    Pros

    Decent benefits for retirement. Opportunities to work on different things. I believe the pay is good. Many would say that's not the case, but I think based on the market, they pay very good.

    Cons

    Senior Mgmt is more concerned with the stock price than with the development of their internal talent. IT (my area) is always considered an issue for the company, but Aon is reluctant or not understanding how to reinvest into the IT structure. (There still is no company DR plan in place since 9/11---if there was, there would have been drills). Training and Education out of the company is not expected. Only training thru Aon University is expected. If you want to learn something outside your area, you're on your own. Also, trying to find answers for simple things, via the online portal, takes way too long. Many managers at Aon are not taught how to manage...they reach a certain stage and are given the spot and expected to figure it out. The best managers at Aon, come from other companies that have invested the time to train people to run an area and manage the people. AND, the politics at Aon are to say the least, incredible.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about the stock price and reinvest in your infrastructure and people. Many times when Aon needs to reduce costs, their lower level, poorly trained managers usually go to cutting staff, overstressing the remaining staff to do the work, instead of creative ways, via updating systems and applications or giving additional training to staff.

    Pros

    Exposure to Illiquid asset classes and availability to meet with some of the brightest managers around.

    Cons

    Compensation not great, losing a lot of talented individuals to different firms, different parts of the business do not interact well with one another (delegated ocio vs. advisory).

    Advice to Management

    Improve compensation to retain talent.
