  2. Excellent work/life balance, mediocre pay. If you value work/life balance this is a great company to work for.

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

    Pros

    -Excellent work/life balance for the tech HRO roles. This is probably one of the few private sector companies where you consistently work 40 hour weeks. Huge advantage coming from a 50-60 hour week position at a previous employer.
    -No travel which is a plus
    -Ability to work remotely
    -excellent 401k match (6%)
    -Kaiser for health insurance which is a great value
    -Opportunities to transfer internally to other business units

    Cons

    Pay raises and bonuses are mediocre at best (averages slightly below the CPI/inflation indexed COLA annual increases, slightly higher for individuals that are higher performers). This is an obvious tradeoff of the excellent work/life balance. The consistent theme of mediocre pay raises from other reviews leads me to believe that the pay raise issue is endemic to Aon Hewitt as a whole across all levels from management to entry level. I think that the Human Resources (Aon Hewitt) contribution to the overal profit margin of Aon as a whole is less when compared to Consulting, Risk Management and Insurance/Reinsurance. This could explain lower starting pay/pay raises/bonuses in HRO compared to positions in these other business areas. A prospective employee should be aware of the perceived pay issues before accepting a position with Aon Hewitt.

    I have been working at Aon Hewitt

    Pros

    Paid time off, lots of other positions to advance to-if you know someone to connect you.

    Cons

    Everyone is on the same annual review raise percentage. While some people do so much more work-they get paid the same as the one who simply show up to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward the employees with skills and positive attitude with a better pay raise. My last annual pay raise was $1,090. My rent increased more than my pay raise.

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

    Pros

    To get your foot in the door in the hope of being able to move to another position within the company for growth.

    Cons

    Micro-management of everything that you do from lunch hour to customer calls to asking questions. Team Leaders are only protective of their "favorites". Treat employees like cattle. Mandatory overtime during peak season & expected to work from 52 to 70 hours per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like adults and learn that employees are people who want to do a good job.
