    Dysfunctional

    Property Administrator (Former Employee) McLean, VA (US)

    ProsI wished I could say something here. They have great benefits.

    ConsPersonal growth is nearly impossible as they like to backdoor nearly all their staff. Make sure you set reasonable work load expectations and timeframes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAgain, nothing to say than it took everything I had not to pursue legal action against this company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Better than other large commercial real estate companies, but not by a lot!

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Oakland, CA (US)

    ProsJLL is a large company and so has many resources to support your work function. It is generally better run than CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield and most of the other large competition. It also has a large international presence.

    ConsBenefits are barely competitive and have been reduced in recent years. Unless you work in the Chicago HQ, there's little opportunity to meet leadership or even fellow employees in other job functions. Internal transfers are very challenging - you have to network as if you were looking for an external job. Like most big companies, HR is there to support management, not the employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees constantly hear about how well the company is doing but none of that success filters down to the regular employees. Our benefits are generally unchanged or reduced each year and annual raises barely keep up with inflation (2-3%). Instead of putting share holders first, dare to make employees the company's top priority (like the most succesful Silicon Valley companies).

    Overworked and Underpaid

    Accounting Associate (Former Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsLarge company with opportunity for internal movement.

    ConsThe management is poor. Many of the managers don't know how to manage people and it goes unchecked.

    The salaries aren't competitive and hard work isn't rewarded monetarily.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTeach your managers how to manage. Also, poor training or completely lacking training in several departments.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not bad.

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

    ProsCompany tends to be cognizant of employees' needs for work/life balance. Lots of opportunities to change career paths with management support for professional development.

    ConsSalaries are on the low end, but acceptable.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider researching what other firms are paying their employees who perform similar job functions.

    Great place to work. Good ethics, Good climate, Good strategy

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Canberra (Australia)

    ProsWork-life balance was great. Was able to adjust my working hours to suit my family commitments and work from home when required.

    ConsSometime unclear where the company is going. JLL should probably improve communication to the bottom part of the employees.
