    I worked at AOL full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    This was an amazing place to work. In my 9 years at the company, I was able to learn so much about my industry and craft. I was exposed to so many different experiences that I would not have been in a traditional setting.

    Cons

    Too many cooks in the kitchen at times. Executive messages get lost filtering down to the teams that need to execute.

    Advice to Management

    Be on point in terms of messaging.

    I have been working at AOL full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    AOL had an environment like none other. It will be sad to no longer be a part of it.

    Cons

    There shouldn't still be a divide between men/women in tech. With such a forward thinking company, this still exists in plenty. Many areas within have overcome this hurdle, but a lot of the engineering level positions remain male-dominant without any real access to possible career advancement for women. "Be happy with what you have."

    Advice to Management

    n/a
