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

    Pros

    If you know the right people you will get promoted quickly into different positions. They have a cafe and Starbucks on site. They have parking close to the building if your carpooling or pregnant. They have 401k company match up to 6% I believe and pretty good health and welfare benefits. You meet a lot of great smart people.

    Cons

    Time off policies for customer service are based off the companies service levels that you are assigned to, so they often block days. All the managers who manage customer service associate are different, even though they claim they follow the same guidelines as one another. Micromanagement is an issue. They do tuition reimbursement for degrees and when you graduate they don't even utilize you. Interviewers for jobs are so different because it's people from the team like a manager, client manger, ect. So some are looking for the most qualified and some hire people with no experience. Depending on the team you are on you are limited to growth potential because you don't get any projects and trainings that can help you advance like other teams may be offerded. Also management is not helpful in allowing you to grow in the company they act like they want you to stay in the same position the whole time your employed. You also see alot cliques within the company. They also pay less than there competitors for similar positions but will work you like a dog. They promote work life balance but then you can't take off, and if you call in your looked down upon by other associates and managers. They have lost a lot of talented people do to a lot of these things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging associates that do not need it. Learn to talk to your employees with respect like you value them. Learn to utilize and promote your qualified and educated employees. Practice what you preach.

    Former Employee - Communication in Lincolnshire, IL

    I worked at Aon Hewitt as a contractor (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Broad range of interesting clients and industries, so that makes working for Aon Hewitt Interesting. Pretty good attempt by company culture to do the right thing. There are some really good people here who maintain good working relationships under challenging situations.

    Cons

    Time requirements and demands can be challenging, sometimes lack of communication can be frustrating. Lack of ability to push business solutions that benefit clients are often hindered by slow company processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage independence and ability to fail when stretching for performance improvements. More flexibility negotiating contracts for outside vendors would be helpful.
