    I have been working at Aon Hewitt as a contractor (less than an 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.

    Good place to work

    I have been working at Aon Hewitt

    Pros

    Top company with good benefits. Aon has office locations all over the world so if you want to work just about anywhere, you practically can with Aon. Aon has a good 401(k) plan and a pension plan. The pension plan has been extremely reduced for those employees that have joined after 2003 but something is better than nothing! The medical, dental, and vision benfits are excellent because Aon is a large insurance concern. The firm is very much into diversity and inclusion and they offer many opportunities for training. Aon (not just Aon Consulting) is approximately 45,000 people world wide.

    Cons

    Large company where things like work stations are (too) small but they are that way supposedly to keep overhead down. The firm is a bit overbearing when it comes to diversity and inculsion and they waste too much time and money publishing posters and magazines about parts of the firm that have nothing to do with my part of the business. We ask them to stop sending a large number of these publications to small offices where there may be 1/10 the number of people as compared to the number of copies sent but they never listen. Sometimes big is not always a good thing. I don't feel very connected to top management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to the people in the "trenches."
