    The team is very friendly and some managers are flexible with the work from home ability.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good training program for recent college grads - Generally, a fun group of colleagues to work with - Remote work flexibility for those who need it

    Cons

    - Management inattentive to employee growth needs - Silly performance evaluation system - Compensation is pretty weak relative to peers, as is compensation growth; this generates a lot of unnecessary attrition - Middle management is generally more concerned with protecting themselves than actually doing right by the employees or the long-term success of the business

    Advice to Management

    - Focus on growing and retaining your young talent. You pay to train them, you might as well keep them! It will pay dividends in the long run.

    Pros

    Great company to work for also because of it's international presence. There are offices in most countries around the world. A good work life balance.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Aon Hewitt as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an contractor I was able to work mostly remotely.

    Cons

    My experience: 1) A command & control environment run by non-programming domain experts which emphasized immediate results at the expense of system integrity. 2) A rigid intra-IT departmental structure which negatively impacted system interconnection.

    Advice to Management

    None. None. None. None. None. None. None. None. None. None. None. None. None. None. (Did I reach the "20 word minimum"?)

    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits such as subsidized health insurance, 401k match, stock purchase etc. Decent people to work with in terms of peers and most management.

    Cons

    Hours can fluctuate pretty dramatically from 40 to 70+. The starting pay is pretty low for tech roles so the entry level employees aren't usually very strong.
