I have been working at AOL full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Always something fun going on at the campus. Beer bashes, scooters, free coffee, tea, soda, & juice. Company sincerely cares about employee welfare as well as helping out in the community wherever possible. Flexibility with schedules/time off.

Cons

Things are still somewhat fragmented from the years of mismanagement/bloat. Lot's of layers of middle management, since there are so many different groups.

Advice to Management

Keep us moving on the upward trend!

    I have been working at AOL full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are phenomenal. The work culture is that of a start up/ tech company with their flexible work hours (may depend on group), availability to work from home, happy hours, flexibility to wear casual clothes and lots of autonomy.

    Cons

    Sometimes unorganized and too many reorgs, direction and mission has been lost. They need a stronger executive team that has a clear direction and can lead them in the right path.

    Advice to Management

    Create a stronger executive team with a clear mission that connects for all the different businesses, make it transparent to the whole company and how each person contributes to these goals and win.
