    Pros

    The company has good benefits and offers good training. There is the opportunity to move from account to account and have exposure to numerous businesses.

    Cons

    The firm is highly political. There is absolutely no loyalty to employees. Those that I encountered knew nothing about managing people, building relationships, building better moral or a sense of excitement.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot manage people strictly through a website. You need to visit accounts and assure that those in the field offices are included and feel as if they are part of an overall team and larger entity.

    Pros

    Working independently on a daily basis with no management assistance and support.

    Cons

    Supporting numerous sites all about production numbers not quality! Lack of management support. Video calls!

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the work load of managers to allow them to manage others as they should and not just manage their other sites.

    Pros

    Flexible time, able to work from home from time to time

    Cons

    The only thing that matters to the management is profit, at all cost. People are driven to the ground and word "thank you" is used very rarely. Work camp atmosphere.

    Advice to Management

    People do matter, their hard work stands directly behind your success. You don't have to show recognition, but little appreciation is highly recommended.

    Pros

    The benefits were awesome. I negotiated my salary and vacation days. I did receive recognition for my achievements in my region and had some good bonuses. I did advance quickly and was given decent raises.

    Cons

    The corporate structure is very rigid. Hard to meet performance goals trickle down to everyone even if they don't make sense to your business unit. Too many conference calls and meetings. I encountered many unstable and unethical managers who had no issue taking credit for your works or even stealing. I didn't feel a culture of honesty. It was a paper you signed but I didn't see anyone really living up to the ethics. There was a strong requirement for client entertainment even if it meant staying out until 3am. If you don't socialize or drink you don't advance. It felt like a good old boys club to me. The day I quit was one of the best days of my life. My only regret is not filing a lawsuit and I would wager I'm not alone in that freeling.

    Advice to Management

    Less conference calls. Less pressure to drink and party after work in order to advance. Not everyone wants to hang out in bars all night.

    Pros

    Some nice coworkers, decent benefits

    Cons

    I worked in the brokerage department at JLL Pittsburgh. Other departments on our floor seemed to be happy, but the brokerage department was a mess! I replaced someone who left because of abusive behavior from a boss. I received the same behavior from this person and their team. I supported two departments and my workload was VERY heavy. When i tried to explain I had a lot on my plate and would get things done as soon as possible, i was meant with blank stares and bullying behavior to prioritize their work ahead of everyone else's.

    There is not an HR department in the Pittsburgh office, so I really didn't have anyone to go to. I spoke to my manager (also not in the Pittsburgh office) and the head of the department but nothing was done.

    I recently resigned without having another job lined up because I couldn't take the abuse and harassment much longer. From what I've read, JLL is an awesome company to work for, but this was not the case in the Pittsburgh office, or at least the brokerage department.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to make difficult decisions by firing proven problems instead of letting the support staff be abused. It will be a revolving door in the department until that decision is made. The head of the region avoids conflict and would rather let harassment continue than have a difficult discussion with his friend. Corporate needs to look into ethics violations in the Pittsburgh office.

    Pros

    In all honesty not much just the work from home

    Cons

    They aren't honest or upfront about anything. No work life balance. Can't move anywhere. Constant change. They love catch phrases and throw them around all the time but they don't really get what they mean.

    Advice to Management

    Treat support staff with respect. Get rid of lackluster management increase salaries.
