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

    Pros

    Working in a smaller team and with other offices gives opportunity for learning. Given the opportunity to transfer roles. They cover educational expenses when appropriate.

    Cons

    Tricky to negotiate salary as they use scales. Not much room at junior levels to reward top performers. Having issues retaining top talent (only trying to compete with direct competitors not other client markets that are strong in certain areas.) Benefits could be more generous.

    Advice to Management

    Touch base more often with employees on career goals and performance issues. a few times a year isn't quite enough.
