"Pretty average in every way. Lots of fellow females, pretty middle of the road policies, and cultures vary by office location"

"This company is now part of Verizon after being acquired and has been renamed Oath. However, as far as the tax department it was very working mother friendly."

"The CEO had committed to having equal pay for women and 50/50 male/female leadership by 2020. But there is still a long way to go. Lots of teams (including the CEO's leadership team) are still made up of a majority of white males."

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

"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."

"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. "

"Great Maternity and Shared Parental Leave Policy, flexible, family day every year where you bring your children to work. "
"benefit is not good"
"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."
"Not too much discrepancies between two genders"
"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."
