I worked at JLL as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

The position was well paid, in a pleasant environment. Staff was generally open given an interest in opportunity.

Cons

Must be a self starter, without provocation, one will be left behind. It took over two weeks to get set up on a computer.

Advice to Management

Create a more concrete set of goals for summer interns.

    I have been working at JLL full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great talent pool
    Roles are as challenging as you make them
    Ability to move between functions/services
    Decent benefits package
    Flexibility of many roles (location agnostic); locations in every major market

    Cons

    Zero diversity in leadership positions
    Poor employee development
    Salaries are below industry average (well below top competitors)
    "Entrepreneurial culture" can be detrimental to great workers who need career guidance

    Advice to Management

    If you're serious about diversity and employee development, prove it. Back up the speeches and events with real programming that develops newly on-boarded and hungry talent. Invest time and money in education, skills development, training, etc. Cast a wider net both internally and externally to recruit, hire, develop and retain diverse talent. Black, Asian, and Hispanic talent is scarce at the firm, and what does exist leaves quickly because there's no firm commitment to development. They're rarely included in conversations around growing their careers or the firm. Also, restructuring advancement to loosely mimic the consultant culture (analyst>associate>manager>sr. manager>vice president, etc.) might be helpful; outlining possible career paths and the metrics needed to achieve them would give employees a clearer vision of what's possible for them 3, 5, 10 years from their hire date. Finally, require management and leadership training for all people managers.
