    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.

    The company offers plenty of opportunities to learn through various programs, seminars and online classes. Lots of team activities and fairy positive work culture. Endless amount of company resources for education and furthering knowledge on your own.

    Very top heavy run company. Mid level managers not always valued for fear of upper management having to compete internally. Company is so large that good quality employees often get overlooked for promotions.

    Pros

    Perks are great, staff is friendly, great working environment, free coffee. Staff outings on a quarterly basis. Had Great instructors.

    Cons

    Cubical setting, too many people to get to know people. I like smaller companies where you get to know everyone you work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great place to work. Get to know your employees capabilities so they don't get too bored.

    Pros

    JLL offers a given client global breadth and depth with sophisticated tools and solid talent, and so an easy "sale" to the customer. Their size alone propels them to the short list of any major company in need of third party services. Carrying the JLL card imputes a certain credibility to the employee (warranted or not).

    Cons

    The pros notwithstanding, once a given contract is won, the delivery of service and dedication of appropriate resources is spotty to poor at best (as a potential client ask for references, specific to your scope, and you will find them much harder to come by than you might think). Woe to those employees left behind to fulfill a contract/assignment.

    One reads in these reviews that advancement is limited. This is particularly true from mid-management on up and consequently leads to level of paranoia which is difficult to convey. Be prepared to be second guessed from day-one, with many looking over your shoulder. As one outsider put it, "there are many sharp knives there." The successful employee is adept at watching his/her back as much as at work execution.

    The level of corporate arrogance is as palpable to the employee as it is to JLL's peer group. Anything perceived as slightly negative is quickly swept aside, and the deliverer thereof labeled a naysayer (who's days are limited).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shift focus and rewards from new business development to the accumulation of 'positive' to 'outstanding' client references (and the former will come). Look to promote from within (not just lip service), and establish 360 review process (particularly with upper management)to combat politics. Finally, strip HR of it's ridiculous influence on recruiting and hiring and shift accountability back to the hiring managers.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Lombard, IL (US)

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work as a Senior Consultant. I worked under a group called Capital Markets. The place has good scope under certain leaders. Lots of new technologies used. Lot of Mobile Development. Good place to learn. The leaders were generally receptive to new ideas.

    Cons

    Too much work pressure because of lack of structure and process in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time and budget to bring a process in place which they have already begun. Need to probably pay more because of too much pressure.
