    Pros

    Employees are very knowledgeable about their fields. There are many folks with expertise in different areas of technology and research.

    Cons

    Evaluation of employees are based on how well they market their work to upper management which often leads to unfair and unbalanced reviews and promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    AOL needs to restructure their people management, benefits, and compensation policies.
