    I have been working at Aon Hewitt full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working remotely from home is a plus and a salary boost. Benefits are about average. Coworkers are great.

    Cons

    Constant (and I mean constant) change. Groups are reshuffled, renamed, bought, sold, etc quite often. I never get the sense of stability here.

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

    Pros

    Very good benefits program and for senior employees, an ability to defer compensation. What a great benefit. Great matching on 401K.

    Cons

    Stressful; expectations are very high for selling and perhaps unrealistic with growth expectations on margin.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    This is one of the world's leading HR consulting and outsourcing firms. There are a lot of talented folks who work here. The range of clients provides opportunities to work on diverse projects which can keep the rust off of your brain. Virual teams rule making this a great environment for telecommuting which helps with work/life balance.

    Cons

    There is more emphasis and support for growing the outsourcing side of the business. On the consulting side there is a continual push to provide clients with templated solutions which limits effectiveness and creativity in some cases. The direction for the consulting side of the business changes continually, flexibility and adaptability are big requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Look across the landscape for talent and give growth opportunities to people beyond the main campus.

    Advice to Management
