I worked at AOL full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

AOL grants its employees access to an invaluable number of resources--from both a culture standpoint as well as professionally. Additionally, it values its people that the company took great care in hiring the best of the best. I found I worked amongst the best and brightest.

Cons

At times, things felt so volatile that I never knew what I was walking into in the morning--whether it was another acquisition, an org change, layoffs or an exciting new product. It was really unpredictable but that was also a great way to learn and adapt.

Advice to Management

Measure twice, cut once.
