What people are saying about Jones Lang LaSalle
a year ago
Advice on moving from JLL Strategy to Pure Strategy (Big 4 etc)? I'm great at my job and can back it up with accomplishments, reputation, and confidence. Outward strengths are : Selling, Stakeholder Management, Project Management, Sustainability, Networking, Real Estate. While I have been complimented on "having a natural affinity for strategy & MC" I think that my technical strategy skills won't be honed at JLL to the extent at a pure strategy firm. I also don't want real estate specialty.

Accenture Deloitte PwC KPMG EY Boston Consulting Group hiring managers in management consulting - What's the chances of you hiring a competent and confident consultant with 5 years of experience in management consulting at JLL? Would they have to already be an expert in the subject you're hiring them in, or could they have some relevant knowledge and be looking to learn new skills with the switch? Would their CV even make it past the algorithm? I'd like to move out of property to pure strategy

- 5.0Oct 20, 2023Maintenance TechnicianCurrent EmployeeCrest Hill, IL
Everything, pay could be higher, Curt and Amad are Great managers
Pay could be higher, little low for industry
- 5.0Nov 15, 2023Maintenance Technician IICurrent Employee, more than 1 yearMatteson, IL
You are given a vast amount of online training which is beneficial to quick learning but only appeals to those with a computer background. There is the material handling equipment side (MHE) and the robotics side (AR) which are connected but operate on different levels. Seems like older maintenance technicians prefer non-computer work whereas modernized equipment demands for technicians with a systems work history.
There is a hard line to decipher between performing true maintenance and explaining to Amazon operations how poorly designed the facility is. However, the RME technician walks away a champion learning the technologies of robotics and conveyors that Amazon could not even explain themselves.

Smart people, excellent research platform, good people
Brokers can be demanding, not too much diversity
- 3.0Oct 9, 2023MarketingFormer Employee, more than 10 yearsChicago, IL
JLL is a robust organization with a lot of talented people. They have an incredible number of resources. Overall leadership and desired corporate culture are great.
The Americas marketing leadership is cold as ice. Everyone and everything are a just budget line item and they do not understand the needs of their business or their people. Very focused on creating process and taking a one-size fits all approach to marketing. Dynamic marketing used to set JLL apart, that is gone. There is also no benefit to staying with the organization, longevity is not rewarded. They continue to hire in at a higher rate of pay than existing employees.3
- 4.0Nov 27, 2023Assistant Facilities ManagerFormer Employee, more than 1 yearAtlanta, GA
Competitive Pay, Great Benefits (401k match + healthcare + parental leave), Structured Pay Increases + Reviews, Great Client Relationships, Lots of Growth Opportunity
Long Hours, poor Work-Life Balance (Facilities Function Specific)

I had a great creative director and was allowed to work 100% remotely
Design is not often listened to in any meaningful way, you have to just do what you're told.
- 3.0Oct 19, 2023Senior Project ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 3 yearsChicago, IL
The JLL name carries a lot of weight in the industry. People are very interested in meeting you because of the company name. Within the company, there are a lot of internal resources that you can leverage. Because of the history of the company, you get to touch interesting and high profile projects. The company seems to be very flexible and there is a nice work/life balance.
There doesn't seem to be much financial incentive to work any harder then you have to. Compensation is capped and there isn't any feasible ways of making more money, unless you're a broker. Upper management doesn't seem to be able to do anything about compensation. It seems like it is HR and finance who make compensation decisions. Because the company is so large, at times if can feel like you are just a cog in the wheel. My conclusion of the company is that it is a great place to work if you are close to retirement and don't wish to rock the boat.3
