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

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

    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.

    Pros

    I wished I could say something here. They have great benefits.

    Cons

    Personal growth is nearly impossible as they like to backdoor nearly all their staff. Make sure you set reasonable work load expectations and timeframes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Again, nothing to say than it took everything I had not to pursue legal action against this company.

    Pros

    Flexible working hours as long as you get the work done

    Cons

    No employee engagement at all; bullying at Senior Management level unless you are part of the team. No value in Talents and no strong company culture at all.
    No respect and trust in people. Low performers are rewarded with promotion and good performers are heavily neglected

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the political game and get the job done!

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

    Pros

    If you happen to be one of the "favorites" they will just give you everyone else's job without extra pay

    Cons

    Very "clique" like atmosphere. Nobody really knows what anyone does and they are always trying to save a penny which means they will find a way to cheat you out of your overtime pay and bully you into working more overtime. It's the craziest corporation I've ever worked for. Totally unprofessional, very gossipy and back stabing. We had 100% turnover in a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about your people and take care of them. They are the ones client facing and can save or loose a client. If you can't keep quality talent or hard workers you will never survive.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Indianapolis, IN
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN

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

    Pros

    There were free parking spots, surface and garage, in short walking distance of the front door. The building had decent amenities and there were seldom issues with the building itself. Hours were flexible as people came and went as they pleased, a sign of poor management. There were conference rooms available to make private calls and look for new jobs.

    Cons

    Sexist environment where women were taunted, treated like personal assistants, and not promoted. Alcoholism at an all time high and alcohol was always available in the refrigerator. Racist comments heard often. No minorities on staff. Bullying managers, who were supported by management and human resources. No front desk receptionist, just a bell and phone. Often saw guests wandering around the office. Office was broken into and computers were stolen due to no building and space security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring managers with master degrees in business who know how to manage others. Hire minorities and promote women. Spend less on drinking parties and more on real marketing. Avoid hiring and supporting immature, racist brokers.

    Pros

    It's hard to get fired - especially if you're related to or personal friends of management (a lot are). There are a ton of employees and management who have no idea what they are doing and still keep their jobs. Good place to get your foot in the door if you're an accountant but you'll never make much.

    Cons

    Heavy favoritism. Low pay. No respect. Poor treatment. VERY poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to embark on a serious internal marketing campaign and offer a competitive wage so they can get and hang onto better people. It would also be an excellent idea to get all the managers and supervisors enrolled in effective leadership courses. Also, a bigger office is needed. The one currently used was outgrown 10 months ago. People are currently squeezing into conference rooms and are parking near a restaurant 1/4 mile away with no shuttle service. This place needs HELP!
