    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company provided solid foundation of skills needed for an operations/analyst type of career/future. Provided exposure to both "back of house" operations and "front of house" operations. Company allows you to work from home as needed. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Company is full of "silo" roles and departments. Difficult to create new ideas and improvements when the company has a strong "client is always right" mentality. Prepare to work with offshore colleagues on a daily basis. Lots of colleagues work virtual regularly or choose to work at home during the week. If you prefer to work amongst a team and have a lot of contact with your team during the day in person, this is not the company/role for you. Several people that I personally worked with left the company because they were disengaged.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good structure to work within because they actually train you to use their tools and learn their processes. Very good benefits and decent pay. Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Due dates are unreasonable. Very stressful environment to work in. Management is not very experienced or helpful as a resource. Most have very little professional experience outside of Hewitt or training in people management. They tend to pigeon hold their employees who are doing well in one area.

    Advice to Management

    Really consider taking getting some additional education or training to learn how to manage people and motivate your employees. It doesn't make good business sense to put so much pressure on your team members to the point of discouraging them until they quit. When I was an employee nearly everyone that I knew quit because their personal managers put so much pressure on them that it no longer was a healthy environment to work in.

    Pros

    Work for this employer to gain experience and knowledge after college. Take as much training as possible, as your career grows continue to stay. You will burn out an know when it's time to leave.

    Cons

    Do not expect to have a work life balance. High turnover out of the Philadelphia/Radnor office in last 3-4 years. Robot mentality as opposed to treating their employees like people.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation for the people working very hard for you. Provide guidance to new hires on the culture and the way the office operates while also allowing them to do the job for which you hired them. Work from the assumption that people are good fair and honest. Treat people like the adults and respect their boundaries and need for balance.
