    I worked at Aon full-time (more than a 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

    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!!

    Pros

    consistent feedback and recognition for a job well done, consistent employee outreach, wanting employee feedback. They always are innovating the tools we need to easily access any information we need to better ourselves or be better acquainted with the company and it's values/mission

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons at this point. Working virtually has it's pros and cons, but although we work virtually, we still remain extremely connected!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work
