Former Employee - Project Manager in Chicago, IL (US)

I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Great work environment in which a strong work ethic was highly valued
-Co-workers were knowledgeable, fun and supportive
-Excellent benefits and good pay

Cons

-Competition within JLL was sharp and although work/life balance was preached, it seemed unlikely that anyone would advance significantly without sacrificing their work/life balance.
-The company culture was too heavily slanted toward a "see and be seen" lifestyle for my taste. Advancement was not only a matter of work performance, it was also a matter of whether or not you attended all the company parties, attended the right happy hours, joined the right clubs, participated in all the charity events, etc. Simply put, extroverts will thrive at JLL, but introverts may become dissatisfied.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Our department was profitable and managed effectively. I had no complaints regarding upper management.

    Great opportunities if you have a good manager

    Former Employee - Senior Manager, Communications in Chicago, IL (US)
    Former Employee - Senior Manager, Communications in Chicago, IL (US)

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There were a lot of opportunities to move within the Marketing, Communications and Research function if you're identified as a top performer and you sit in Corporate. Senior leaders were easy to access and career development/performance management was a priority. The environment is highly competitive, which works well for some and is very difficult for others.

    Cons

    Without a strong manager advocating on your behalf, opportunities to advance would be minimal. Face time still matters, especially when it comes to stretch assignments or being identified as a top performer. The company is constantly adjusting/overhauling organizational and leadership structures which requires employees to be in a constant state of change. This is especially difficult for employees who need consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pour more time and effort into building personal relationships with team members. You'll get more engaged and committed employees who will be willing to give discretionary efforts on your behalf.

    Pros

    the people - the most part they a professional, friendly, and good at what they do
    lots of locations both in the US and internationally
    strong focus on ethics and doing the right thing

    Cons

    questionable leadership within the HR function
    some people take themselves, the company, and real estate industry too seriously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lighten up a bit. It's okay to strive to be the leader in your field but remember nobody is saving lives with a real estate transaction
