    Pros

    Interesting people and open culture, especially good for entry levels who would like to take this a a starting point in real estate.

    Cons

    Fast promotions in developing countries will result in less professional and less capable higher level managements.

    Pros

    There are many different environments to work in at this company. If you want to pursue entrepreneur type roles, highly structured corporate positions, work in the field or in an office, they are all available through JLL. The experience of working for JLL is highly dependent on the group you work with. Overall, the benefits seem to be good. They push the active lifestyle. There are opportunities for fun group activities. The company seems to be doing well delivering value for clients and shareholders. Good environment that supports and awards innovation. Depending on the roll, you may have the option to work from home.

    Cons

    Can sometimes feel like High School with various "clicks." While the company continues to grow and seems successful, the message from leadership is not really clear. This could be part of the org structure and there may be stronger vision and leadership in the various verticals. There are over 1600 vice presidents, two dozen CEOs, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the organization structure and titles. Titles mean very little there other than a status symbol.

    Pros

    Management respects your decisions and allows opportunities to grow. Benefits are above average but not best. Generous PTO. Or at least than my previous employers.

    Cons

    Low raises. You have to negotiate all your pay at hire and then switch roles to get any kind of increase. Bonus only for salary workers.

    Pros

    We develop a bond among our team, and feels like a family, and HR will go up and beyond to assure that you are comfortable as one of there own.

    Cons

    Was not put in actual job position that was offered,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To make sure that communication is key, and make employees be part of the team where they were originally supposed to be

    Pros

    JLL has the best brokers in the business. CBRE is a great company, not to disparage them, but the legacy Staubach guys at JLL have the best relationships and are without a doubt the gold standard in the business. JLL is like Target, CBRE is like Walmart.

    Cons

    There is too much red tape. Operating as a broker within the boundaries at JLL requires an enormous amount of reporting to management that no one ever looks at. It doesn't have any value and it take away from time you could be spending with clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some, either you are a manager or a broker, when you're playing manager if it's not impacting your own book of business, you make a lot of promises you never fulfill.

    Pros

    Nothing good about them , what so ever

    Cons

    Lie to clients, no knowledge of healthcare, yet trying to snatch the market in Operations/Engineering, lie to managers they hired from the hospital they take over. Unfair to employees who speak the truth about harassment from superiors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a Life and get out of Healthcare, go back to Chicago!

    Pros

    JLL attracts big name clients

    Cons

    Project Managers are spread way too thin, on too many projects, ultimately hurting the clients in not getting the time/services they are paying for.

    Pros

    Start time is later than most. Everyone gets a cubicle, no offices.

    Cons

    Bullies are encouraged and supported. Severe harassment is ignored when reported to corporate HR. Sexist culture. No minorities hired. Blatant lying to clients. Childish behaviorat all times. Not well respected in the industry. The worst place to work in real estate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire bullies, not the victims.
