given the market

    Cons

    This company has weak and ever-changing corporate leadership. As a result, getting anything done is about who you know rather than the merits of the task. You have to learn to navigate the many fiefdoms. This place is not a meritocracy. Good ideas regularly get ignored if they aren't inline with how certain key individuals think. Also, the fact that the engineering teams are spread across different offices and time zones makes everything all the more difficult.
