    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Winston-Salem, NC
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Winston-Salem, NC
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - It's a job that pays pretty decent
    - The hours are not bad
    - I love the clients I handle
    - Most employees have awesome personalities, I work with great people

    Cons

    - Horrible training for new employees.
    - They tell employees the same day (or day before) that they have mandatory overtime all week. People do have lives outside of the job!
    - Management rates their employees based on how they feel towards them, not on job performance.
    - Eliminate all of the unecessary performance measures. Employees fail because you measure everything they do.
    - Unfair promotions; if you kiss butt and are a complete idiot, you will probably get promoted.
    - Overworking the best employees; I work with numerous people that have worked there 3+ years and have been a CSR the entire time, yet management uses them as trainers and supervisors. You lose good employees by overlooking them for promotions.
    - Management is BEYOND incompetent. They have absolutely no knowledge about anything other than "metrics".

    Advice to Management

    - Get educated about what Aon does
    - Stop treating employees like slaves (and speaking to them that way)
    - Learn the clients you handle! You cannot pass judgement on employees about how they do their job if you don't know what their tasks are or about the client they take care of.
    - Do some work, stop micromanaging and watching every move your employees make.
    - Please stop making decisions without considering the effect it will have on your employees; mistakes are made and the morale is low because you disregard your employees.

    "Good company to work for although bonuses are subpar due to overall region performance, not group performance."

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Recommends
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance
    Company Culture
    Well respected organization
    Innovative and strategic
    Leader in the industry
    Growth through acquisitions
    Global consulting firm

    Cons

    Pay is less than expected in the industry. Bonuses are seemingly non-existent. Lay-offs occurred while CEO was paid his $20M salary and bonus. Mass group exodus in certain practices to competitors.

    Advice to Management

    Worry about retaining your "unmatched talent" through compensation and pay incentives. Aon is nothing if not its people. Value that.
