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

Pros

Good work atmosphere, nice office space with always something happening. Given interesting work to do. Supervisor was great guy to work for. Great colleagues.

Cons

Too many meetings, especially those unavoidable all hands. I felt one or two of the bosses could work on their people skills / man management.

Advice to Management

Felt a little bit left to own devices at times, maybe more general feedback on performance.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great compensation, working on real-world, cutting-edge problems.

    Cons

    Very difficult to innovate, system moves rather slowly specifically product and business managers.
    Often technology can be ready very fast but leveraging of features can take very long.

    Advice to Management

    If you want the company to be perceived as a top-technological company, streamline the process of product development, from idea to live feature. Be open to take new ideas from the engineering teams.
