Product Support Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 12, 2016
I loved my experience interning with AOL. It was an amazing year that taught me a lot. I enjoyed the work I got to engage in as well as all of the fun corporate events that took place. AOL is surprisingly a wonderful media company, and it is filled with talented people. I plan on applying once I have my degree.

Technical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Grand Jct, CO – August 4, 2016
Taking inbound technical support calls from customers with setup or connectivity issues. Some customers were beyond upset and frustrated, being able to calm them down and walk them through the steps to connect was the best part of the phone call

Fun great company to work for that compensates accordingly. Working overnights the managers provide a fun environment and compensate for overnight workers properly by providing great feedback, and being able to move up to better shifts.
Senior Systems Analyst (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – May 9, 2016
During company's spectacular rise, which brought the internet into homes for the first time, the work was exciting and historic. Intense competition and a poor fit of corporate cultures in a merger with Time Warner led to the company's loss of its premier position on the internet and consequent shedding of payroll and shrinkage of corporate campus. Huffington Post, however, is a successful acquisition. Company struggles to find its way with a mix of web properties and online advertising businesses.

AOL Inc. inspires creativity, innovation, productivity and many more great things that make up a successful company. At AOL Inc. your boss isn't just your manager, but your mentor, and a leader too. The people you work around are all friendly, and willing to help whenever you may possibly need it, and they're all hardworking and inspirational!
Fun and laid back work environment where you won't be challenged
Product Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 7, 2016
AOL is a great place to work if you love cliques and gossiping amongst teams. If you don't fit in with your coworkers be prepared to be casted as an outsider.
There is not a ton of work to be done and AOL employs many "interesting" tactics to collect revenue that aren't going to last too long.
The culture is fun and the median age is very young so people are always willing to go to happy hours or have parties.
If you are looking to work in a cool office and meet fun/young people then this is the place for you. If you are looking to make a difference to society and advance your skills, rather than seeing how many ads can be placed on a webpage, then avoid working at AOL.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – Ogden, UT – February 20, 2016
Very fun company to work for. They really recognized the sales professionals that were meeting or exceeding company expectations. They had contests as a way to motivate their workforce. My colleagues were amazing, and fun to work with.
Marketing (Current Employee) – Dulles, VA – February 16, 2016
I couldn't ask for a better work experience. The people, company culture and perks are great. Right now there's lots of change with the Verizon acquisition...for the most part good things are happening.
Free soda, gym/exercise classes, career development, great people
National Senior Editor, AOL CityGuide (Former Employee) – Beverly Hills, CA – January 30, 2016
I met the most creative, intelligent people while at AOL 1999-2007. Many have become lifelong friends and colleagues. I cannot speak for what's left of the company now, but it was a dream job while it lasted.
Director Content Producer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 27, 2016
Opportunities are always around the corner. S simple job that I produced and directed for this company landed my work in the OSCARS in 2014. Great environment, which encourages you to be creative in new trends.
Marketing (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 13, 2016
AOL is unlike any place I've ever worked, but like every company I've read about in corporate stereotypes. It is a corporate conglomerate that is too large for its own good, with confusion about roles and responsibilities, where everything is urgent, but nothing makes any impact. Employees at AOL are rude and competitive with one another, and try to look busy to maintain their job without coordinating or working as a team. AOL is all about words, but with no action to back them up. Its a mess. Just don't.
Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee) – Dulles, VA – January 6, 2016
It was a of learning and meetings that the interns had. In my department I would sit in on some meetings and then do my part for the project that we had. It was a fun place to work in. I would do all over again. They had ping pong tables, Foosball tables, massage chairs, gym, soccer field, basketball court, etc that you could enjoy when on break. Also the Soda, you were allowed to have unlimited free soda.
