    Pros

    Two words: Best Practices. AON exercises what's known as best practices for companies in just about every single stage of being part of a Fortune 500 company. Benefits like 401(k) matching, health insurance, tuition reimbursement, PTO (personal holidays, vacation, sick), ref incentives, etc. And all the benefits start from day 1! Managers are approachable, my team is considered large and I honestly feel privileged to have all of them as co-workers. Everyone is very supportive and truly strive for personal and professional growth. The job itself can be stressful, but when you have a great team like I do everything just seems fantastic! I honestly can't describe how much I like and appreciate my job, I'm a critical thinker and my position requires just that from me on a daily basis. With that said, I feel right at home every day. Glad to be part of the team.

    Cons

    PTO time is hard to use, granted right off the bat you start off with a lot to be used, but if there are client needs to be met you can't use them until a day is available. Also, if there is going to be a blackout period to use PTO, then some PTO should be able to be carried over to the next year. Use it or lose it rule in this case is unnacceptable. Stressful job and maybe not enough pay for the amount of knowledge and responsibility on you, but with that said if this is an entry level position you'll start off with not the great pay but the right pay, then it becomes the great pay. because once you gain experience and are truly a veteran, the raises along the way will truly reflect your value and you will be getting paid what you deserve. But just like everything else in life, you have to earn it!

    Advice to Management

    My management team is awesome! To be completely honest. I've heard, and witnessed, how this may not be true for every team in every office, but I have to admit that my leadership team from upper-mid-lower management who directly interact with me are all awesome people! They understand that even though we are in a serious business, that can be stressful, keeping it light and having fun when you can and laughing is as important as getting the job done right! Love my team. Keep appreciating the CSRs that make your team great!

    hard to move up within the company, need to put in many years to get looked at for upper level position otherwise they will hire from outside

    make it easier for young professionals to grow within the company. the company is generally on the older side because the younger people leave

    Pros

    A number of very good and dedicated people work at Aon. Additionally, because of the size and global nature there are a number of opportunities an individual can pursue.

    Cons

    If you are in a non-client facing area there is extreme pressure to cut costs. The pressure is so extreme that Aon has a tendency to lose many good managers and leaders to other companies.
