    Better than other large commercial real estate companies, but not by a lot!

    Project Manager (Current Employee) Oakland, CA

    ProsJLL is a large company and so has many resources to support your work function. It is generally better run than CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield and most of the other large competition. It also has a large international presence.

    ConsBenefits are barely competitive and have been reduced in recent years. Unless you work in the Chicago HQ, there's little opportunity to meet leadership or even fellow employees in other job functions. Internal transfers are very challenging - you have to network as if you were looking for an external job. Like most big companies, HR is there to support management, not the employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees constantly hear about how well the company is doing but none of that success filters down to the regular employees. Our benefits are generally unchanged or reduced each year and annual raises barely keep up with inflation (2-3%). Instead of putting share holders first, dare to make employees the company's top priority (like the most succesful Silicon Valley companies).

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

    Great work experience

    Real Estate Broker (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat company with multiple lines of work. The people are the globe are great to work with. Great benefits package.

    ConsIf not on a good team it is very difficult to be successful. Must have the support of a good team/senior partners.

    Realistic

    (Current Employee) Philadelphia, PA

    ProsGlobal opportunities for the travel type. Company offers a prestigious, respected name. Strong employee benefits that evolve to meet specific employee needs.

    ConsIf your not in the right click, you won't get recognized for opportunities. Hard work isn't rewarded proportionally. Support staff isn't respected

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay closer attention to who gets the work done rather than who takes credit for handing it over.

    Good firm not enough experienced field knowledge

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsDecent benefits, respected reputation, world wide opprtunities, high profile projects

    ConsNo raises in either salery, bonus & in a lot of ways the right hand doesn't know what the right thumb is doing. Overloaded with bright, with zero field experience hi-tech youngsters

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpread around the marbles & reward loyal/hardworking/reliable/driven folks even every two years at least with a bump in salery, I've seen so many folks leaving over that one reason alone. People need to be acknowledged especially whilst the profits are growing year after year! At least to try & keep up with inflation everywhere! For example half of the 18 folks of our team on a historic project 3 years ago, have left the company for that exact same reason AND, in every instance but one, they approached their supervisors with an opportunity for JLL to match the offer to keep them around, not once did they even have a conversation about it, all folks referenced ended up leaving anyway

    Great place to work if you come prepared

    Strategic Sourcing Manager (Former Employee) Mountain View, CA

    ProsBenefits of a large organization. Many clients in various industries means there is always opportunity to change and grow, assuming you can navigate the politics.

    ConsNot really a place where you can 'fake it till you make it'. Lack of industry knowledge or coming in short handed in terms of skills for a particular job role is a severe hindrance. Lack of both and you won't survive the myriad environmental factors that always show up.Culture is determined by the client as much if not more than JLL. Not adviseable for employees with young families if you want to spend much time with them for a few years (and it helps if your partner is a stay-at-home partner.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementProcuring a new client with less than 70% incumbents and limited visibility to client's project costs in the managed area? Expect turnover in the client leadership team within the first year unless you install a seasoned team that already knows JLL including systems and resources. Learning JLL, the client, and negotiating the new environment is extremely challenging.

    A successful, well organized corporation

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe atmosphere is professional and everyone is working hard to accomplish their goals. Day to day work experience varies according to department and supervisor.

    ConsThe training could be more comprehensive and there is little follow up after hire. Although ease of moving to other departments is offered at hire, it is hard to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to the people in the field for suggestions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
