Good company to work for although bonuses are subpar due to overall region performance, not group performance.

I have been working at Aon

Pros

Work/Life Balance
Company Culture
Well respected organization
Innovative and strategic
Leader in the industry
Growth through acquisitions
Global consulting firm

Cons

Pay is less than expected in the industry. Bonuses are seemingly non-existent. Lay-offs occurred while CEO was paid his $20M salary and bonus. Mass group exodus in certain practices to competitors.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Worry about retaining your "unmatched talent" through compensation and pay incentives. Aon is nothing if not its people. Value that.

    Amazingly, every week it's a little bit worse.

    Pros

    Hey, it's a port in a storm. Huge company with plenty of work to do, so if you can figure out the bureaucracy it is possible to plug your skills into a given project, get some skills and some half decent pay.

    Cons

    A series of complicated mergers over the last ten years have resulted in an extremely complex environment especially in the Information Technology space where I work. There may be over 30 different support lines for individual colleagues to call for IT support, hundreds of legacy environments, dozens of domains, insourcers, outsourcers, vendors and a complete lack of coherence. Other internal operations such as Financial and HR seem similarly convoluted. It's a MADHOUSE, a MADDDDHOUUUUSE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop. What you are doing is not working. Go play golf and quit making deals. *sigh*

    Improve team dynamics and reduce incentive for workers to push their own agenda.
