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

    Pros

    This is a very professional working environment, with great weather management for the campus, and also has great security. Aon Hewitt is a very big, well-maintained company. The staff is very friendly, and the food is pretty good, too! It;s not the worst place to work.

    Cons

    The fact that Aon Hewitt requires you to work on holidays and days with horrible weather conditions is absurd. They only allow you a certain amount of days off, otherwise your fired- which is ridiculous. Aon Hewitt doesn't care for your reason as to why you're late, even if they're life-threatening, and will still deduct from your attendance count. Also, they offered free food and drinks, up until they made everything purchasable for crazy high prices.. This is not the best place to work.

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

    Pros

    Difficult to scrape the bottom of the barrel due to having short arms.
    Free onsite parking and the monthly food allowance offset some of the short comings.

    Cons

    During my employment, within this specific section of the Aon (umbrella) I have witnessed, poorly constructed on the job training, lack of clarity of shift periods, changing lunchtimes; ie 30minute, 45 minute or 1 hour allowance.
    A lack of clear and definable paths of progression, meaningless, counter productive team meetings.
    Poor (middle) management decisions, possibly due to a lack of adequate training.
    A default response to this is 'they gave a good interview'.
    Finally, the failed, ie dropped, Employee Engagement Project, instantly led staff to realise that they did not matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clear career pathways need to be set, just because an individual joins at an entry level position, they should not be pigeon holed and only seen as worthy of that level.
    Set and standardised training programs for the onboarding and continuous development of employees.
    Give the Trainers the necessary training to perform their role and to take onboard the feedback given by employees.
    Ignoring feedback has led to a downward spiral of employees leaving due to the most basic or reasons, such as, knowing what shifts they will be working the following week in advance, rather than at the end of day on a Friday. Unstable IT infrastructure, wasted time and money, while employees are 'offline' due to system crashes.
    Be open with your employees and look, and invest in the basics; clarity, training, progression.

    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - If you're looking for a chill job with mindless work and low pay in return for life-work balance, then this is your type of company.
    - You can work remotely, depending on your manager.
    - You can make a load of money with overtime, depending on your client team.
    - You can have better opportunities within Aon (outside of Hewitt), depending on your luck
    - Secure job with a steady progression, if you just sit at your desk and obey your manager.

    Cons

    - Absolutely incompetent middle managers who have no ambition in life and been doing the same entry level job for 10-20 years so they work just for the paycheck and dont mind repeating the same failed processes over and over again. They will make you hate your job from day 1.
    - Super political company and old fashioned culture of brown nosing and obeying rules, even though you will hear leaders say they want to change that but it's BS
    - Intense competition in recent years has led the company to be cheap about everything from not ordering business cards to vanishing bonuses (70-80% every year). But the company still spends a ton of money on fancy dinners and hotels to lure campus hires.
    - Most talented campus hires who care about their long term career goals leave the company within a year or 2 (retention rate for Benefits Administration is at 48% one year later). The only ones that stay are those that hate their job but don't have time to apply for other jobs because they enjoy TV too much.

    Pros

    The pay is okay starting out until they start to treat you like a slave. Then promote those they favor

    Cons

    This company has alot of favortism and those employees of color other than white unless you are friends with a manager even with experience are at a disadvantage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is ver selfish and unconcerned about the CSR and they will bully you to quit if they dont like you.

    Pros

    I don't really remember any quality to talk about this pathetic company with worst growth opportunities.

    Cons

    I don't understand how come this company has such good market brand name when colleagues are not at all happy or satisfied working here. No growth opportunities, no bonuses, no Diwali gifts, horrible transport management. Lot of managers here who got position based on connections and not on the basis of their skills. HR team is completely clueless about what is happening in the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pathetic Management should be changed and leaders will skills and brains should be hired.

    Management talks the Talk, but does not walk the Walk. Dysfunctional management-poor communication, many reversals.

    Pros

    good coworkers, some good supervisors.

    Cons

    Infrastructure needs updating badly - computer applications in offices are slow. Many repetitive disappointments for employees. Half the staff is not interested in their daily work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people, systems, and delivering on promises internally.
