    I have been working at AOL full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people, considerate management. They sympathize with employee fear and provide career advice to get new jobs that are more in demand.

    Cons

    Could not cope up with technology changes quickly enough. Always behind the curve as far as innovation goes.

    Advice to Management

    Be more forward looking and be proactive than reactive.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AOL (New York, NY).

    Interview

    First phone call, then online interview. It was not difficult. It was the standard questions asked in an interview. Recommend doing research about the different aspects of the company to prep for the interview.
