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

    Pros

    Hours and benefits are good. Most of the client involvement is good they have more respect for you then the Management staff. as long as you do your job and don't complain you will be fine.

    Cons

    Pay is on the lower end of the pay scale. They expect more from there staff then they are willing to compensate for. Provide training on site with professional trainers not computer based training that is in place at this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of the workers. Show the workers that their more than a number. You need to raise wages to meet industry standards.

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

    Pros

    Most of the other financial analysts are smart and motivated. JLL has a big brand name to it and projects can be high visibility.

    Cons

    The Public Institutions CEOs are out-dated and out of touch with attracting and retaining talent. They're messages during the PI Town Hall meetings are feel-good but absolutely do not match what they practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PI is the worst business unit to be a young, ambitious person in. There is little training, no transparency in promotion/raises/bonuses, and I dont know a single analyst who genuinely likes working in the business unit.

    Pros

    Large company with opportunity for internal movement.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

    Recognize all members of staff, stop
    ignoring turn over issues, stop the drama.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Being 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 ManagementAdvice

    Improve 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.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Took 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 ManagementAdvice

    Care more about your employees rather than simply how can we make the bottom line as profitable as possible.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Poor 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 ManagementAdvice

    Focus 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.
