    Pros

    Market rate salary, everyday fruits

    Cons

    The company is a very challenging workplace with some difficult people to work with. Politics is everywhere are if one is not very very careful or a seasoned politics man is easy to have sleepless nights in here. Work is expected 24/7, weekends (on a regular basis) with no off sicks. Everyone here comes to work even when sick due to the work pressure. No roles and responsibilities are defined (at least in IT) and so it is very difficult to understand who delivers what. As a result it is a very chaotic workplace and employees work in fear rather than by collaboration. Communication of senior management is very unprofessional as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish good company values and instil in the employees.

    Pros

    Great view of Singapore, downtown location, international company so looks good on the CV. Lots of departments to hypothetically move to, if you can manage a transfer

    Cons

    Horrible, horrible work life balance. Expected to work 16 hours and show up the next day promptly. Office environment is ice cold. Burnout and turnover is extremely high - stayed there nearly 2 years, almost everyone was different at the end compared to when I started.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really not fixable problems. JLL is a slow and stodgy behemoth that will probably not be going anywhere anytime soon. Known as the highest price option and deservedly so - would be nice if the office staff were paid accordingly.

    Pros

    In all honesty not much just the work from home

    Cons

    They aren't honest or upfront about anything. No work life balance. Can't move anywhere. Constant change. They love catch phrases and throw them around all the time but they don't really get what they mean.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat support staff with respect. Get rid of lackluster management increase salaries.

    Pros

    Great team environment, it's as though the sink is shipping but we still have a positive outlook as we are out of control. Paid time off. Mid management are fair.

    Cons

    Mid management have no control of what is ahead. Senior management have no idea what our jobs are and like to promise a lot without getting their hands dirty. Beware which team you are on. Depending on their contracts you will be paid less. Yup, more experience doesn't matter and wages are inconsistent. Discouraging and good luck with that 1-3% raise. "Cost Savings" - we don't even merit a trash can. Oh, and they don't cover education. So don't believe the benefits. And benefits? You won't be able to afford them, better off with Obama care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. Seems like you are all quitting and finding better jobs that pay better.

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle

    Pros

    There was a multitude of equipment and facilities to learn about and take care of.... I enjoyed my job as "Mobile Facilities Engineer".

    Cons

    As I reflect, there was never any positive discussions about how team was doing an "effective" job.... the leadership always seemed to "pull everybody down".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire effective leaders with quantifiable leadership skills and pay your talented service people competitive wages commensurate with the work they perform and duties they take responsibility for. Managers are NOT the only ones responsible for getting work done... they merely push buttons on a keyboard and ACT like they are actually being effective at their jobs... the real hero's are the people who get dirty every day!

    Pros

    The company offers decent benefits. However, don't plan to use the PTO you're given. Workloads are impossible and it's expected your work nights, weekends and during time off.

    Cons

    I think the recent Best Places to Work in Chicago feature was telling. I thought it was interesting employees were quoted about how stressful the environment is with difficult clients. The company sets unrealistic targets, workloads and puts departments at odds with one another. While there are plenty of executives and directors, the workload falls with the minions with no respect to individuals. They won't let you take PTO in a given year until you accrue it, but then make it impossible to use it with the volume of work given. Then, they make it incredibly difficult to carry over the time. You can forget work-life balance it you work here. And the ethics of this Company are even worse. People bring their buddies on as consultants. People are managed by fear and there's a constant churn of staff. So, don't believe the smoke, mirrors and fancy employment marketing campaigns. It's all a pipe dream. Burned out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Control, alt, delete. Look at your infrastructure and leadership team and start over. A systematic outside analysis of the spans of control, decision-making processes, and a deep dive into the unethical management practices is what is needed.

    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.
