Pros

Amazing coworkers and direct manager, wonderful flexible work schedule, great opportunities for professional growth, good benefits, fun projects and media to work with

Cons

Little work life balance, constant change in focus and priorities, senior management has no focus, Huffington Post acquisition has nearly killed the AOL brand, too many lay offs and instability

Advice to Management

Focus!!!! Stop trying to play catch up!!! Lead and innovate. Preserve the AOL brand and stop letting HuffPost land grab the entire media space

    Pros

    It was a great place to work because people were happy, the place was always energize, the leaders were jazzed, people were creative - always coming up with great new ideas. People were encouraged to do great work and the rewards were awesome!

    Cons

    AOL was never the same when Steve Case left the company. The company has been going downhill from that point forward...

    Advice to Management

    Be the innovative company AOL once was... it seems you've just given up and are just hanging to maintain what you already have. The advertising business isn't cutting it.


  2. "Depressing"

    Pros

    I met a lot of good people who worked hard who had a lot of good ideas and were driven to succeed.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company did not work hard for it's employees whom they treated as expendable instead of investments, a real shame.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to think more about their individual groups instead of concentrating on their short term glory and seeing who has the latest luxury car in the garage.
