    Pros

    JLL is a solid, balanced and stable company, which leaves plenty of room for growth.They also provide multiple opportunities to learn and develop within the company as well.

    Cons

    Since it's so large, it may be easy to simply refill a role should the needs not be met, but hardly considered a negative or unreasonable.

    Former Employee - Mobile Engineer in Tampa, FL (US)

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company vehicle loaded with good field tools and equipment, Good managers that seem to actually care about you, Good starting salaries and benefits.

    Cons

    No place to move up into a better position - very limited advancement opportunities, all meetings done through computer and not enough " in person" time with immediate manager, small raises for technicians but good raises for upper management, who sometimes do not know how to work with the field techs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your time out in the field to meet with Mobile techs; Allow greater feedback from field techs about technical aspects of clients needs and then actually apply the information in the corporate level as well. Give "earned raises" not "just everyone gets something across the board" raises.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Washington, DC (US)

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a steady pay check in a weak economy. There were opportunities to upgrade computer and management skills on a frequent basis. I did get to work with some very good people. I did learned a lot from a few of them. Most of best left before I did.

    Cons

    There is no life/work balance. Some managers in our group were down right over bearing. Getting any of your PTO was a challenge. "Use it or Lose it" policy was a rip off at the end of each year. As a single parent, it was difficult to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your workers' home lives more.

    Pros

    PTO is decent, that's about it.

    Cons

    Culture of intimidation-HR is a nightmare, difficult to advance, low pay with high performance expectations. Everybody is worried they're next on the chopping block to be fired. Write-ups occur after any and all call offs/early dismissals even if you provide a doctor's note and/or have accrued PTO. Office culture is more like high school, the gossip mill is relentless. Extremely high turnover due to people quitting and/or getting fired. Benefits are a joke unless you make enough to afford the better packages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying your full time employees as much or more than the temps they're forced to train every 6-8 weeks, advance people who have been there for years in the same position when they deserve it, knock it off with the double standards (scolding underlings for using office communications while spending the entire day IMing a significant other). On that note, it's bad form to involve yourself on a personal (romantic) level with other people in the office.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, company has very aggressive growth plans. Firm is very serious about ethics and responds exceedingly well to ethical issues.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be miserable. Health benefits are not the best. Company often penny wise but pound foolish. Technology platforms very dated and fragmented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With such aggressive growth plans, there has never been a more important time in JLLs history to focus on People.

    Pros

    This is a large recognized and respected brand. In general there are opportunities to move to different positions over time and to learn about many areas of corporate real estate.

    Cons

    Benefits are not quite at pace with competitors. Pay for performance model keeps salaries on the low side with a promise of bonus compensation for strong performance - a promise that is delivered against with limited success. Very hard working culture with strong emphasis on sales. Delivery of client solutions often falls short of what the sales team sold - and after the sales team seals the deal with a client, you'll never see them again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate culture is not as good as it was 6 - 8 years ago. Lower level employees experience a culture of fear where it is commonly believed that anyone can be fired for making a mistake. If a client asks you to be replaced on an account, you will be fired. My advice is to try to return to a position that is les threatening, and that provides inspirational leadership that lifts employees up and motivates them to do their best work.
