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

    Pros

    Amazing benefits offered such as HSA contributions, matching 401k, flex time, work from home, etc. Mentorship programs and ERGs available to join. There is a lot of potential and plenty of room for growth within the company. Good place to develop your career!

    Cons

    Alot of employees are rehired after leaving the company because employees who stay will earn less than those who leave and come back, JLL needs to work on their compensation structure. Lots of great talent within, JLL should work on developing the talent within the company already instead of hiring externally.

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely, flexible schedules, management understand work life balance needs. You don't go unnoticed, your voice can be heard on topics affecting he office, your job, and the company. Pretty good benefits overall. I've seen worse other places.

    Cons

    I would say compensation is the only downfall. I've loved everything else about JLL to date.
