Great large company with great people

Associate Project Manager (Former Employee)
New York, NY

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

Pros-Diverse range of talents and expertise, so opportunity to learn a lot from your peers
-Employee evaluation/promotion process seeks to be fair and allows employees to set on goals/career direction/annual targets
-Excellent platform for learning how to do things by the books and the correct way; for a younger professional who does not have strong notions already about how to operate, this is a great place to gain strong fundamentals.
-Good benefits and good compensation compared with market
-Above average culture, and strong ethics

Cons-Suffers from being a huge company with tens-of-thousands of employees and operations in almost every segment of real estate. I think this makes it difficult to convey a clear strategy that employees can feel passionate about getting behind. The goals/strategy seems to be "we are big, let's get bigger" which is great but it's not a mission that really inspires employees looking for more than just a stable paycheck.
-Your experience depends on your managers. Very detailed processes established for how managers and employees should interact. Some managers take this structure and its awesome. Others simply don't care and have been at JLL long enough to where they don't have to worry about not implementing because they are high enough to be untouchable. Some other managers are new leaders brought in from outside the company (sometimes for one-off projects). These people often do not buy into the system JLL has established and it shows in how they deal with and manage their employees. This can have a huge impact on individual experiences at the company.

Advice to Senior Management-Focus on creating a more inspiring mission
-Much allow more space for ground-up innovation. TOO much top down innovation. For example, the daVinci program harvests good ideas from employees so they can be implemented from the top. This is a good start but really innovation is better if the initial implementation happens at the bottom level and filters upward instead. It's faster, people feel they have at stake in their ideas, and people feel less like cogs in a giant machine. They feel ownership and the capacity to actually help build the company . Focus on allowing employees to utilize the JLL platform and resources to innovate. Innovation happens in the trenches. Over time there is no reason tech startups will not undermine the industry leadership JLL has because its innovation that does happen is SLOW SLOW SLOW and CAREFUL CAREFUL CAREFUL. The industry is a ripe for outside disruption. The internal tendency towards incrementalism is a text book symptom of a company that has grown to its size. It's a company well positioned to change the world and the industry (it has smart people, resources, and industry connections to make things happen), but my guess is that it probably won't.
