    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Decent selection of health and welfare benefits
    -Instant vesting in 401k at a good %
    -If you are technical the work is pretty easy, so you can make yourself look pretty good
    -Decent training, lots of access to training materials
    -Fairly easy workload 75% of the year if you are in H&W
    -Work from home
    -Sweet stock purchase program

    Cons

    -Sept through Dec can be miserable due to the workload, if you are in H&W
    -Low pay in comparison to competitors
    -Weird bonus pay that doesn't reward performance
    -Meaningless raises, both rate and merit
    -Managers actively try to keep you in "business unit", instead of looking in your best interest
    -Managers don't seem to care about employees who want to grow career, move fast
    -All tools and tech are mostly proprietary
    -Tech divided into service groups that are difficult to work with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The raises are laughable and don't even cover cost of living increases. Also it has become quite apparent that my managers want to keep me in their unit, so the only way I'm ever getting to the next level is if I seek out a new position. I feel like it's being punished for being good at my job. I'm not going to wait around for when it works best for them to possibly promote me within their group.

    I have been working at Aon Hewitt as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The best aspect of this company is the flexibility and diversity. The work-life balance is great.

    Cons

    The only thing I have negative to say about this company is that I wish they would hire more permanent workers, than contractors. Most companies that do this are only looking for the least expensive way to get projects completed. And this does not look out for the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none
