    I worked at Aon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working there was a good overall experience. Many people in the local office felt like family. My division had many employee appreciation activities on a regular basis. Employees could nominate colleagues for All-Star awards for recognition of outstanding achievements and "extra mile" efforts.

    Cons

    As with any large company, even while growing, there was often a philosophy to do more with less.

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

    Pros

    There is okay work life balance just depending on who you work under in the company. But by the book it is not so great of a balance.

    Cons

    Low Pay, Low morale, No place to advance, Upper Management does not care or appreciate its employees and their contribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensate your employees what they are worth...based on education, experience, length of employment and how they perform. Do not cap off raises at 2% and not give that 2% to hardly anyone but those who know someone.

    Pros

    Stable company, most of the people here are amazing

    Cons

    Management is not always well trained to handle a team. Brokers often treat admins badly and end up being the reason there is a high rate of turnover.
