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

    Pros

    Great culture, immediate exposure and responsibility to the clients, team environment.

    Cons

    Very small year or year salary increases, performance does not have any significant impact on how fast you are promoted or how much you are paid relative to your peers, no clear growth trajectory,

    Advice to Management

    Develop ways to communicate and execute growth plans for top performing employees; increased transparency for "what would the next 5 or 10 years look like if I stayed here..."

    I worked at Aon full-time

    Pros

    The overall corporate culture was very pleasant, welcoming and flexible.

    Cons

    They look to hire young people in an effort to pay them the least. Many of the colleagues on my particular team did not exemplify the overall culture of the company, it seemed like my political views were a big problem for one of the project managers I worked with, even though I never expressed them at all to my colleagues, I think they looked at my postings on social media and took offense to my view points.

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be more involved in mentoring and guiding younger colleagues.

    I worked at Aon full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
