    I have been working at Aon full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are great people working very very hard in the IT organization.

    Cons

    IT leadership does not care about the people. The company has a program to keep good talent but IT does not follow it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit focusing on increasing profits. You could spend a fraction of those profits to improve engagement and improve the IT infrastructure which would benefit all.

    Pros

    Senior management slow to change. Great environment to learn as much as possible about insurance/reinsurance industry and the convergence of capital markets into the space.

    Cons

    Very political, not much in the way of vacation/personal days, and could do better with little perks/benefits. Coffee is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate employees who outperform their peers and take on more responsibility. Get rid of the deadwood lying around and hire people who will perform.

    Pros

    Manager is great. HUGE company so it seems you are working on an island at times. I was able to keep my job and work from another office when my family moved... that flexibility is priceless

    Cons

    You have to be your own advocate. Easy to get lost in the gears. Reach out to contacts to network. Raises are minimal so you need to sell yourself and prove value. Normal major corporate complaints abound.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act on the desire to keep talent instead of just talking about it. Balance better the rewards to shareholders and employees.
