    Pros

    You are able to work independently. Flexibility with work schedule. Worldwide opportunities.

    Cons

    The Brokers you work for are very high maintenance. Some will not respect you unless you make the same six figures they do. Very demanding with high expectations but salaries do not match the quality of work expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More competitive salary packages, more support for the administrative staff.

    I have been working at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the other financial analysts are smart and motivated. JLL has a big brand name to it and projects can be high visibility.

    Cons

    The Public Institutions CEOs are out-dated and out of touch with attracting and retaining talent. They're messages during the PI Town Hall meetings are feel-good but absolutely do not match what they practice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PI is the worst business unit to be a young, ambitious person in. There is little training, no transparency in promotion/raises/bonuses, and I dont know a single analyst who genuinely likes working in the business unit.

    Good corporate culture, strong benefits and many options for successful work/life balance.

    Business units and staff functions tend to be isolated from each other and do not easily share knowledge.

    Former Employee - Facilities Manager in Denver, CO (US)

    I worked at Jones Lang LaSalle full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The benefits were good, the pay was pretty good. Overall, the job was not worth the pay or the pain I had to go through on a daily basis. All of the turnover created many opportunities, but I'm not sure that was actually a pro.

    Cons

    No training provided, expectations were too high for my tenure there, and the upper management was the worst I have ever seen. Very disorganized in every way! If you are looking for a long-term career, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and actually listen to what your employees are telling you. Provide adequate training before throwing your employees into a bad situation created long ago.
