    Aon

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsDecent benefits, good locations, quality clients.

    ConsBranch managers and rank & file account managers frequently don't comply with corporate standards. Constant in-fighting among senior branch managers. Gimicky corporate initiatives that waste time and often fade away. Dishonest employee performance review system. Degraded HR department with unhelpful managers located far away. Corporate IT is missing in action if you're not with the right office - it often takes weeks or months to repair computer problems because IT is outsourced. Branch offices and departments often don't communicate very well with each other.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNo matter how much it pretends to be sensitive to the employees, Aon's senior and corporate management doesn't really listen to them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Those with ambition never stay more than 4 years

    Account Specialist I (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsStrong career choice for those interested in office politics over product technicalities.

    ConsStable. Does not require independent thinking. Products are simple. Company's role in industry is on its last leg.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that employee motivation and provided incentives are correlated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Middle of the road

    Senior Vice President (Current Employee) Newport Beach, CA

    ProsThe people I work with a cross the US and world are great.

    ConsContinually work is pushed down when there are broken programs etc. How much time do they think we can create since we already have a day job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuick pushing work down and then say thank you. You really do t understand the impact to morale.

    I loved working there but they tend to lay people off quickly

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Lake Forest, CA

    ProsPeople were great to work with, the support was great, the benefits and perks were outstanding and the best in the industry, and it was the best job I've had

    ConsAlthough they shower employees with great benefits and perks, they tend to lay people off quickly and nobody really knows if their jobs are secure

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee loyalty is essential. When people don't know of their future, they will not want to contribute much
