    It was a very depressing work environment, the leadership was only concerned about themselves.

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle

    Pros

    There was a multitude of equipment and facilities to learn about and take care of.... I enjoyed my job as "Mobile Facilities Engineer".

    Cons

    As I reflect, there was never any positive discussions about how team was doing an "effective" job.... the leadership always seemed to "pull everybody down".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire effective leaders with quantifiable leadership skills and pay your talented service people competitive wages commensurate with the work they perform and duties they take responsibility for. Managers are NOT the only ones responsible for getting work done... they merely push buttons on a keyboard and ACT like they are actually being effective at their jobs... the real hero's are the people who get dirty every day!

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

    Pros

    The company offers decent benefits. However, don't plan to use the PTO you're given. Workloads are impossible and it's expected your work nights, weekends and during time off.

    Cons

    I think the recent Best Places to Work in Chicago feature was telling. I thought it was interesting employees were quoted about how stressful the environment is with difficult clients. The company sets unrealistic targets, workloads and puts departments at odds with one another. While there are plenty of executives and directors, the workload falls with the minions with no respect to individuals. They won't let you take PTO in a given year until you accrue it, but then make it impossible to use it with the volume of work given. Then, they make it incredibly difficult to carry over the time. You can forget work-life balance it you work here. And the ethics of this Company are even worse. People bring their buddies on as consultants. People are managed by fear and there's a constant churn of staff. So, don't believe the smoke, mirrors and fancy employment marketing campaigns. It's all a pipe dream. Burned out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Control, alt, delete. Look at your infrastructure and leadership team and start over. A systematic outside analysis of the spans of control, decision-making processes, and a deep dive into the unethical management practices is what is needed.
