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

    Pros

    Company is a long time player in benefits administration and outsourcing. They did just get bought out this year though by Blackstone and are now Alight Solutions.

    Cons

    Promise of abundant opportunities but doesn't deliver. Incompetent management at least in my department.

    Advice to Management

    A true leader is also a servant and willing to help grow others. It's not about flaunting power. Please put management through leadership training. Management is definitely run by a who you know and not what you know philosophy.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance was good. Allowed to use sick and vacation time once you work 90 days.

    Cons

    Training very poor. Not proficient in job before required to perform duties. Medical Benefits are too expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Better training would be beneficial to your company to keep good employees.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with and lots of flexibility to work remotely.

    Cons

    Offshore, dealing with internal politics, lots of red tape and no work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Help streamline/automate process. Do more things onshore (US) vs offshore. Focus more on the client than internal measures.

    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.

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

    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.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The Variety of food available in the cafeteria was good.
    The managers were nice, but some of the supervising employees suck!

    Cons

    The place is humongous and with lunches limited to 30 minutes only, it was difficult to get to the cafeteria, get your food and sit down to eat it before you had to take the extremely long trek back to your desk.

    The work hours for the temps and contracted employees are crazy long, especially with them only offering 30 minute lunches.

    If you are hoping to get hired in this place, forget it. Everyone that works here is either a temp, a contracted employee, or a permanent person working on borrowed time. What I mean by that is, if you get hired and the work you do is for another company (this is a TPA Company : a Third Party Administrator) If that company does not need the number of employees doing their work for them and want Aon Hewitt to downsize the number of employees, then you may still lose your job. So, with that said, don't go and buy a house or a car if you are working for them, because you may lose it.

    No Benefits or Vacation
    Work/Life Balance is non-existent

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

    Pros

    Lots of benefit option, great 401k

    Cons

    Upper management had favorites and if you were not one of the chosen ones you had a real hard time.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all employees

    Pros

    They used to have free lunch and breakfast but not any more. The walk around the lake at lunch was nice.

    Cons

    You could be a teacher and get paid more. They changed the benefits but didn't change the pay scale. If you were on the healthcare side you worked insane hours during open enrollment.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people or get acquired....oh, wait....never mind.
