I have been working at Aon

Pros

The senior management team seems to have a good sense of what is required to bring Aon into the modern business world. They have made strong moves in developing market information databases and have a clear vision in which all decisions serve the purpose of helping our clients.

Cons

Management often seems to run the company as if they were still consultants at McKinsey. Everything is measured and relationships and subjective measurements can be overlooked on occasion. Certain offices are given much more attention than others as well. Working in Chicago, New York or LA is a much different experience than smaller offices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Finish what you have started. The foundation is now set for long-term success.

    I worked at Aon

    Pros

    Great medical benefits to choose from and provided by Blue Cross Blue Shield. Good bonus if performance ratings is above average. Flexible work hours as long as you do your work and behave in a mature way, allows to work from home if necessary. Good job stability with less day-to-day stress ensuring good work/life balance. Provides benefits for educational funding or professional certification funding.

    Cons

    Minimum growth opportunities in terms of career growth. Even if you get professional certifications, many a times it goes without notice. No appreciation for getting professional certifications although they would pay for it. You have to deal with a monster called "CSC" who is their infrastructure vendor causing ton of issues and project delays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop favouring people in your good books even if they fail to perform on numerous occassions. Move people around within the organization for professional and career growth.

    Company's always trying to save money, and sometimes it is to the detriment of the employees
