    Pros

    consistent feedback and recognition for a job well done, consistent employee outreach, wanting employee feedback. They always are innovating the tools we need to easily access any information we need to better ourselves or be better acquainted with the company and it's values/mission

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons at this point. Working virtually has it's pros and cons, but although we work virtually, we still remain extremely connected!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work

    I worked at Aon as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed interning with Aon. I was given comprehensive projects that enhanced my learning of the insurance business and what brokers and underwriters look at in a company when determining policies. There were also a lot of young people in the office, which made me feel more comfortable in the office.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Aon

    Pros

    Generally nice friendly people, location is desirable as it is right in downtown and close to shops and restaurants, some management are smart however some middle management are not and it really suprise me how they get promoted. 401K matches 6% which is pretty good.

    Cons

    Some middle management get promoted based on relationship with their superior and not necessarily based on skill set. Pay is mediocre.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should impose upward management feedback.
