Dont make waves, prove yourself first and then ask about flexibility.

again, very team dependent. If you do have flexibility it is like a dirty secret and you are often times considered "lucky" based on your manager.
Some teams are more diverse at the leadership level (Account Management, for example), while others are all men at the top , which will limit your growth opportunities.

Demand more for pay and promotions, after diligently doing your homework. AOL is (sadly) one of those places where in order to truly get what you want/deserve, you have to come in with a counter-offer. Keep in mind that a company is NOT your family - demand more because you're worth it and it's a free market.

Really varies based on which unit they'd be considering joining. Overall, the executive ranks are plagued by Older White Male disease, promotions (titles especially) tend to be based less on actual merit/experience and more on male ego, and pay is grossly unequal for women. Highly misogynist environment in sales and adtech teams, and sexual harassment was plentiful.

The benefits and flexible work/life balance is great if you can survive the layoffs and constant reorgs.

Research details about your manager ahead of time. Interview them about their management style. Find past employees to speak to vet any concerns. Do not assume a female manager will be the most supportive; most male managers are equally, if not, more so supportive of employees regardless of gender. Except some of the Israelis (mostly on the engineer side) who come from a culture that is still male-dominated.

Culturally the company has seen a negative turn in morale since the Verizon acquisition and MSFT partnership. Quality of life and positive attitude is dependent on what team you work for (management-based). The marketing organization is 90% female but is fiercely competitive and cliquish. I've been with the company nearly a decade and in this current environment very rarely feel safe in my position or that my (female) manager has my back.
Fix the culture to accommodate to the changing times.

The company was set up to support people out in that there are multiple people involved in a book of business. If someone is out things don't fall apart completely. The company is generally staffed appropriately. There is a lot to know and to learn and it's always pretty crazy but the people are nice and smart but not too smart... they also like to get things done and grab a beer once in a while. It was one of the happiest times of my life working at AOL.

I've worked here for 6 years and it's not so much that woman are treated differently as much as anyone over the age of 30-35 is. AOL prides itself on being a company for working women and that may be in Dulles where they have onsite daycare and are able to leave at 530pm but that's not the case in the other offices at all.

Get to know and build relationships with as many people across the company as possible, especially influential ones. I had 7 bosses in 4 years so you never knew who was going to be in charge or what their goals or style would be.

Depends on what department. CEO is good, not all other managers are
