    Pros

    Gaining plenty of good experience learning from intelligent and experienced colleagues.
    Majority of colleagues are sociable, friendly, willing to assist.
    Work-life balance is maintainable when pro-active and organised.

    Cons

    Narrow range of projects.
    Middle management do not really have a strategy, strategy of senior management does not get implemented properly for this.
    Compensation is below industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are some good initiatives and strategies which are being implemented by senior management. However I believe they need to employ the correct people in middle management who support and understand the value of these initiatives so as to effectively implement these strategies within all levels of the business.

    Pros

    All the tools you need to pitch and win business. Research and marketing provide the information you need ready to deliver or present to the client. Emphasis on ethics and integrity makes JLL a great place to work and a trusted advisor to our clients. Strong leadership contributes to a positive culture.

    Cons

    JLL has experienced rapid growth and the organizational support effectiveness appears to have struggled to keep up. While senior management is working hard to address this situation it can be more difficult than it should be to get their attention on ideas to streamline operations or change the way things are done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to incorporate the agility of a smaller boutique firm with the JLL platform and we will be unbeatable.

    Pros

    If you are driven and are supported by your management, you can do very well with this company. Their very large global footprint means you can find employment almost anywhere in the world with this firm.

    Cons

    The company can be fragmented at times between its different accounts and divisions. Need more centrally-driven support to locate other JLL people in your region. Can see it as being hard to advance without the right people in your corner. Officer promotions are driven by politics and job function more than talent. Significant focus on Diversity & Inclusion has led some to conclude JLL is "over-correcting" in this manner regarding how much weight this initiative carries during hiring and promotion decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider salary reviews of high value talent before they look elsewhere for salary corrections... tendency is to let people leave because they seek a bump, then spend money on recruiting to bring in somebody at a salary that would have been a satisfactory increase for the person they lost. Why suffer the business disruption to spend more money in the end? Work on the divide between Chicago and the accounts... contracts are negotiated by individuals who won't be around to deliver on their promises. Some clients need a reality check regarding the amount of work that can be expected at the staffing level they are willing to fund.
