    I have been working at JLL full-time

    Pros

    Lots of different departments doing lots of interesting things. There is plenty of opportunity to jump around to other areas of interest, and people seem supportive of this.

    Dependable industry - businesses need places to work.

    Cons

    It's a big company, so you can tend to feel like a number.

    Office politics and red tape can hold any major changes up, especially with regard to promotions. Management only reviews promotions on an annual basis, so if you're hired on an odd interval, you'll miss those opportunities or have to wait additional time.

    It's commercial real estate, it's not that sexy.
