    Pros

    AON Hewitt is a very reputable company. Working here has provided with a lot of knowledge about health and welfare. I also feel very secure with this employment.

    Cons

    With the amount of work that you will manage, the compensation just is not enough .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees. Every employee wants to feel appreciated.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The department was really close, which made working a very pleasurable experience. They gave me a reasonable work load and I learned a lot from the tasks I was assigned.

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons pertinent to my work experience at Aon. They did a great job and I learned a lot from my time there.

    Pros

    You will have various opportunities to learn new things and you will be able to perform in a group. Your learning curve will never end in such a good company, because every day will be a new challenge for you

    Cons

    If you choose to to do consulting, then it will be hard for you to have a very balance life style.

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

    Pros

    Company values dedication and hard work; committed to diversity and ensuring that colleagues have a great work/life balance. Competitive pay and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    As part of a larger company (Aon/Aon Hewitt) we're sometimes not fully aware of corporate changes/direction but (executive and) leadership at all levels are really working to improve communications; they truly care what colleagues think.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue sharing what's happening within other areas of the organization; more is better.

    Pros

    GREAT benefits! Great tools, Medical Clinic, cafeteria pay advances. Even when things seem rough I always got my 3% raise minimum.

    Cons

    Management, its more of who you know. Kissing up comes in handy. watch your back, people can't wait to see you slip and throw you under the bus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance based on Merit not by who is who.

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

    Pros

    -Decent selection of health and welfare benefits
    -Instant vesting in 401k at a good %
    -If you are technical the work is pretty easy, so you can make yourself look pretty good
    -Decent training, lots of access to training materials
    -Fairly easy workload 75% of the year if you are in H&W
    -Work from home
    -Sweet stock purchase program

    Cons

    -Sept through Dec can be miserable due to the workload, if you are in H&W
    -Low pay in comparison to competitors
    -Weird bonus pay that doesn't reward performance
    -Meaningless raises, both rate and merit
    -Managers actively try to keep you in "business unit", instead of looking in your best interest
    -Managers don't seem to care about employees who want to grow career, move fast
    -All tools and tech are mostly proprietary
    -Tech divided into service groups that are difficult to work with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The raises are laughable and don't even cover cost of living increases. Also it has become quite apparent that my managers want to keep me in their unit, so the only way I'm ever getting to the next level is if I seek out a new position. I feel like it's being punished for being good at my job. I'm not going to wait around for when it works best for them to possibly promote me within their group.
