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.

    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.

    Nice place to work, given the industry, but don't expect frequent opportunities to advance your career.

    Pros

    The senior management has a lot of experience and is steering the company in the right direction. They also employ very talented people and understand the need for a home/work balance. It is also a moderately relaxed environment and many of the employees have worked there for many years.

    Cons

    The products/services offered can quickly become stale to work with. In general, the industry is usually behind the times in many areas and this company is no stranger to that disease. Opportunities for advancement depend on your department, but are generally slim. The pay is fair to average. There is often "red tape" where it does not need to be and sometimes a lack of experience in jobs where it is crucially needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk more to mid-level managers before making decisions that severely affect certain departments (like cutting jobs in areas where they need to actually be added). Encourage and reward people for finding and streamlining unnecessarily complicated processes, which save the company money. For the most part, keep up the good work in supporting the growth of the firm.
