    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great 401k matching %, encouraging of virtual/working from home after 1 year, almost perfect benefits package. Culture places emphasis on taking care of yourself in addition to producing good-quality work.

    Cons

    Virtual aspect means that you don't necessarily sit with co-workers, and schedules can sometime sbe hard to work out with far-away colleagues. Salary is good, but not terribly competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My only qualm so far is the salary. It's a fairly good starting salary, but the company talks about "hiring and keeping the top talent," and I don't feel like the offer completely reflects this.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Significant growth potential, very smart people, forward thinking culture. Company is filled with very smart people and creative leaders. Performance measures are extremely clear, robust systems to track career goals.
    Amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Not as great as before the acquisition. Somewhat "cultish"- you love it and you're "in" or you're not. Creative leadership can also be viewed as non- decisive and constantly changing. Huge waves of great talent have left the organization.

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home, very flexible schedule, great support system in place, no micormanagement

    Cons

    During Annual Enrollment you will log a ton of hours, go to work, come home eat dinner,and log back in.
    Because AH is the world leader, we use a lot of proprietary systems/software. This doesn't allow employees to learn modern 3rd party software and technology. Company has TOO MANY referenced locations and resource locations. Knowledge is everywhere and it is exhausting to find it all. Pay is below market value

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep modernizing the firm! Great support to employees keep it up

    Pros

    A lot of flexibility, ability to work remotely for many roles, nice people to work with, and excellent healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    I have been working at Aon Hewitt as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I find my co-workers are friendly and helpful. They are willing to help answer your questions when you are not entirely sure what you are doing.

    Cons

    Personally, I find managers are working remotely might not be the best model in building strong relationships with teams that are at different locations.
