    Pros

    The company offers plenty of opportunities to learn through various programs, seminars and online classes. Lots of team activities and fairy positive work culture. Endless amount of company resources for education and furthering knowledge on your own.

    Cons

    Very top heavy run company. Mid level managers not always valued for fear of upper management having to compete internally. Company is so large that good quality employees often get overlooked for promotions.

    JLL provides a great brand name, and Public Institutions a great learning experience

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

    Pros

    I started at JLL as a summer intern and transitioned to the Public Institutions (PI) department working as an analyst full time. I have been working in PI for just about a year. After reading some other reviews on here, it seems as though PI has an undeserved bad reputation. Everyone who I worked with was knowledgeable, friendly, and motivated. The quarterly town hall meetings as well as the leaderships' monthly emails were informative and helped create a close culture amongst a department spread out across the country. I cannot emphasize enough how great the culture is within PI. Finally, PI work is unique and provides the analyst with a great opportunity to gain exposure in all the different phases of the real estate life cycle.

    Cons

    Although it was easy to transition as an intern from the finance department to an analyst in PI, it was extremely difficult to switch into a different department once I was already an in PI. This is the primary reason I am leaving the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue monthly newsletters and quarterly town halls. Make the application process more transparent when an employee applies to an open position within a different department.

    Pros

    Good name, Lots of opportunity, good benefits, great people, environment, global company, many resources, stable

    Cons

    great work load with little financial benefit, work-life balance, poor recognition, ineffective resources, too much reporting, disorganized, relatively poor upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Disconnect between field and corporate work. standard programming does not always work under this management model, compensation is good for the most part but little compensation related to great success is discouraging.

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

    Pros

    Many real estate offices operate in silos, but this is an amazing office culture with hard-working people who are very friendly and team-oriented. It is a collaborative environment in which they treat everyone well, and I got to know each person individually and have nothing but the best to say about them. I am a huge family-oriented person, and this is a very family-based atmosphere.

    Cons

    It is a competitive work environment, and it can occasionally be too demanding, although that is true of any job regardless of the company. I do not have too many bad things to say about the people or the environment.

    Pros

    Smart people, great opportunities and a global reach. My department allows work-at-home and some flex time. In that sense, work-life is excellent (but hours are long.)

    Cons

    People management often comes up as a weakness here although I think it's improving. My own manager is good but I think that it's inconsistent. Pay seems to be a bit below market. Benefits are decent.

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

    Pros

    - Great people
    - International working opportunities
    - Great benefits (pay for phone, HSA and overall good medical/dental/etc.)
    - During my time there, which was under two years, I saw two co-workers get promoted

    Cons

    - If you are not producing revenue for the company, the company does not make as much of an investment in you
    - Additionally if you do not support a revenue-producing team, there are less perks
    - High turnover amongst brokers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Consider a rotational program for young talent to learn other aspects of commercial real estate
    - Invest more time in working on retention
