    I worked at Aon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Get to work with talented people, decent benefits (not pay), and opportunities for growth depending on the client teams you are assigned (each team and office can be different though).

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay (friends at other companies with similar number of exams and experience were making over 5 thousand more a year while working significantly less hours), work life/balance does not exist at lower levels, some of the upper level consultants are only in their position for "sticking it out" rather than being a top performer.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to retain key talent. Cut the deadweight at the top. Promote the people that work more hours, spend time in the office, and improve employee moral.

    I worked at Aon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    nice offices and good bar in the board room

    Cons

    office politics is game only for the strongest and to excel at Aon one must be stronger than than the rest.

    Advice to Management

    employees are human and should be treated with respect, not as chattels to be disposed of when slightly tarnished

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

    Pros

    Few. The worker bees work really hard but management does nothing to engage them. The only other pro is the work from home culture. They are very big on this as it saves them $$$.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Management does nothing to improve engagement. Inexperienced managers everywhere in the IT organization. None of the managers are leaders. Everyone is pulling in different directions. This makes for extra work for the worker bees, and the management does not care.Take my advice and stay away.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees. Be honest with them. Treat them as peers not children. Don't be afraid of them because they are more knowledgeable than you. Reward.
