I have been working at Aon full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Sacrificing personal liberties and a small amount of your humanity in order to be successful at this organization.

Cons

No work life balance, unless your life is about work. And poor management in general. The performance management calibration process isn't based on results, but rather popularity. The execs protect themselves to the detriment of their employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Grow up, and stop throwing all of your employees under the bus. You know, if you'd actually create an enjoyable place to work, you could promote from within and save on payroll since the job wouldn't be all about the money. You might actually because to balance the books by saving on turnover expenses.

    I have been working at Aon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great work environment
    - Senior management has extensive knowledge of the industry and is generally willing to help you grow
    - Competitive pay and benefits
    - Flexible work hours and autonomy
    - Team based client management encourages lower level to senior level cooperation. This creates a good sense of valued input

    Cons

    - As is with all large firms (esp. in brokerage) senior level employees tend to stay beyond retirement age, hindering the ability to move up vertically within the firm
    - Disproportionate bonus pool
    - Would like more vacation/sick/personal days

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide your younger generation employees with industry knowledge and talent development. Consider providing more financial support for those looking to continue their education.

    I have been working at Aon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    My department is more of a relax environment in comparaision to some. I can at least appreciate that

    Cons

    The medical benefits are expensive and deductibles are high. It gets worst every year being employed at AON. Please get your salary up front because it is difficult to move positions within the company a raise promotion is only at 4% unless you are way out that postition salary ranage. The most you can get for an annual raise doing an outstanding job without a promotion is 2%. There is not much encouragement here just waiting for the economy to improve to find a new opportunity
