    Pros

    Benefits are good and hours are flexible. This company values their associates and encourages team building! Even with them leading the market in global reinsurance you still feel like you work for a small and personalized company!

    Cons

    I'd like to have a bigger emphasis on growing and developing within the company. Preparation to help you get to the next level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to create a fun working environment, treating associates like they matter, their opinions count and they are valuable to your success.

    Houston office has a dismal work environment - crammed people in too small space

    Current Employee - Account Specialist  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Account Specialist in Houston, TX

    Pros

    You will be challenged with all types of work but too much of it.

    Cons

    You will be doing the work that Senior brokers and Account Executives should be doing. They will take credit for your work while they are out playing golf or traveling. They will throw you under the bus if you make a mistake. The goal is to churn revenue. Service isn't important, just revenue. The IT and Help desk are in Delhi so good luck with that. The certs are also done in Delhi so don't expect to get one quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit allowing sales guys to act like idiots and promise things that nobody can deliver. Get some real leaders in the office who aren't focused on themselves. The real leaders that everyone looked to have left.
    They were replaced with YES Men who are only interested in themselves.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Pay is good and benefits are excellent. If you are in the Property side life is much better than the poor benefit guys. The office is successful and you reap those benefits. It's a large corporation and all the benefits you will reap. Great name recognition.

    Cons

    It's a revolving door. If your not part of the fraternity you are not part of the plan. Since there is no plan you can still survive. The is no direction or long term plan communicated by middle management. Senior management gets it but are often stretched beyond what they can handle. It's then left to mostly incompetent middle level frat boys.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your middle level guys better. Many rise to the level of their incompetence.

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Account Executive  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Account Executive in Houston, TX

    Pros

    There is no room for personal growth just try to keep up with everything that is thrown at you. Work life balance is unheard of unless you are a Senior Broker or in the Energy Group

    Cons

    Trying to determine how to work thru the land mines of the fraternity. There is no winning in the Houston office. If you are not white and male, forget about it. Look around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the ridiculous Salespeople that are put on a pedestal. Quit allowing Senior people to hand off technical work to kids that are 23 and 24.

    Like any other big corporation, Aon chooses not to develop a loyal employee base

    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Senior Account Specialist  in  Washington, DC
    Current Employee - Senior Account Specialist in Washington, DC

    Pros

    Flexible hours and comparatively decent benefits.

    Cons

    In order to get a salary increase in line with the cost of living, you need to get a new job, no matter how well you're doing in your current one. It often seems that Aon would rather hire an outsider than develop the staff they have into leadership positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You say you want to develop talent, start doing it.
