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

    Pros

    Great benefits and work life balance.

    Cons

    There is no career path. They are fine with you staying in the same position your entire career with minimal raises. There is a lot of nepotism also which is very discouraging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward and recognize the employees.

    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.

    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.

    I have been working at Aon full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
