Pros

Interesting work, easy to move around from group to group, great people

Cons

Your experience depends greatly on which group you work for and what kind of turmoil the company is going through. Lay offs twice a year, every year.

    I worked at AOL full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Between phone calls and during meetings, I had a blast. Great company as far as socializing.

    Cons

    The actual job of phone tech support was very stressful BUT I was there during the time they switched from AOL hourly subscriptions, to unlimited for one monthly price. The customers were frustrated, angry and rude. It got to the point I didn't even want to answer the phone at my own home anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I loved upper management. They were helpful, funny and friendly.

    I have been working at AOL full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was happy when I left. It was close to home.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for long-time employees, mothers, people with life outside of work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your priorities straight. Without happy employees, your company is nothing.
