    I worked at LaSalle Investment Management full-time


    Very professional work environment with very talented and hardworking people. The senior leaders have integrity and expect it from everyone else. Lots of different funds, products, and geographies makes the work interesting.


    The culture is a little "buttoned up" and some groups work very long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up with the transparency to the rest of the firm. Your attention to implementing best practices, accountability (360 review, etc.), and promoting the right people is noticed by junior employees and will benefit the organization in the near and long term.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at LaSalle Investment Management (Baltimore, MD) in January 2014.


    Very straight forward, the management team did not ask any out of the ordinary questions. There were two interviews, each with 3 people. Most interviewers were nervous and read right off a piece of paper with questions.
