      I worked at Aon full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Very professional organization cares about ethics and doing the right thing

      Cons

      Pay was not competitive unless you played politics. Even if the company was doing well, the CEO wouldn't approve a decent merit budget. Stock holders came before employees

      Advice to Management

      Start giving more then 2% merit budgets

      I have been working at Aon full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      This is a great entry level job to get your foot in the door in the field of defined benefits and can help you gain experience to move forward in your career. It's also just a good way to gain general work experience. I have had positive experiences with management, and they are willing to work with you to help you through your tasks/ project. The culture of the company is fantastic. They do emphasize in growing you...

      Cons

      This department faces high turnover and can result in you receiving more work than you can handle. This job demands the stamina to talk to people about their pensions daily. It can get frustrating and tiring, which is probably the biggest driving force in the high turnover rates of this job. You'll be frequently interrupted in doing your on going work to answer these calls and that, on its own, is frustrating.
