    I have been working at Aon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I could grow old with Aon. Leadership is very supportive. There is plenty of opportunity to develop yourself if you are committed to the process. Aon provides vast resources to employees and clients. I would find it difficult to fail at Aon.

    Cons

    The medical plan choices and costs are starting to tip towards uncompetitive. All other benefits, including retirement, are very generous and sufficient.

    Advice to Management

    I've seen great improvements in the streamlining of systems and procedures since my hire a couple years ago. However, there is still more improvements needed to reduce the number of systems and duplicative procedures. The hours spent maintaining these systems and procedures could be better spent winning and retaining clients, or developing team members.

    I worked at Aon as an intern

    Pros

    I really enjoyed interacting with executives day in and day out. I was taught proper business office etiquette and learned a lot of useful business skills. My boss and those ahead of her created a great work environment and taught me a lot.

    Cons

    The work i was given was pretty boring, the office was pretty dull. It was hard to tell where the company was going for the future and who was going to be around for the long run.

    Advice to Management

    Organize events for the whole team and get everyone excited to be at work. Promote growth throughout the company and do a better job training!

    I worked at Aon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working at Aon is like having an extended family. Great starting salaries, benefits, yearly raises, and great people to work with.

    Cons

    If an office is downsizing, you never know who is going to be laid off. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. It's difficult to know your job may be in jeopardy at any moment. Fortunately this does not happen often.

    Advice to Management

    One thing about Aon is that they spend an exuberant amount of money giving perks to their VIP clients and prospects. It would be nice if more of their profits were spent on community and employee morale as it once did in the New York office.

    I have been working at Aon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Global corporation, many resources, good people, plenty of chance to learn new things, opportunity for career growth, etc.

    Cons

    Just as any big corporation, there are people who seem to be in the comfort zone for years and lost their desire to strive. These are demoralizing factors for the team and they also create frustration in terms of teamwork

    Advice to Management

    There isn't much I can suggest here. I think we need to be careful when it comes to team dynamics as one rotten apple can mess up the entire chemistry.

    Pros

    The Los Angeles office has a great culture. The team and local management are very collaborative and seek to really help you grow your career.

    Cons

    Slow to increase compensation for employees. New employees with fewer qualifications seem to be compensated well, while people who have been with the company for awhile get small increases.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let good talent get away - pay attention to great talent that might feel neglected and reward the people who work hard.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits, leadership, career growth opportunities.

    Cons

    The only downside I have to share is that I had to turn down a promotion for personal reasons. The new role would have required my relocating from Irvine, CA to Chicago, IL. At the time that wasn't something I could do.
