Company with strong potential

Research Analyst (Former Employee)

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

ProsBecause of the nature of brokerage, you always get to work in one of the nicest buildings in the city. Quality of employees is high and very friendly. Nice little perks like great coffee, stocked refrigerator of juices, teas, and soft drinks.

ConsAt times can be very bureaucratic. If you're not a leasing agent or on the investment sales team, you have to accept that you're not that important. While friendly, the agents stick to themselves and are typically the "cool kids".

Advice to Senior ManagementOverall doing a good job, but it wouldn't hurt to acknowledge the contributions of back office departments.

A successful, well organized corporation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsThe atmosphere is professional and everyone is working hard to accomplish their goals. Day to day work experience varies according to department and supervisor.

ConsThe training could be more comprehensive and there is little follow up after hire. Although ease of moving to other departments is offered at hire, it is hard to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to the people in the field for suggestions.

Overall positive, great peer network and people

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe company is full of smart, real estate savvy people from a variety of backgrounds, and it has an excellent reputation which is helpful for career development. I loved my peer network, and though I'm no longer with the firm (moved), I am still in close contact with many people.

ConsCareer development, promotion, pay vary dramatically depending on group, division, your manager. To move ahead in your career here, you must be very clear and assertive about your vision, direction and needs and then ask for them to be fulfilled. Although the company purports to support moving between divisions, in practice it is quite difficult.

Good, stable employer who takes care of it's own

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than 5 years

ProsReally smart and nice people; great projects; friendly environment; good benefits and flexibility

ConsNo clear career path set for anyone - you have to make your own and make it a priority to move up in the company; otherwise you will stay in the same position forever with small pay increases

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on employee career management so you don't lose valuable people to competitors; keep things fresh by letting people mix in and out of the different business lines
