Calc Engine Systems Analyst (Current Employee), Houston, TX – October 17, 2013
Pros: work from home
Great teams. Very good defined benefits platform; every system is integrated. Work comes in waves and management is pretty flexible when it comes to the work schedule. Very result driven and less concerned with how/when you do the work as long as deadlines are not pushed. The only real downside is the pay. Pay raises have been small regardless of performance.
Aon was my first experience in the broker industry and I loved it. I started in Aon Aviation and acquired my state license along with annual CE's and worked toward my AIS and CISR. They support all of that whole-heartedly. 9/11 had a huge impact so eventually they started closing down small departments in the Houston office and other offices. Aviation – more... was one of those. I was disappointed to leave there but understood their need to cut back. This is where I cut my teeth on the broker side of the insurance industry and it was exciting! My co-workers were supportive and wonderful. Management was supportive also. Until I came here I was only familiar with the underwriting side of insurance - aviation specifically. Aon was wonderful to me. Had it not been for 9/11....... – less
