    I worked at AOL full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Incredibly talented technology team
    -A good feeling of "team" in some places despite being such a large organization
    -Opportunity to work on products and services that are used by a lot of people

    Cons

    -Large stakeholder groups make it difficult to get things done
    -Multiple layoffs distract from doing real work (it's hard to concentrate when everyone is buzzing with worry)
    -Frequent reorganizations also distract from doing real work (it's hard to concentrate when everyone is trying to figure out new groups and management structures)
