Employee friendly company

Developer Analyst (Former Employee)
Greater Noida

I worked at Hewitt Associates full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThis is great company I worked with. I spend 7 + years here. Very employee friendly and for woman employees its like a boon. But after merger to AON culture has been changed relatively. Work from home facility can be availed easily. Good transport.

ConsLeadership need to identify teams/groups where people can change job internally in choice of skills. Some places there are employees who are getting stale in same work/technology. They need to flourish people in new skills.

Advice to Senior Managementsame as above

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

No growth opportunity.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hewitt Associates full-time for less than a year

ProsCan't think of many pros except the food facilities available inside and outside the company and the cab facility. They really take care that their female employees are dropped safely at home, even call every female employee to confirm it every single day.

ConsVery low compensation. No growth opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementNone!
