    Pros

    Great people, nice atmosphere, decent pay

    Cons

    Spend a lot of time in pointless meetings, corporate nonsense is plentiful, too much focus on doing things for "the betterment of the group" instead of focusing on your job responsibilities.

    Pros

    Management respects your decisions and allows opportunities to grow. Benefits are above average but not best. Generous PTO. Or at least than my previous employers.

    Cons

    Low raises. You have to negotiate all your pay at hire and then switch roles to get any kind of increase. Bonus only for salary workers.

    Pros

    Perks are great, staff is friendly, great working environment, free coffee. Staff outings on a quarterly basis. Had Great instructors.

    Cons

    Cubical setting, too many people to get to know people. I like smaller companies where you get to know everyone you work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a great place to work. Get to know your employees capabilities so they don't get too bored.

    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Lombard, IL

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I work as a Senior Consultant. I worked under a group called Capital Markets. The place has good scope under certain leaders. Lots of new technologies used. Lot of Mobile Development. Good place to learn. The leaders were generally receptive to new ideas.

    Cons

    Too much work pressure because of lack of structure and process in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time and budget to bring a process in place which they have already begun. Need to probably pay more because of too much pressure.

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

    Pros

    JLL offers a given client global breadth and depth with sophisticated tools and solid talent, and so an easy "sale" to the customer. Their size alone propels them to the short list of any major company in need of third party services. Carrying the JLL card imputes a certain credibility to the employee (warranted or not).

    Cons

    The pros notwithstanding, once a given contract is won, the delivery of service and dedication of appropriate resources is spotty to poor at best (as a potential client ask for references, specific to your scope, and you will find them much harder to come by than you might think). Woe to those employees left behind to fulfill a contract/assignment.

    One reads in these reviews that advancement is limited. This is particularly true from mid-management on up and consequently leads to level of paranoia which is difficult to convey. Be prepared to be second guessed from day-one, with many looking over your shoulder. As one outsider put it, "there are many sharp knives there." The successful employee is adept at watching his/her back as much as at work execution.

    The level of corporate arrogance is as palpable to the employee as it is to JLL's peer group. Anything perceived as slightly negative is quickly swept aside, and the deliverer thereof labeled a naysayer (who's days are limited).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shift focus and rewards from new business development to the accumulation of 'positive' to 'outstanding' client references (and the former will come). Look to promote from within (not just lip service), and establish 360 review process (particularly with upper management)to combat politics. Finally, strip HR of it's ridiculous influence on recruiting and hiring and shift accountability back to the hiring managers.

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

    Pros

    That I get a paycheck!

    Cons

    None, was never told the position was for only a 5 year contract and they don't provide discounted parking for those who drive, so you're expected to pay over $300.00 a month for parking. Their very unfair with your PTO, THE SYSTEM is the WORST! always logging you out in the middle of processing your work. One minute you're told to do something one way, and then you're told to do it another way. It's nonstop!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit!!
