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

    Pros

    Competent Salaries, Benefits. They are concern about safety.
    I don't see any other pros

    Cons

    No opportunity to grow and move up. No opportunities for women. They don't recognize hard working people, if you can butt kiss and look good in paper/reports and you are a man, you can move up quickly. No job security, if JLL client complains about minor things, JLL can get rid of you with the blink of an eye, even if it is unfair. People can get fired even for speeding in the parking lot. It happened to one of my colleagues. Working hard, being knowledgeable, being good at you do, being a team player is not valuable to JLL.

    Advice to Management

    Do not stop your employees from growing. Honor your word when you say your will give your employees a chance and don't lie.

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

    Pros

    Great team, convenient to get to, flexibility. Free healthy snack once every other wednesday (lol this is should be on the cons list).

    Cons

    No training, pay is about $10-20K less than what is normal for *all* HR positions across the country and especially sad since this is Chicago - this extends from bottom of the HR pool to SR HR business partner. They really need to take some of those bonuses and revenue and revaluate to treat HR better.

    Advice to Management

    Revaluate pay in HR. ASAP.

    Pros

    Fair pay and excellent coworkers.

    Cons

    Health and vision insurance is affordable until you actually need to use it; management has no vision and doesn't appreciate the talent they have.

    Advice to Management

    Find another job so the team can function and progress.

    Pros

    Great access to a global network of colleagues

    Cons

    Brokers get to operate unchecked which creates substantial problems for other employees. The word of the brokers is gold and anyone who acts as a "support role" is merely there to serve the brokers. It's a twisted relationship and completely one-sided.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. The brokers are not beautiful geniuses and support lines aren't just "cost centers" - just because a broker closes a deal it doesn't mean that they are the only ones working.

    Pros

    Great field HR people and the mean girls club has been busted up a bit over the last 2 years but some still remain that need to be weeded out. Benefits are good and the 401k match is really good.

    Cons

    The Chicago core HR group is terrible. Unprofessional and inexperienced HR leadership. People basically promoted into roles becasuse they were in the right place at the right time, not on abilities. No investment in technology or learning yet your made to do things like talent review and succession planning with no tools. LOTS of talk about developing people but no investment to upskill future leaders. Corporate Solutions is the armpit of JLL. Absolutely no training for people managers. Constantly have to tell managers "no, you can't just fire someone because they got hurt on the job". Questionable ethics, FLSA violations everywhere and no work life balance. Lack of quality recruiting resources.

    Advice to Management

    Finish weeding through the legacy HR leadership team. Invest in manager 101 training for people managers. Corporate Solutions won't be around in 5 years because you're not going to be able to staff it. Sell it now to a company that knows how to recruit and actually invests in their people.
