    I have been working at Aon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Laid back, flexible office environment. Admins don't get bonuses like everyone else in the office. Company offers 401K matching.

    Cons

    Horrible health benefits - you have to pay through the nose to get decent coverage, otherwise you have to settle for a high deductible plan. Not much room for advancement. No pride or ownership of work product - nobody really cares about what they do because the company never acknowledges or rewards it. This place is depressing.

    Advice to Management

    Need more communication and leadership in the office. People need to be rewarded and need to enjoy the workplace if you want them to really perform and care about the company.

    I have been working at Aon full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a living. The company is making money.

    Cons

    Morale is poor. Profts not shared across workplace. Internal technology is out of date. Org chart is spaghetti. Left hand doesn't know what right hand is doing. Process improvement needs are critical. Firmwide communication doesn't like to actual work leaving colleagues going "huh?" Integration of various acquisitions stalled. No consistent culture. Loyalty not rewarded. Old processes. Ego driven leadership. HQ bailed on Chicago to more 'laissez faire' environment in UK. Cheap. Lots of inexperienced contractors and inexpensive offshores. No clear lines of accoutability. Constant rework of talent management processes. Accounting is confusing. Disengaged VPs. Blame game. Almost governmental approach to tasks. Units can refuse work. Surprise layoffs. Huge disparity in comp across organization. Biggest claim to fame is sponsoring Manchester United, really? Important deals ironed out on golf course. Overselling and under delivering. Lack of respect. Bad coffee.

    Advice to Management

    I don't even know where to start.
