    Pros

    A number of very good and dedicated people work at Aon. Additionally, because of the size and global nature there are a number of opportunities an individual can pursue.

    Cons

    If you are in a non-client facing area there is extreme pressure to cut costs. The pressure is so extreme that Aon has a tendency to lose many good managers and leaders to other companies.

    Pros

    Great 401k match, flexible work schedules with ability to work remotely, business casual environment

    Cons

    Sharing of information timely, high insurance deductibles, pay not comparable to industry, no recourse for bad behavior, doesn't even go to the person's manager to let them know action was taken or an investigation was done.

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers in how to apply positive reinforcement to their staff. Positive feedback on a regular basis pushes employees to give their best effort at work. Hold people accountable for their actions. Better checks and balances on leave management so people don't steal company time on a regular basis.

    Pros

    Benefits are great! Wonderful if you have a passion for outsourcing and health and benefits

    Cons

    They expect you to work there 5 years before you get a promotion. The merit cycle is not the most encouraging

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your leaders about encouraging employees

    Pros

    Office environment isn't great (though they try). Implied expectation that you'll work overtime even though they don't tell you that upon hiring

    Not much opportunity for advancement outside insurance brokerage roles. Client deadlines can be very extreme, which is great for the client but can be very tough on employees.
