    I worked at Aon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Great benefits
    -Fun workplace culture
    -Plenty of opportunity to move up
    -Great Lloyds insurance programs available that tier 2 brokerages don't have access to
    -Nice downtown office

    Cons

    -Managers are established account executives who still have books of business to services and new account quotas which leads to poor management practices
    -Awful commission structure: Execs don't make commission on renewals but if they lose accounts it deducts from their new business commissions.
    -Poor training practices
    -Depending on what department you are in, some are your typical old boys club where women get overlooked for promotion and mentorship.
