    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time

    Pros

    I thought it was a great place to work, with great people, and great benefits. I worked in the headquarters in Illinois, so I enjoyed the Starbucks and the big Cafeteria. In the summers, our team would alternate leaving early on Fridays. It provided a nice work/life balance. Unfortunately, I had to leave because of military relocation.

    Cons

    The department I was in didn't have much room for growth. The promotions seemed to take quite some time. Although, I heard from a friend who still works there that they've added some additional titles to help with that.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Met a lot of talented and hard working folks. If you are willing to pay your dues, work above and beyond, you can have a long successful career

    Cons

    Very fast pace and requires lots of additional hours.. This company thrives on internal and client mtgs where it's not abnormal to be on conference calls as early as 6am or late as 10 pm conference calls. Salaries tend to be flat and difficult to get what you are worth without leaving and returning at a later point in your career

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule was often good for work/life balance.

    Cons

    Management was poor and played favorites with certain employees while shutting others out on a regular basis. Salary was quite low.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to be more proactive then reactive whenever a client problem occurs. Lead by a better example to employees overall instead of simply watching out for themselves and their own well being.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time

    Pros

    A lot of autonomy and friendly coworkers.

    Cons

    Lack of engagement effort and subpar benefits especially for a company that consults on both of the aforementioned.

    Advice to Management

    Take more initiative to raise engagement levels and offer an improved benefits program that would get Aon onto its own Best Employers list.
