    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I wished I could say something here. They have great benefits.

    Cons

    Personal growth is nearly impossible as they like to backdoor nearly all their staff. Make sure you set reasonable work load expectations and timeframes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Again, nothing to say than it took everything I had not to pursue legal action against this company.

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They look to involve staff and collaborate. They empower you to get the job done and they are flexible in providing solutions and value to their clients.

    Cons

    Full on-boarding for remote employees is bumpy everywhere. They are working to streamline setting up for applications and systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep valuing your staff and recognizing them all as contributors. Activate discount for ESPP, it will drive employees engagement into the stock/value of the company.

    Pros

    Work-life balance was great. Was able to adjust my working hours to suit my family commitments and work from home when required.

    Cons

    Sometime unclear where the company is going. JLL should probably improve communication to the bottom part of the employees.

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    JLL is a large company and so has many resources to support your work function. It is generally better run than CBRE, Cushman & Wakefield and most of the other large competition. It also has a large international presence.

    Cons

    Benefits are barely competitive and have been reduced in recent years. Unless you work in the Chicago HQ, there's little opportunity to meet leadership or even fellow employees in other job functions. Internal transfers are very challenging - you have to network as if you were looking for an external job. Like most big companies, HR is there to support management, not the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees constantly hear about how well the company is doing but none of that success filters down to the regular employees. Our benefits are generally unchanged or reduced each year and annual raises barely keep up with inflation (2-3%). Instead of putting share holders first, dare to make employees the company's top priority (like the most succesful Silicon Valley companies).
