I worked at Aon full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Paid well. Good overall benefits.

Cons

Poor management. Does not create team cohesion. Too much bureaucracy. Very little innovation as a result of outsourcing everything including most IT functions, difficult governance model. Too many companies within the Aon umbrella which creates a difficult political environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Review managers by collecting honest feedback from subordinates. Your outsourced model is out-dated.

    I worked at Aon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great if you just want to collect a pay check.
    Easy to hide in the corporate structure
    Good benefits and mainly work from home schedule
    Could easily work from anywhere

    Cons

    Recognition is hard to obtain
    horrible leadership combined with poor decision making
    no investment into good management
    not quick enough to promote shining stars which lead to them leaving
    no succession planning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better leadership, invest in the good leaders that you have, and quickly clear out the legacy hewitt deadweight and learn to make a decision and not talk about it for weeks on end until its too late. I wish I could rate Sr Management a half star on the scale below. Best of luck. Cheers
