    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle

    Pros

    Good on-line training resources. Good depth of staff experience. Good IT support and laptops. Decent health and dental benefits, as well.

    Cons

    Chokingly corporate, zero management encouragement for staff mentoring and advancement, unrealistic expectation that work dominates 24 hours of every day, weekends included.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read "It's Your Ship". JLL's management style 180 degrees off from the guidance in that book.

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Very appreciative of their employees! Lots of opportunities for advancement as well as networking opportunities!

    Cons

    Annmarie England and autumn cleary. If you work in the pittsburgh office, those 2 are the epitome of favoritism. Annmarie wrote me up for being impatient because when i was on the phone i would im an employee with the question (so i would not have to put the person on hold) if they would not respond i would simply ask someone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to stop making power go to your head. Us subordinates may not be as strong brave or smart as you but we still do have a side to the story.

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities and a willingness to grow the employees with in the company.

    Cons

    Boots on the ground are compensated at a lower level. To move up within the organization the employee must be willing to transfer accounts every couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never negotiate a contract without a training budget.

    Pros

    Great sense of team work, big company, lots of opportunity, great benefits and flexibility.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best in the industry. You are constantly asked to do more with less. There is not a lot of life/work balance. To get a head in the company you have to spend more time at work or on the road.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More promotions and recognition to your employees goes a long ways.

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit within a large corporation. Opportunities to implement your ideas or move into new career directions. Focus on utilizing data for continuous improvement. Six Sigma training & utilization. Life/work balance can be achieved if you are transparent with your desire to do so.

    Cons

    As with most all organizations of JLL's size, success/failure and satisfaction are highly dependent upon the individuals you work with/for and/or clients you're serving. Colleagues on one account may have a completely different experience from those at another account. Corporate-level positions may be some what insulated from these variations. Benefits are okay, not great.
