    Overworked and Underpaid

    Accounting Associate (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsLarge company with opportunity for internal movement.

    ConsThe management is poor. Many of the managers don't know how to manage people and it goes unchecked.

    The salaries aren't competitive and hard work isn't rewarded monetarily.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTeach your managers how to manage. Also, poor training or completely lacking training in several departments.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    I think that this company must very by location because I can tell you that the corporate office in SF is terrible.

    Executive Assistant (Former Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsSome employees are great but they are few and far between.

    ConsAs a former EA I can tell you that the administrative team is treated like crap. Company is known for playing horrible wages and having bad broker splits.
    Super negative environment that works you death w no perks.
    In the time I was in this office literally 112 people left (60 person office).
    Brokers very in personalities but they are all out for themselves at the day.

    Regional CEO is elitist and clueless.
    Would rather beg on the street than work there again, seriously.
    Especially now that I'm with a great company I can see how poorly the company treats people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize all members of staff, stop
    ignoring turn over issues, stop the drama.

    Was excited to join the team and read great things until the dust settled and seen the company for what its really worth

    Facility Engineer (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsDescent salary,PTO, merit raise can be ok at times. Possible advancement

    ConsBeing promoted from within seems rare, self evaluations process is a big joke, along with "training". I was quite disappointed in the way such a large company as such can be so disorganized on levels from HR to payroll.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove job posting notices within the company for possible advancement.
    Create better training for employees, and assist with making career improvements.
    Improve the lines of communications for employees to local upper management.
    Need to start living up the title of ‘World’s Most Ethical Companies’.
    I'm a firm believer in the saying "a companies greatest assets are their employees", its time to start listening and make positive changes.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    typical slash and burn outsource company

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsJLL has enormous international presence and some very talented persons working for them. Size allows for some good pricing and ready made systems to utilize.

    ConsTook on a new contract before gaining much understanding of operating environment, decided to "fix the plane while it is in the air". Lack of caring about affected employees, many of who had spent years in their respective hospitals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCare more about your employees rather than simply how can we make the bottom line as profitable as possible.

    Okay at best

    (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, great team members, client committed to the contract's success.

    ConsPoor management. Our manager was removed as a scape goat and we never rebounded. Too many promises not enough follow through. The sales team will do anything to get the business. On boarding was lacking and the "transition" was never realized. POOR PAY. Not even close to competitive for expected work load and expected commitment with the high level of expectation that was committed to by the sales team.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on supporting your workers instead of driving them down and criticizing their effort. Make sure all the "resources" that are supposed to be available actually are. Peer accounts are great but not when you have no way of utilizing them. Train more on internal systems.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The good, the bad, and the incompetent

    Regional Facilities Manager (Former Employee)
    Richmond, VA

    ProsHad a good health plan

    ConsHad a unreasonable approach to simple problems. Had reached my career limit, with no possible promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake on a inclusive approach, that does not inhibit teamwork, and makes people feel like their opinions do not count.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Former General Manager

    General Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsStable job (because nobody else wants the headaches). Moderate daily flexibility. Good benefits. great time-off/vacation program.

    ConsEmployees treated as a dumb slaves. Stress levels are enormous. Regional Managers don't ask for your opinions they just want it done their way!. Culture is company first, family second.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI never had an exit interview from JLL's HR department. JLL needs to hear from their former employees if they truly want to improve the working lives of their current employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ProsJLL in growth mode. Adding to client portfolio, many locations, competitive pay and benefits, youth and entry level salary oriented, good career stepping stone. Strong online management and metrics.
