I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Strong global brand, and very well respected in the various industries it is involved in. -Work/Life balance is outstanding. Most employees have the option of working from home. If you're ambitious/aggressive, you can quickly move up the ranks and take on more responsibility. If you refer to coast by, that's also possible (as long as you're getting your work done). In other words, you have a lot of control over your career progression. -Compensation is competitive. Great benefits (unsurprising, considering this is an HR firm!). -Very professional atmosphere. Colleagues are friendly and easy to work with. HR is taken very seriously here. -Executive and senior management have strong credentials, and actually know how to manage (from what I've seen). -The IT infrastructure is pretty solid, which makes it very convenient for consultants to work while mobile.

Cons

-If you're coming from a smaller, leaner company, getting used the bureaucracy and red tape can be frustrating. -As with many larger companies, Aon Hewitt tends to deal with the market in a reactive rather than proactive manner. Company growth is more dependent on acquisitions, rather than dramatic increases in performance. -Although other offices may be different, the Chicago offices aren't high energy workplaces (at the time of this writing). Things are changing though; recruiting has been stepped up, and new waves of employees are being hired.

Advice to Management

Focus on succession planning and recruiting. This has become a very old company, and we need new blood!

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In Talent and Rewards, they certainly understand your need for career growth and try to help you reach your goals. Recruitment Processing Outsourcing (RPO) helps you learn new skills.

    Cons

    In Recruitment Processing Outsourcing (RPO) they are not interested in helping your career grow but would like you to stay where you are doing great work. If you are retired or just not interested in career growth then I think this is perfect otherwise if you are ambitious I would not recommend joining this group.

    Advice to Management

    So far I am satisfied and don't have any advice to Management besides keep doing what you do best.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Subject matter expertise is highly valued

    Cons

    Vast amounts of favoritism and workplace relationships led to employee disengagement and low morale

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring the same type of personality for their ability to say yes, regardless of the situation. Seek outside input. Leadership is inbreed, closed minded and bad leaders in general.
