    Former Employee - Project Manager in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    -Great work environment in which a strong work ethic was highly valued
    -Co-workers were knowledgeable, fun and supportive
    -Excellent benefits and good pay

    Cons

    -Competition within JLL was sharp and although work/life balance was preached, it seemed unlikely that anyone would advance significantly without sacrificing their work/life balance.
    -The company culture was too heavily slanted toward a "see and be seen" lifestyle for my taste. Advancement was not only a matter of work performance, it was also a matter of whether or not you attended all the company parties, attended the right happy hours, joined the right clubs, participated in all the charity events, etc. Simply put, extroverts will thrive at JLL, but introverts may become dissatisfied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our department was profitable and managed effectively. I had no complaints regarding upper management.

    Former Employee - Senior Manager, Communications in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    There were a lot of opportunities to move within the Marketing, Communications and Research function if you're identified as a top performer and you sit in Corporate. Senior leaders were easy to access and career development/performance management was a priority. The environment is highly competitive, which works well for some and is very difficult for others.

    Cons

    Without a strong manager advocating on your behalf, opportunities to advance would be minimal. Face time still matters, especially when it comes to stretch assignments or being identified as a top performer. The company is constantly adjusting/overhauling organizational and leadership structures which requires employees to be in a constant state of change. This is especially difficult for employees who need consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pour more time and effort into building personal relationships with team members. You'll get more engaged and committed employees who will be willing to give discretionary efforts on your behalf.
