  1. "AOL is not a place for the weak, but it's an awful lot of fun if you're a turnaround person"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    All the benefits of a startup (fast decision making, lots at stake) without worrying about where the money is coming from.

    Cons

    Reaching back to draw from our legacy as a great engineering company requires making sense of the Time Warner years, and that's tough.


  2. "Overworked and underpaid"

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Dulles, VA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    AOL does have many opportunities for advancement but you really have to work too much to get those promotions. Additionally, you don't receive many of the "good" benefits that other tech companies provide.

    Cons

    Lack of benefits such as free meals and 100% insurance. The one thing that really bothered me however was the fact that the onsite cafeteria was really lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to employees you're losing them left and right because you're not listening to their complaints, if you listen you'll better be able to retain employees.
