    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 worked at Aon as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I really enjoyed interning with Aon. I was given comprehensive projects that enhanced my learning of the insurance business and what brokers and underwriters look at in a company when determining policies. There were also a lot of young people in the office, which made me feel more comfortable in the office.

    Cons

    None that I can think of

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at Aon

    Pros

    Generally nice friendly people, location is desirable as it is right in downtown and close to shops and restaurants, some management are smart however some middle management are not and it really suprise me how they get promoted. 401K matches 6% which is pretty good.

    Cons

    Some middle management get promoted based on relationship with their superior and not necessarily based on skill set. Pay is mediocre.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should impose upward management feedback.

    Started out fine, but realized soon after that Management needed to be trained on how to be Managers.

    I worked at Aon

    Pros

    The relationships that I had with the clients and underwriters

    Cons

    Overworked, understaffed, some colleagues received promotions yearly while others were overlooked, too many Teacher's Pets. Their agency management was developed by Aon and only functioned as read only, Acord applications had to be done manually which was very time consuming to prepare. Too much clerical work involved was involved for a position where moreport of the focus should have been on the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give credit where credit is due and reduce the amount of favortism that is openly displayed. Get into the 21st century and toss that bootleg agency management system Bridge out the window. Agencies 90% smaller than Aon are using top of the line agency management systems that are functional, user friendly and saves valuable time
