I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle

Pros

It's a large firm with multiple lines of business across the entire real estate field. It's not just a property management firm, or a brokerage, or a real estate consulting firm. It's everything wrapped up into one.

Cons

(see above) The firm is too damn big and corporate. My e-mail box is loaded with JLL spam and none of it is relevant to my position as a union operating engineer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize that the culture of the "ground pounders" in building ops (Engineers, Porters, Guards) is different from the ultra-corporate culture of the rest of the firm and that failure to recognize this fact is a huge barrier to getting people on the bottom of the food chain to really buy into the firm and take ownership.

    Pros

    Name recognition is key in this business. You are walking into a pitch with one of the largest, most notable companies in the industry behind you.

    Cons

    It is very much a "good old boys" club atmosphere. Can be difficult to succeed unless you have a strong support structure from within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be helpful if JLL management provided a more formalized mentor program in order to groom the younger associates.

    Pros

    Jones Lang LaSalle had a great benefit package. I didn't realize it at the time but now that I'm gone I wished I still had their plan.

    Cons

    If you worked onsite for a client you advancement opportunity are significantly limited. Also, a lot ot times new hires will make more money than the senior analyst in the group,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and focus more on promoting within. I left the company because there seemed few opportunites to those of us onsite with a client
