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

    Pros

    They give great benefits and have very lax hours. This is for actuarial analysts. They offer many resources to pass exams and place your growth as a high priority.

    Cons

    It is difficult trying to balance work with studying. Work should always come first and studying for exams ends up being far more cumbersome at a company like Aon Hewit.

    Pros

    Campus like setting with tons of amenities and they really seem to care for their employees.

    Cons

    Location is difficult to get to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After the formal interview with 5 people the follow-up took weeks at which time I took another position. A weekly status even if it's "your still in the running" would of been nice.

    For a place that consults on employee engagement there should be more done then just talking about it with little to no action especially with such terrible engagement scores.

    Cons

    35% of people do 90% of the work
    Inept India mgmt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find another way to staff other than college recruiting. You will need to change course as you are now witnessing the campus recruiting effort to be a failure. Turnover is at an alarming rate and those remaining are bearing the extra work. India transitional and lack of accountability will always force top talent out the door.

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

    Pros

    Aggressive growth opportunities exist for motivated employees. Due to long work hours co-workers become friends quickly.

    Cons

    The culture in this organization is broken. Leadership changes just stunt the growth and development since lessons are not learned from prior years, but poor judgement leads to repeated errors that have already been made in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand that you have leaders who are so self-serving in place and the most successful businesses in the country never lose focus on those employees who touch the customer. These two fundementals cannot be overlooked any longer ! Bring back the leaders from the past who already knew this and stop changing the name every year, it looks like you're hiding from your past.
