    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, leadership, career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    The only downside I have to share is that I had to turn down a promotion for personal reasons. The new role would have required my relocating from Irvine, CA to Chicago, IL. At the time that wasn't something I could do.

    National wide management style is a little bit tough for employees in different locations.

    I worked at Aon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent benefits, good locations, quality clients.

    Cons

    Branch 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 Management

    No matter how much it pretends to be sensitive to the employees, Aon's senior and corporate management doesn't really listen to them.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Realize that employee motivation and provided incentives are correlated.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Continually 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 Management

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

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

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    People 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

    Cons

    Although 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 Management

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