    Pros

    really liked my manager, very supportive, continuing education, encouragement, would like to have stayed but company didn't win the account.

    Cons

    Manager selected me for employment anticipating the retirement of someone else. This problem may be just in NE coastal??-The women apparently do not like women younger, eager, ready to do a great job . This has been my only experience with this kind of thing.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of cliques at your company and protect your newbies, that manager really needed my help but did not want to face the wrath of those underlings. Culture and values must be fair to all, not just feed back what you want them to say.

    I worked at JLL full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Lots of opportunities to learn new information if there was something you did not know how to do.

    Cons

    - I think this really depends on which location you are working at. But at mine, there was so many different processes to go through to accomplish anything that it seemed like a waste of time and resources.
    - Although there were several people on my team, everyone had a totally different amount of work to do. Some people had no current projects while others had way too many to handle.
    - Although we were told in the interview process that we were expected to come in on the weekends to supervise projects, only one or two people from my team actually made the effort and I don't think that was really fair.

    Advice to Management

    - Space out the projects for the employees more evenly.
    - Make employees more accountable for the work they should be supervising.
