    Overall, generally not a positive experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

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

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Aon- are your employees your biggest asset?

    Account Broker (Former Employee) Sydney

    ProsI 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.

    ConsExpected 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 Senior ManagementIf 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!!
