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

Pros

great goals - they keep trying to get back on top; non-profit connections for employees

Cons

need to re-shape from the inside out. Poor infrastructure keeps them from capitalizing on the acquisitions.

Advice to Management

Toss old equipment stacked up in a warehouse instead of passing it around to employees who need *new* machines. Gut all the intra-websites and security and get a new, smart system in place. Loose the FAX requests and desk phones.

    I worked at AOL full-time

    Pros

    The best thing about AOL is the employees, who are brilliant and congenial. The facilities in the various buildings and locations are great, the benefits are fantastic, and it's a good place to learn about a variety of technologies, products and services. There is a deep knowledge of the industry still vested in the many employees that have been there for more than a decade.

    Cons

    AOL keeps reinventing itself. In many ways this is a good thing, because it is adapting itself to the realities of the current industry.

    Advice to Management

    Keep refining AOL's vision, focus on what AOL does best.
