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

    Pros

    The pay and the benefits were good. The job was comfortable if you like the corporate setting. If you like fast paced or a competitive edge then you will like this.

    Cons

    The downside for me was the constant reviewing of your performance. You have to constantly worry about if you are doing good or not. Meeting adherence daily can be a challenge.

    Pros

    Flexibility, work culture, get to work on a variety of projects and areas, have the option to work remote, not a lot of micro managing and you really get to own your work load

    Cons

    Pay below industry average, the company is a global company so even though your group seems small and nimble, there are instances where you have to endure the pains of big company bureaucracy

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

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling. Good vacation hours/PTO.
    Vacation hours are paid out when you leave.
    Good training. Constant interaction with managers.

    Cons

    - NO GROWTH
    - Pay is petty change

    Where do I begin...... Started this position after graduating college in hopes that it would be aligned with HR specific opportunities. Went through the interview process and was told that it would be related to HR. Woooo great! Only to find out later when you're in training that you're working in a CALL CENTER. If you have a degree and the slightest bit of potential, do NOT take this job.

    You will be praised by your managers and directors for your excellent quality, persistence, and overall attitude BUT when you ask for greater challenges, it's as if they shuffle it to the side and just feed you with BS that there are opportunities ahead. What? A dollar raise when you're promoted after wasting 6 months of your time? Only will they present opportunities to you where you use a molecule of your brain and most importantly, when you put in your two weeks to leave they scramble to keep you even though they knew it was bound to happen.

    Overall, if you are someone who has to be told what to do, likes strict structure and just want something that gives you pennies for compensation and someone who does not have high expectations for yourself, by all means, this is the job for you.

    BUT, if you are smart and want a challenge do not take it. Shame on me for my mistakes on not reading the reviews and doing my research.

    Advice to Management

    If you have young, ambitious talent, CAPITALIZE ON IT. If not, they will go work for a competitor, as such. Sadly, managers know who is capable of more, stop using them just to make your bottom line better. It's time to wake up managers.
