    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Competent coworkers that can teach you many things.

    Cons

    The upper management is very incompetent. They are disconnected from their workers and often do not know what is going on in their own offices. The bad professional reputation of office managers has prevented many offices from finding work. You will not be recognized for hard work and will be expected to put in very late hours on a regular basis. Office managers promise their employees promotions and always find a way to back out at the last minute. The CEO just left the company to go work for its main rival after doing a very poor job of managing Schirmer. His replacements will be even worse.

    Advice to Management

    Stop selling out your employees. You can only hide Dubai money from AON for so long.


  2. "A good company on the decline due to clueless and dictatorial Aon management"

    Pros

    Some of the remaining people are good mentors, and there will be some good openings as others leave (as I just did).

    Cons

    Aon ownership has no clue about the unique operation of an engineering company. It's all about the money. No synergistic benefits with the business at all.

    Advice to Management

    Aon, listen to the engineering management at Schirmer. (Too late now after so many people have left a once proud and leading company).
    Carl Baldassarra is no longer leading the company. He left too!
