    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 Management

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

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

    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 Management

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