    Pros

    Nothing good about them , what so ever

    Cons

    Lie to clients, no knowledge of healthcare, yet trying to snatch the market in Operations/Engineering, lie to managers they hired from the hospital they take over. Unfair to employees who speak the truth about harassment from superiors

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a Life and get out of Healthcare, go back to Chicago!

    Pros

    Start time is later than most. Everyone gets a cubicle, no offices.

    Cons

    Bullies are encouraged and supported. Severe harassment is ignored when reported to corporate HR. Sexist culture. No minorities hired. Blatant lying to clients. Childish behaviorat all times. Not well respected in the industry. The worst place to work in real estate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire bullies, not the victims.

    Pros

    Good for people out if college, get experience, good on resume. Good benefits, holidays and PTO.

    Cons

    HR and CEO let abusive managers remain without penalty, but will let go of good talent go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of executives who have a track record of yelling at their employees.

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

    Pros

    It was a steady pay check in a weak economy. There were opportunities to upgrade computer and management skills on a frequent basis. I did get to work with some very good people. I did learned a lot from a few of them. Most of best left before I did.

    Cons

    There is no life/work balance. Some managers in our group were down right over bearing. Getting any of your PTO was a challenge. "Use it or Lose it" policy was a rip off at the end of each year. As a single parent, it was difficult to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your workers' home lives more.

    Pros

    PTO is decent, that's about it.

    Cons

    Culture of intimidation-HR is a nightmare, difficult to advance, low pay with high performance expectations. Everybody is worried they're next on the chopping block to be fired. Write-ups occur after any and all call offs/early dismissals even if you provide a doctor's note and/or have accrued PTO. Office culture is more like high school, the gossip mill is relentless. Extremely high turnover due to people quitting and/or getting fired. Benefits are a joke unless you make enough to afford the better packages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider paying your full time employees as much or more than the temps they're forced to train every 6-8 weeks, advance people who have been there for years in the same position when they deserve it, knock it off with the double standards (scolding underlings for using office communications while spending the entire day IMing a significant other). On that note, it's bad form to involve yourself on a personal (romantic) level with other people in the office.

    Former Employee - Facilities Manager in Denver, CO

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits were good, the pay was pretty good. Overall, the job was not worth the pay or the pain I had to go through on a daily basis. All of the turnover created many opportunities, but I'm not sure that was actually a pro.

    Cons

    No training provided, expectations were too high for my tenure there, and the upper management was the worst I have ever seen. Very disorganized in every way! If you are looking for a long-term career, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and actually listen to what your employees are telling you. Provide adequate training before throwing your employees into a bad situation created long ago.

    Pros

    None. none, none, none, none

    Cons

    Everything, they ended up firing the managers that really did work, and left us with no night manager, one supervisor was bragging that she got every one fired, and the other supervisor is having a relationship with a guy on the floor. Most of the employees get paid less than the temps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How can you give everyone one a second chance? but not to some people - plus don't scream at people when they get up to throw something away

    Pros

    Benefits are great lots of PTO

    Cons

    I was excited to work for JLL but found it extremely difficult to work as an Accountant off Site. The people they hired remotely didn't have the right skills and wouldn't learn. I couldn't get people to work together and communicate. I felt like I was the only member on my team that cared. Management would have conference calls with the team but nothing improved and there wasn't any follow through. That was a common theme with my group so there was a lot of turn over in my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a better system that works. Instead of blaming and finding fault help with finding and following through with solutions that make sense. Listen to your employees.
