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

    Pros

    Firm is evolving to focus on the human experience which includes their employees, clients and customers. Nice office space, decent 401k match. Flexibility to work from home.

    Cons

    Very corporate, political, hard to get exposure in such a big firm in order to be recognized or promoted, unless you know the right people. Firm operates very lean, employees are stretched thin and business is tasked with doing more with less employees. Very siloed, so hard to collaborate to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    Less reactive approach to how the organization is structured when trying to manage to plan. JLL talks about career development but I don't see it. Focus on your skilled trades and invest in building that pipeline.

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

    Pros

    JLL is working to become a technology based company, so there are a lot of opportunities for IT / BI related resources in an industry that is fairly lucrative.

    Cons

    It is a really big company, so typical bureaucracy related issues including politics and excessive processes and documentation to perform some simple tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Need to flatten out the organization, which I believe is what they are attempting to do. Perhaps offer more incentives for performance.
