    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The coffee was excellent. The cafeteria was convenient.
    I worked for Aon Retiree Health Exchange, enrolling retirees who were being transitioned off their employer group health plans and it was fraught with legal regulations. In the beginning they didn't even know how to do it we were not properly trained or maintained. As they realized a mistake they would punish us for it and act like we should have known when they didn't even know. Many legal regulations.

    Cons

    The supervisors and executives have very punitive style of management. After they used everyone to enroll 250,000 ATT retirees & after that job was accomplished, they began firing people for not complying with the new rigid quality. If you scored below 90% you could be fired. They could score you however they wanted to score you. They began hiring new employees at $3 less per hour so they began to just chose someone to fire. They never fired black people, it's true, I was there two years and I watched. Lots of psychological attacks by management. they fired me and denied me unemployment after I had enrolled close to 450 people for them making roughly $200,000 for them in my first year, maybe more. They are greedy. They told TX Workforce I was fired for misconduct, I appealed and won the hearing. Don't work for them unless you like to be in codependent relationships. The energy there is just oppressive if you are a sensitive person you will notice it right away. This place is a sweatshop. We made a fortune of money for them the first two years and they lowered our bonus package way below what was promised at hire. The upper management just took the profit for themselves and the way they honored their employees who made the money for them was to lower our bonus from $20 to $15 with thresholds that made it where we didn't get even the $15 for most of our enrollments and they were making about $425 or more or less per enrollment. Sweatshop.

    Advice to Management

    Be a real human being, grow a heart. Metrics are not everything. Improve your training. Change they way you score quality, use it as a tool to teach and improve rather than punish. Don't slam your fist on the table when concurring with your employees. Research psychological attack and stop using it to intimidate your employees. Stop lying to your employees or contradicting yourselves. Don't expect your employees to know what you don't know yourselves and then react punitively. I think it's called hypocrisy.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and managers are expected to help their people grow.
    Good work environment, comfortable office setting, and ability to work from home for some positions.

    Cons

    Low pay, difficult to move from one department to another, and losing many very good and long tenured people.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to move departments. I witnessed several very qualified people who were turned down for department moves due to subjective matrices; most notably manager review being 0.1% less than required amount even though the employee was doing about 20% of the managers duties for team support. After securing other employment offers for positions were made, but it was too late and too little money.

    Pros

    There are a number of good hearted talented employees

    Cons

    Highly segmented and isolated atmosphere with zero esprit de corp. Also some management has adopted a rule by fear and intimidation approach - employees are treated as resources and the complete lack of mission is depressing. Team building "empowerment" emails are a sad joke.

    Pros

    Hours. cafeteria onsite. Coworkers. location. flex time availability.

    Cons

    Promised Overtime during the interview to compensate for the salary starting rate (they started me at the max per HR). Found out there is no overtime, if you work late, you come in late the next day, OT is not allowed.

    Advice to Management

    No problem with management.
