    Pros

    Enjoyed working here. Plenty of support from senior management and lots of training . Very flexible work environment and exposure to lots of different types of work.

    Cons

    Lack of client facing time - generally kept back office. Work can be repetitive. Lack of clarity on billable hours reporting.

    I worked at Aon Hewitt full-time

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some of the biggest employers and pension schemes in the UK. Good study support for students.

    Cons

    Long hours and increasingly so. Since the Aon takeover in 2010, it was noticeable how the company's attitude towards its employees progressively worsened.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that individuals matter and not everything needs to be about hitting revenue or profit targets. Concentrate more on your people and less on your shareholders.


  8. "Still a Great Place to Work"

    Pros

    I remember the "old" days before the "merger" it was a great place to work then and it still is just different. As long as you hit the targets you will be OK. They even give out free fruit once a week

    Cons

    The communication from top to bottom is not as good as it could be. You end up having to rely upon your personal network to find out what is happening.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with employees, the truth is what we want to hear. The office space is to small we need more desks for employees and to say we have to work at home once a week is not good for team work

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    Great senior leadership
    Relaxed culture
    Results-based remuneration
    Countless career opportunities

    Cons

    Integrating teams / systems / processes has been a long time coming

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. This is a great place to work. The best company I have worked for by a long way.

    I learnt a range of skills

    Cons

    Send some time training new joiners. Treat staff with some respect.
