    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and opportunities, the company rates high here

    Cons

    I worked in Corporate Solutions, I was on an island. No support, no growth, no career development. I sat on client sites and was lucky if anyone at JLL remembered I worked there. When my contract was up, no support, no help, just "good luck"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to integrate employees who are isolated on client sites. Engage with them, help them redeploy when the contracts are over. There is a lot of talk about this, but that certainly wasn't my reality.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for when I first started but has taken a turn since then. Pay, vacation time and insurance are the good benefits this company has to offer.

    Cons

    People are not friendly at all. Training program is very poor. The only people who get promotions are people who work more then 12 houers per day and over the weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can work from home which is very nice.

    Pros

    Good on-line training resources. Good depth of staff experience. Good IT support and laptops. Decent health and dental benefits, as well.

    Cons

    Chokingly corporate, zero management encouragement for staff mentoring and advancement, unrealistic expectation that work dominates 24 hours of every day, weekends included.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read "It's Your Ship". JLL's management style 180 degrees off from the guidance in that book.

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Very appreciative of their employees! Lots of opportunities for advancement as well as networking opportunities!

    Cons

    Annmarie England and autumn cleary. If you work in the pittsburgh office, those 2 are the epitome of favoritism. Annmarie wrote me up for being impatient because when i was on the phone i would im an employee with the question (so i would not have to put the person on hold) if they would not respond i would simply ask someone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to stop making power go to your head. Us subordinates may not be as strong brave or smart as you but we still do have a side to the story.

    Pros

    JLL has the best brokers in the business. CBRE is a great company, not to disparage them, but the legacy Staubach guys at JLL have the best relationships and are without a doubt the gold standard in the business. JLL is like Target, CBRE is like Walmart.

    Cons

    There is too much red tape. Operating as a broker within the boundaries at JLL requires an enormous amount of reporting to management that no one ever looks at. It doesn't have any value and it take away from time you could be spending with clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some, either you are a manager or a broker, when you're playing manager if it's not impacting your own book of business, you make a lot of promises you never fulfill.

    Project Managers are spread way too thin, on too many projects, ultimately hurting the clients in not getting the time/services they are paying for.

    Pros

    Perks are great, staff is friendly, great working environment, free coffee. Staff outings on a quarterly basis. Had Great instructors.

    Cons

    Cubical setting, too many people to get to know people. I like smaller companies where you get to know everyone you work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great place to work. Get to know your employees capabilities so they don't get too bored.
