It gives one an added advantage of improving writing skills with a stipend . thus it keeps you from being broke :)

The management must start sending regular mails to students which inform them about different styles of writing and many other things related to the same so that they can improve.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AOL full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary was good (as per industry standards)
    Work life balance - no one asked me to do overtime (for example)
    Nice office & infrastructure - Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore (which is gone now with most people there fired...as they decided to outsource most of the jobs to third party company)

    Cons

    You have to be a politician to get a promotions (talent does not matter much) and licking your boss's ass definitely help.
    Stupid Managers - and they get promotions even when they don't have a clue about what need to be done
    No job security - I saw so many people 'hired and fired'. AOL is notoriously known for laying off people (check company history). This often happen because of what Management calls 'Restructuring' or 'change of business strategy' and they don't need (or can not afford) to retain people.

    Conclusion - NEVER join this company unless you are a lazy politician with no professional expertise (or if you want 1 year of AOL experience on your CV just for its own sake)
