    Pros

    Great work environment. Huge portfolio boost.

    Cons

    "Drink-The-Koolaid" Mentality. While a great way to start a career. It would be a shame to end up there later down the road. Hard to progress pass middle-management.

    I worked at AOL as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Comfortable Working Environment. Nice co-workers, knowledgable and wonderful staff. Cafeteria on premises which sometimes has guest chefs. The character of the building is playful with all of the murals on the walls.

    Cons

    Not many I can think of. Sometimes management is a little slow in making decisions, but other than that I can't think of any problems I really had. I was sad when Winamp was cut, but that's just the reality of the situation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Super smart, driven, hard-working people who are also nice and fun to work with. Good management. A real effort to make employees happy. Great pay and benefits.

    Work-life balance....there is no balance. Got text messages from my boss at 8 p.m. while I was on vacation even though I had a team of people who could have handled the situation.
