Approves of CEO

I worked at AOL as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

- Great Managers who care and have lots of expertise
- Lots of resources to learn online through company
- Learned a lot from co-workers and managers

Cons

- Felt sometimes my managers were overworked and under-compensated (was the only reason I did not join full-time with company as I didn't want that to be me one day)

Advice to Management

Seems a very top-down approach is still there..... give more power to middle managers/ (jr/sr) project managers since they seem to be the ones doing most of the work.
