    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good pay, good benefits, nice vacation package

    Cons

    Managers do not welcome input from employees or do not listen to input from employees of the buildings that they take over. Employees that come with the building are put down, belittled, and made scapegoats when the management make mistakes. When they redo systems they do not bring the right employees into the meetings with contractors (meaning those employees who actually use the systems and know what the systems do and how the systems have to work). Management does not like to admit when they do wrong, they like to blame those under them for their mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Actually listen to employees when you take over a building. Be prepared to work outside the box and realize that all buildings are not run the same way. One way of running a building may not work at another building. Be more flexible and actually listen, ask questions and do research before redoing a system.

    Pros

    Job security, flexible with work schedule, ability to work from home when needed.

    Cons

    No sense of corporate unity for those that are outside of headquarters. Manager was very hands off. Overworked. Slightly Under paid .Health Benefits are a joke. Management set these lofty goals and yet provide little or no guidance to staff to complete them or even hold us accountable. So why bother? No transparency between client, management and the staff that actually do the work. Not empowered. No clear processes. Processes are tedious and convoluted. I spend more time doing stupid reports than actual work. Management won all of these awards and I still can't figure out how or why.

    Advice to Management

    Set clearer goals and mission and then back it up with support. Quit making lofty promises and bold statements and not following through.

    Able to work from home as needed.

    The work load is unbearable! The support is lacking in training.

    Spend more time one-on-one with your staff to actually know what their work load is like.

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, highly regarded firm within the real estate world, nice offices, decent benefits

    Cons

    Pay is on the low-end, influx of former consultants (Accenture) at the senior/C-suite level has changed the dynamic - what once was a highly ethical and respectful workplace is now fueled by leaders who are verbally abusive, uninformed, and not supportive of furthering their employees' careers within the firm.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is happening a few levels below you. Your new hires are bringing in a negative working environment and JLL is losing what made it magical. Employee satisfaction is at a low, leaders need to step up and show that they are moving the company forward while maintaining our culture.

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

    Pros

    Having a job and benefits.

    Cons

    Mostly salaried employees to work long hours, no life balances. Reducing hourly staff and placing work load on salaried employees as a cost save initiative. Very volatile atmosphere. You would think you were working for dictators.

    Advice to Management

    You won't listen. The all mighty dollar is the bottom line. Recruit fresh people every couple of of years to replace the burnt out employees. Chew them up and spit them out mentality.
