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

    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.

    Pros

    The benefits are pretty good, the company is large enough where you can move and advance your career

    Cons

    Leaders have no idea what they're doing. Direct management is incompetent and is so busy shoving the JLL world down their clients' throats they can't pay attention to the needs of their own staffers. When you bring up a concern to HR and have a conversation regarding the office you're working in, nothing is done. An employee had her privacy violated by another employee - to the point where the first employee could have brought up legal action against the other employee as well as the company - and absolutely nothing was done. JLL sells unnecessary services to the client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with your local-level managers. Get them to actually do their job and interface with their employees. And listen to your lower level employees. Take action when something happens in your clients' offices. Stop making people complete unnecessary reports and tasks just so someone somewhere can keep a job. The extra work just so a spreadsheet can sit in a database and never get looked at is asinine and outdated.

    Pros

    Most managers offer flexible working arrangements, allowing for working remotely a couple of days a week. The dress code has been relaxed, which makes life a little easier. There is plenty of work, so you will never get bored.

    Cons

    The motto of "doing more with less" definitely applies here. Company is always in cost containment mode, which equates to reducing headcount and spreading the work to the existing individuals without any additional compensation. This eliminates the work-life balance and creates an atmosphere of work overload. Unfortunately, all this hard work is generally not rewarded with any additional compensation. The company has a record year and the employees get marginal salary increases and the tone the company sets is one of "you should be happy you have a job" instead of rewarding the employees for their efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider rewarding your devoted employees with a reasonable salary increase and bonus. When the company has record profits and the employees are given the standard 2% raise, it does very little to motivate them. Think how profitable the company could be if you actually tried motivating the employees instead of seeing how long you can string them along with minimal increases and no opportunities to grow.

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for when I first started but has taken a turn since then. Pay, vacation time and insurance are the good benefits this company has to offer.

    Cons

    People are not friendly at all. Training program is very poor. The only people who get promotions are people who work more then 12 houers per day and over the weekend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can work from home which is very nice.
