    I worked at Aon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    good training opportunities as the company really encourages professional development and supports charity/volunteer days

    Cons

    salary reviews would be promised but would not come to fruition. There was also inconsistencies with remuneration within the team and we were always expected to do more with less resources to try and further cut costs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    employees need recognition for their hard work from time to time so they need to invest more in employees as an asset

    Aon- are your employees your biggest asset?

    I worked at Aon

    Pros

    I was lucky to end up with a great team that was very supportive, although there were many teams I would have dreaded to work in.
    Aon does provide great training, including online training as well as paying for external courses. I am also impressed with their support of charity organisations.

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours and required to do work greater than my job description without receiving fair pay.
    I was also aware of new employees with less experience who were receiving higher salaries than me and others with more experience. Management also seemed unreasonable when attempting to negotiate a payrise, continuing to promise that it will be looked into in 3 mths or 6 mths, before being told the same thing when that period ended.
    There's only so long a company can propose that their employees are their greatest asset, until those employees will want to see something more than promises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If employees are important, they really need to be paid more! Keep up with the industry to ensure that you are paying in-line with the Market rates and it's important to ensure that new employees are not getting paid more than your existing, loyal employees.
    Also, if an employee comes to ask about a pay rise, don't make empty promises!!

    I have been working at Aon full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been with the company for just over 2 years. I love how the company provides good benefits and that we are a client first focused firm. I like how you are exposed to different career opportunities that will help you grow professionally and personally.

    Cons

    I do not have many cons about the company. The one con that I can think of is that it is a bit frustrating is to get things approved in order to move forward to get something done....in all fairness this is very common in very large global corporations.

    I worked at Aon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits here were great. I really enjoyed my team and the people I worked directly with.

    Cons

    The office culture is very fragmented. There is no sense of community, people are there to do a job, and if that job is not going to interact with your job, you'll probably never really get to know that person.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The more you invest in your employees and demonstrate how valuable they are, the more invested they will feel in the business.

    I worked at Aon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is plenty of room for advancement if you work hard. They provide competitive salary and benefits packages with a matching 401K.

    Cons

    The management is somewhat out of touch with employees and don't really care about them - they're all just a number. No work/life balance and you are consistently expected to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on your employees and a little less on the bottom line.

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

    Pros

    Working with smart, capable people who work hard for their clients; strong focus on developing talent; love the increased attention on engagement, and positive marketplace reputation.

    Cons

    Compensation is just OK, could be more progressive. Some complain of poor management, which I've experienced in the past, but I have a great manager now, and I see how Aon is trying to improve the consistency of performance management across the board. We could also do better in recognizing leaders, but I also see we are starting a new program for that as well!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the momentum on engagement, improve compensation and help make cross functional career mobility easier. That should help keep the competition from poaching our folks!

    Pros

    Employer with strong brand, massive resources and global reach, all of which help employees delight the clients.

    Cons

    The company is so big, it is difficult to see a route through the forest for personal development and career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prospects for career growth underlie performance and sales targets.....if they don't know where they are going, how can you expect your team to follow you?
