    Pros

    Our client is great to work with and treats us as they would their own employees, not as a client.

    Cons

    While the work is always challenging and never ending the compensation does not always match the amount of work given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your employees, know their strengths, their jobs and their goals.

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, work life balance part of the company culture. Constantly growing and becoming stronger.

    Cons

    Hard to move up. Moving up the ladder not really encouraged, seems like they would rather hire from outside than try to groom people to move up from within. Total disconnect between those in upper management and those who are in the engineering or facilities maintenance departments. It stinks having someone tell you how to do a job that has no experience doing your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Blue collar doesn't equal stupid. Listen to the guys at the bottom sometimes. You might be surprised at what you would learn! Work on promoting the best and brightest from within. Stop looking outside the company for talent.....reward the loyal employees by giving them the tools to advance their careers.

    Pros

    All the tools you need to pitch and win business. Research and marketing provide the information you need ready to deliver or present to the client. Emphasis on ethics and integrity makes JLL a great place to work and a trusted advisor to our clients. Strong leadership contributes to a positive culture.

    Cons

    JLL has experienced rapid growth and the organizational support effectiveness appears to have struggled to keep up. While senior management is working hard to address this situation it can be more difficult than it should be to get their attention on ideas to streamline operations or change the way things are done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to incorporate the agility of a smaller boutique firm with the JLL platform and we will be unbeatable.

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work life balance
    Ethical
    A lot of opportunities
    Leadership you can believe in and follow
    Fair pay and benefits
    Tuition Reimbursement
    Competent and talented staff
    Innovative/Technology Driven

    Cons

    I've been with company a little more than a year and don't really have anything negative to say. I'm sure others have something to complain about; but, if you've worked in start up, small business, Fortune 500 companies and then come here you'll likely find that it is an ideal environment that is customer and employee centric.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are great lots of PTO

    Cons

    I was excited to work for JLL but found it extremely difficult to work as an Accountant off Site. The people they hired remotely didn't have the right skills and wouldn't learn. I couldn't get people to work together and communicate. I felt like I was the only member on my team that cared. Management would have conference calls with the team but nothing improved and there wasn't any follow through. That was a common theme with my group so there was a lot of turn over in my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better system that works. Instead of blaming and finding fault help with finding and following through with solutions that make sense. Listen to your employees.
