    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.

    Pros

    Working for JLL is satisfying. For the area the pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Their raise policy I do not like. It is based on all engineers and not on the individual.
    If you are scored high by your CE they upper mngmt who have never met you will lower your score to put you in a bracket they are comfortable with.

    Advice to Management

    Give raised based on CE recommendations.
