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

    Pros

    The work culture and atmosphere at Aon is terrific.

    Cons

    This is temporary employment, so you don't have set schedules. (even when you have a schedule)

    Advice to Management

    When hiring new agents, be honest in the job being temporary through the enrollment period. I was under the misconception I would be working from August to December. Instead, I worked a few weeks here or there, nothing straight through. I missed several opportunities for full-time employment.

    I worked at Aon full-time

    Pros

    Interesting work, working at one of the largest insurance/consulting firms in the world. And the people are great.

    Cons

    Very corporate, with little room to grow outside of defined roles. With the proper internal networking, you can work around this, and Aon is working to become more and more "startup-y" given their location.

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

    Pros

    Powerhouse company in many industries, general good work place if you have good people in your office, average pay, 15 vacation days per yer from day 1 (plus personal holidays, sick time, and company holidays), becoming much more transparent about career and pay progression

    Cons

    Working in consulting means long hours, even if they try to hide it when you are first hired. Always understaffed because people quit when it becomes too demanding, which ends up putting a higher burden on everyone else. Some offices (not all!) are still an old boys club, with the men favored at every level (even new hires). Constant buying of new companies and selling off of parts of Aon results in people not using the same systems, and people getting nervous whenever there is a big announcement ("will my department be leaving aon?")

    Advice to Management

    Starting hiring enough people in the first place, and maybe people will stop quitting because they are overworked. Educate all managers (at a minimum) on subtle sexism - the worst offenders never think *they* are the problem. Keep going with the new-ish push for diversity, especially in leadership. Work harder at integrating the groups you already have instead of just jumping to the next acquisition
