I worked at JLL full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There were a lot of opportunities to move within the Marketing, Communications and Research function if you're identified as a top performer and you sit in Corporate. Senior leaders were easy to access and career development/performance management was a priority. The environment is highly competitive, which works well for some and is very difficult for others.

Cons

Without a strong manager advocating on your behalf, opportunities to advance would be minimal. Face time still matters, especially when it comes to stretch assignments or being identified as a top performer. The company is constantly adjusting/overhauling organizational and leadership structures which requires employees to be in a constant state of change. This is especially difficult for employees who need consistency.

Advice to Management

Pour more time and effort into building personal relationships with team members. You'll get more engaged and committed employees who will be willing to give discretionary efforts on your behalf.

    I have been working at JLL full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learn excellent best practices and a variety of projects types within commercial real estate development/project managment

    Cons

    Some lack of cohesion due to the fact that much of the staff is project based and work either in field offices or spend lots of time outside of the main office.

    Advice to Management

    Be more visible on a project basis and connect more with employees through in person contact as opposed to videos, frequent emails, and web meetings.
