Aon has an initiative in process to layoff as many mid-level managers as possible. You know, the mid-level managers that are work horses. The ones that know their job and know it well. They know how to get things done. If it weren't for these people and the people they manage the company would die a slow and painful death. Instead of keeping quality people and actually focusing on engagement they have chosen to offshore as many jobs as possible to India, layoff the mid-level managers that are high performers because they "make too much money" and give the shaft to entry level employees that are killing themselves for a lousy 1% raise every year. Pardon my French, but F#CK Aon and companies like them.
Outsourcing IT in 2004 was a dumb move - and then CSC let 140 talented staffers go to hire a bunch of kids. So now years later the outsourced emps are to be replaced with probably cheaper outsourced emps --- with low cost benefit packages (if at all). McKinsey management at it's best.
Yea, it’s learnt that major IT workforce layoff planned in India too pretty soon. The remaining may be outsourced to another IT vendor!
Massive layoffs in October 2017 throughout the US and globally. It is unfortunate, but Aon has been hurting the last two years. The Alight divestiture created disruption, and most account management went to Alight, leaving a void at Aon Consulting. Larger accounts went to the remaining 25 account managers. The rest became practice-led accounts based on whoever worked with the client last.
