      Pros

      If you have the ability to do the job the past 18 months of working from home has been easy. The company has done a lot to facilitate working from home for years.

      Cons

      They have embraced the Racism of Diversity. They have Mentorship and Groups based on Race. The moment this was introduced I decided to quit.

      Cytelligence Post Acquistion - High Turnover. Poor Leadership. No Change.

      Sep 21, 2021 - Consultant in Toronto, ON

      Pros

      Can be your first cyber job

      Cons

      Extremely high employee turnover, this is a revolving door. Pay that is 30%-50% below market despite there being a cyber boom. Efforts are made at all costs to keep employees in the dark about rates that clients pay because of the below market pay and past employee attempts to renegotiate a fair salary after finding out how little you are paid. When things are slow which happens VERY often because there is no dedicated sales team, there is competition to be placed on billable work, and your billable utilization is still regularly discussed. Yes thats right you are accountable to billable utilization despite not being the one who can get more work coming in the door. Gaps in utilization that are no fault of your own are not accounted for when it comes to promotion and bonuses. The most impersonal management team you will ever be a part of and IF you ever have a 1 on 1 you will see how little effort is given to get to know a bit about you and what your goals are. Bottom line, if you have any cyber experience, do not work here, go elsewhere. If you are trying to break into cyber and have no other options or dont want to work at Herjavec then go here but get out as soon as you get another offer.

      Pros

      Great technical staff and company presents a great opportunity to learn all aspects of insurance.

      Cons

      Aon is a large company and you have access to great resources however, due to the size it can be difficult to navigate across all of the different areas.
