    Pros

    Get your career started, meet other people and make connections, and get out as fast as you can without getting hit with the door!

    Cons

    The hours, the incredible workload, the utter lack of support, the thankless accomplishments, the sneaky HR policies, the moral-crushing white boys' club.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are worth more than your money, because you'll eventually lose all the good people, and the money will follow them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It can pay fairly well. There are a lot of smart people there.

    Cons

    Aon is a very conservative, arrogant and stuffy culture. It's not progressive. The inflow of McKinsey consultants into Aon after Case took over brought Aon more discipline than the Ryan days, but it also brought even more arrogance and stubbornness to a culture. It's not a place that values diversity in any sense.

    Advice to Management

    Become more diverse. Quit hiring based on the country club memberships and lineage and start hiring more based on qualifications and accomplishments. Make changes at the C-level and bring in fresh blood to help Aon continue to progress.
