    Pros

    It is a great work life balance atmosphere. There are plenty of intelligent people working at JLL. Because the environment is so diverse, your client has access to a plethora of information regarding commercial real estate.

    Cons

    JLL is very top heavy. They rarely promote within. Training and/or mentoring within groups are almost non-existent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote within and invest in training or mentoring new hires.

    If you want to work here start high on your pay.
    Then only expect a 2-3% a year increase.

    Pros

    The people you work with work as a team, we are located all over the world, so the companie does not depend on the US economy only.
    Blessed to have this job.

    Cons

    The teams that work out in the field on the accounts need to share in the compensation programs that management and corporate get from our hard work.
    We lose our team spirit when we are not included in the profits we help build.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you take away the incentive for The employees to make more by doing more they will grow stagnant.
    We all do this for money.
    Look at what happened to Barnes distribution.
    They made it impossible for their sales team to earn a commission so the sales team lost motivation and realized more accounts mean more work at the same amount of pay that's not too hard to figure out why they quit trying, who wants to work harder for nothing.

    Pros

    There are multiple cultures depending on which part of the diverse business you are in but everyone is very client oriented. Truly global opportunities for those who seek them out. Well respected management team.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge but probably no better/worse than any competitors. Sometimes can feel a bit disconnected from the greater firm if you are focused on a single client/client site.

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, highly regarded firm within the real estate world, nice offices, decent benefits

    Cons

    Pay is on the low-end, influx of former consultants (Accenture) at the senior/C-suite level has changed the dynamic - what once was a highly ethical and respectful workplace is now fueled by leaders who are verbally abusive, uninformed, and not supportive of furthering their employees' careers within the firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what is happening a few levels below you. Your new hires are bringing in a negative working environment and JLL is losing what made it magical. Employee satisfaction is at a low, leaders need to step up and show that they are moving the company forward while maintaining our culture.
