I have been working at AOL full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good place to work, people are good, work culture is ok and you can move around groups. Most groups allow work from home options. Also most managers are flexible and willing to work around family needs.

Cons

No growth opportunities. Most groups work on out dated technologies. Lot of uncertainity, since lay offs happen every 6 months or so. Also since the business is shrinking, it is getting more and more difficult to look for something in the future..

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

    Pros

    You were given a lot of responsibilities and plenty of resources to get your job done.

    Cons

    You were not provided much guidance. Management was a misnomer; you were tasked and supported but you were not managed.
