I have been working at AOL as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Respect, responsibilities, camaraderie. The work was rewarding.

Cons

Working hard doesn't guarantee you a job. Management in departments you aren't working in don't try to understand what you do on a daily basis, making it harder to seem worthy in the eyes of others.

Advice to Management

Spend more time getting to know everyone's responsibilities.

    I worked at AOL full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Smart colleagues. Great technology and a chance to learn from some of the best minds in the industry.

    Cons

    As my title says; I've seen people get laid off without a second thought including smart and loyal people who'd been with the company for over 10 years. Personally, I was with the company for 5+ years and was let go even though my performance showed that I was above average performer. The team I worked for had very few non-white considering the team was 60+ people and you could count the minorities on the finger of one hand and none of them in leadership position. The specific team I was working for only had 2 people laid off in a 3 year span and both were colored.

    Since the past 3 years, I've seen more and more of the lay-offs included people of color. Don't get me wrong, there are still colored people in the company but if you could get hands on pre-2008 data and post 2011-12 data you would see the clear evidence of what I'm saying. If this post is flagged and not posted, I'll be disappointed.
