Pros

The work culture at AOL is very different than other companies. Here you are given the chance to innovate and show your potential. It encourages you not only to develop as a skilled professional but also as a excellent human being. Flexible timing, work from home are added plus points. Here the employees are not forced to do anything, rather employees are self motivated to own the responsibilities of the task they perform.

Cons

The stability issue is of more concern.

Advice to Management

You are a technology based company. Don't loose your focus what you are good at...

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great! I guess HR were instructed to maintain the level of attitudes required at AOL at the hiring stage, because the office culture at AOL is unlike most corporate environments.

    Cons

    Poor management decisions and no clear focus in business strategies. Laying off people after foolish decisions made by senior management doesn't help motivate employees in the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Don't bother buying companies at their peak and then act surprised when they devalue soon after. Also, just because some people got lucky at their last employer, doesn't make them great CEOs at AOL.
