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

    Pros

    It feels like a family environment with people who are genuinely concerned about each other.

    Cons

    Pay needs to reflect the job description or at least they could change the title of the position to more suit the expectation of the job in order to give qualified people a decent salary.

    Advice to Management

    There is too much emphasis on recruiting the best talents by giving them a sales pitch but the way up is almost impossible given the very limited opportunities available in places like south Florida. Hence, certain posts should be eliminated and renamed to suit the nature of the job that employees are performing so they could get a living wage.

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

    Pros

    JLL has been amazing. Although I office at the client site and I'm the only JLL employee there, my supervisor is only one call/instant message away and very supportive. The pay and flexibility to work from home is great!

    Cons

    Your experience can certainly vary depending on your account/client. Unfortunately for me, I work with a demanding group of people who are constantly trying to undermine the value of having an onsite FM, which can be extremely frustrating when you're the only JLL/facilities employee onsite. Luckily, you can move around after 1 year, and the company has plenty of opportunity all over.
