    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time

    Pros

    The pay was good for a call center. Weekends off is always great! There is always help available from managers and coworkers as well. They have potlucks and other activities throughout the year to keep you motivated. Good Training.

    Cons

    Everything is closely monitored as far as performance on calls. ATTENDANCE POLICY SUCKS, VERY STRICT ON ATTENDANCE and they do not work with schedules as far as school etc.

    Pros

    As long as an individual seems to be knowledgeable, dedicated, and ability to excel there is no limits

    Cons

    There are no cons unless I limit myself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To ensure that there is complete communication along with continuous feedback.

    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.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt as an intern

    Pros

    If you like staring at a computer screen your entire day this is for you. My manager was flexible with the hours I wanted to work.

    Cons

    I really didn't like training. There was so many issues with that.

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

    Pros

    Being part of the Launch program was really cool and the success flashes of all recent Aon client wins are really inspiring

    Cons

    This place is so insanely political. Office culture varies wildly depending on which location and department you're in, also they give absolutely insanely low vacation days,.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some sort of consistency in what you share with the company
