    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, I was always able to work my schedule around tests, projects, and other school commitments. Great learning environment for a business student. Very supportive team, willing to help you learn and walk you through new procedures / assignments. Wonderful leadership on the finance / brokerage side.

    Cons

    Sometimes getting the necessary deliverables from people can be difficult. There are some communication issues but other than that I really can't think of any cons visible from my position.

    Pros

    Work flexibility (telecommute) , decent benefits, seemingly concerned about employees welfare.

    Cons

    Company though good intentions is quite large, hard to get noticed and therefore move up the ladder. Bottom line: if want to advance in career, will probably have to leave company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to look within current talent. You will be happily surprised as to what you already have.

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a fairly new employee, I felt overwhelmed my first week or so (but honestly who isn't). The on-boarding resources are available and lots of people willing to help train and answer questions. They may not be in your office but that just helps you meet more of your peers faster. I really enjoy the people in my office as well as my regional team. I knew this was the right company for me almost instantly!

    Cons

    There are times when you have to put in extra time (when there is a big pitch, etc), but I feel like it all balances out in the long run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

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

    Pros

    Most managers offer flexible working arrangements, allowing for working remotely a couple of days a week. The dress code has been relaxed, which makes life a little easier. There is plenty of work, so you will never get bored.

    Cons

    The motto of "doing more with less" definitely applies here. Company is always in cost containment mode, which equates to reducing headcount and spreading the work to the existing individuals without any additional compensation. This eliminates the work-life balance and creates an atmosphere of work overload. Unfortunately, all this hard work is generally not rewarded with any additional compensation. The company has a record year and the employees get marginal salary increases and the tone the company sets is one of "you should be happy you have a job" instead of rewarding the employees for their efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider rewarding your devoted employees with a reasonable salary increase and bonus. When the company has record profits and the employees are given the standard 2% raise, it does very little to motivate them. Think how profitable the company could be if you actually tried motivating the employees instead of seeing how long you can string them along with minimal increases and no opportunities to grow.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good, the company is large enough where you can move and advance your career

    Cons

    Leaders have no idea what they're doing. Direct management is incompetent and is so busy shoving the JLL world down their clients' throats they can't pay attention to the needs of their own staffers. When you bring up a concern to HR and have a conversation regarding the office you're working in, nothing is done. An employee had her privacy violated by another employee - to the point where the first employee could have brought up legal action against the other employee as well as the company - and absolutely nothing was done. JLL sells unnecessary services to the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with your local-level managers. Get them to actually do their job and interface with their employees. And listen to your lower level employees. Take action when something happens in your clients' offices. Stop making people complete unnecessary reports and tasks just so someone somewhere can keep a job. The extra work just so a spreadsheet can sit in a database and never get looked at is asinine and outdated.
