    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The compensation is decent and competitive.

    Cons

    The CEO is an emotional train wreck and a sales person rather than a steady thinker. Projects are stopped, often stalled even when they are worthwhile and lucrative. This place takes 'be accepting of change' to a whole different dysfunctional level. Nothing gets done.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing smart people. Stop hiring new execs every five seconds. Get a freaking clue.
