    Pros

    Very organized, extremely metric based reviews and accountability. There are plenty of resources on a team to help with issues that may arise to find resolution and help make sure its completely taken care of.

    Cons

    Time management, this company operates at an extremely LEAN structure and sometime metrics along cannot measure the success of an account.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't just stay narrow focused on the metrics. please look beyond the initial request and also use metrics to make your final decisions.

    Pros

    You get to work with smart motivated people who are willing to share their facilities management and real estate expertise. This is a great place to build a career in the CRE industry. There is a lot of room for advancement. JLL also holds several very professional Training Conferences throughout the year.

    Cons

    Some accounts seem to be staffed too lean, which can cause turnover and create a stressful work environment. Also, when working on an account you do not have very much visibility to JLL as a whole. Additionally, the overall company operates within distinct silos.

    Advice to Management

    Work on connecting individual accounts to the larger organization. Strategically find ways to build company loyalty with all employees. On account it can be easy to blend into the other companys culture and practices. JLL is the industry leader in CRE. This idea of the JLL difference should be reinforced and built across the company.

    Everyone here really takes an interest in you as a n intern and makes sure you get the most out of your experience.

    Pros

    Company was great to work for. Management cared for the employees.

    Cons

    Very, very few downsides. It would be nice to feel like your suggestions for improvement are taken to higher levels. Perhaps they were or perhaps they weren't. Cannot verify this.

    Cons

    At times, seems to take on endeavors without proper planning which leads to unattainable metrics. The objectives are not always made clear.

    Advice to Management

    Include risk management position to client teams. Ensure that communication is vertical and lateral to include feedback of the communication.

    Pros

    The work-life and office culture are great. This may not be for every office globally, but speaking from my own experience I work with many talented people. My co-workers are awesome, it can be very stressful during certain periods of the year, but we all smile and get through it as a team. JLL has been one of the best jobs I've ever had. They really care about their employees and are very understanding and cater to employee needs.

    Cons

    The work is very demanding. Cyclical financial reporting for many owners can be very overwhelming at times. Commercial real-estate accounting isn't for everyone. The work MUST be very accurate and their is little room for error. As mentioned earlier the cyclical part of the job is more demanding at certain times of the year than others...of course stress will increase during month-end close, but it increases beyond normal for quarterly closing and year-end closing. This job isn't for someone that carries themselves in an unorganized fashion. Organization and detail are crucial.
