    Pros

    Advancement is possible, good benefits, clear career path assistance.

    Cons

    If you are working in a client management account you need to realize that we are in the business of assisting our clients in saving money and that affects your budgets both professionally and personally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A better connection between the client account reps and corporate HR needs to be established. Sometimes it feels as though we are not working for the same company as other colleagues.

  3. Great company - for entrepreneurs - if you are looking for support look to their competitors

    Pros

    Compensation was commensurate with performance and was fairly allocated across Accounts. Senior directors are often paid 3-4X what junior directors are.

    Cons

    Promotions are very tricky - and as in most Firms - very political. Office culture in Chicago is fantastic!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider adding some layers of support to the corporate services business. It feels like you are regularly re-inventing the wheel.

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Average salary, good benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of on site control of management, as a third party manager there is a limited capability of control. Depending on the site, could have a great, or horrible manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep in contact with all of your site employees. You never really know if a manager is hiding things if they are your only point of contact, and the site employees have no way to reach out.

    Pros

    Decent Pay, ability to work from home (A lot) if you have the right boss.

    Cons

    Contractor: The Customer will mistreat you, create a Hostile work environment and JLL won't attempt to speak to the Customer in fear of retributions. You must put up with the swearing, sexist, degrading and dehumanizing verbal abuse from the Client/Customer on a daily basis. JLL basically takes the job away from the host (Client) and this creates a negative and hostile environment to work in. Even if you work above and beyond expectations the client is not respectful nor caring as they only care about is themselves. "Threats of firing JLL from local Managers to JLL Employees" is almost a daily occurrence and JLL HR is nonexistent. You communicate through emails to a distant office with HR and no one wants to rock the boat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When in position: Lead. Idle comments from the local client threatening to fire people or walk them off premises on a daily basis need to be addressed to their management. Pay is decent and benefits so-so.
