    I worked at Aon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A bit of flexibility to work from home.

    Cons

    Senior management ignore bullying in the office from middle managers. Staff are over worked and treated badly. Glad I am out of there. In the two years I worked for Aon never have I seen such behaviour. They sell it to you in the interview until you get in . Beware .

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to look at what is happening in all your departments with bullying management. You could have a great company but your management is letting you down big-time. The CEO and directors should start looking seriously into what is happening instead of sitting on your high chairs and hoping it would go away.
