    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    JLL is a solid, balanced and stable company, which leaves plenty of room for growth.They also provide multiple opportunities to learn and develop within the company as well.

    Cons

    Since it's so large, it may be easy to simply refill a role should the needs not be met, but hardly considered a negative or unreasonable.

    A good company but not enough space to advance into better positions

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

    Pros

    Company vehicle loaded with good field tools and equipment, Good managers that seem to actually care about you, Good starting salaries and benefits.

    Cons

    No place to move up into a better position - very limited advancement opportunities, all meetings done through computer and not enough " in person" time with immediate manager, small raises for technicians but good raises for upper management, who sometimes do not know how to work with the field techs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expand your time out in the field to meet with Mobile techs; Allow greater feedback from field techs about technical aspects of clients needs and then actually apply the information in the corporate level as well. Give "earned raises" not "just everyone gets something across the board" raises.

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You are able to work independently. Flexibility with work schedule. Worldwide opportunities.

    Cons

    The Brokers you work for are very high maintenance. Some will not respect you unless you make the same six figures they do. Very demanding with high expectations but salaries do not match the quality of work expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More competitive salary packages, more support for the administrative staff.

    JLL is great, Public Institutions is HORRIBLE

    Current Employee - Analyst In Public Institutions  in  Washington, DC
    Current Employee - Analyst In Public Institutions in Washington, DC

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Most of the other financial analysts are smart and motivated. JLL has a big brand name to it and projects can be high visibility.

    Cons

    The Public Institutions CEOs are out-dated and out of touch with attracting and retaining talent. They're messages during the PI Town Hall meetings are feel-good but absolutely do not match what they practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PI is the worst business unit to be a young, ambitious person in. There is little training, no transparency in promotion/raises/bonuses, and I dont know a single analyst who genuinely likes working in the business unit.

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    They make an attempt at giving people a work/life balance by adopting a working remotely strategy.

    Cons

    As the company grows, no staff increases are made to take on additional workload. Raises are poor and bonuses are not inline with performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees by giving better raises and bonus. Staff appropriately and reward individuals based on merit and not on race and gender only.
