    Pros

    There are many different environments to work in at this company. If you want to pursue entrepreneur type roles, highly structured corporate positions, work in the field or in an office, they are all available through JLL. The experience of working for JLL is highly dependent on the group you work with. Overall, the benefits seem to be good. They push the active lifestyle. There are opportunities for fun group activities. The company seems to be doing well delivering value for clients and shareholders. Good environment that supports and awards innovation. Depending on the roll, you may have the option to work from home.

    Cons

    Can sometimes feel like High School with various "clicks." While the company continues to grow and seems successful, the message from leadership is not really clear. This could be part of the org structure and there may be stronger vision and leadership in the various verticals. There are over 1600 vice presidents, two dozen CEOs, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the organization structure and titles. Titles mean very little there other than a status symbol.

    Pros

    JLL has the best brokers in the business. CBRE is a great company, not to disparage them, but the legacy Staubach guys at JLL have the best relationships and are without a doubt the gold standard in the business. JLL is like Target, CBRE is like Walmart.

    Cons

    There is too much red tape. Operating as a broker within the boundaries at JLL requires an enormous amount of reporting to management that no one ever looks at. It doesn't have any value and it take away from time you could be spending with clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some, either you are a manager or a broker, when you're playing manager if it's not impacting your own book of business, you make a lot of promises you never fulfill.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Very appreciative of their employees! Lots of opportunities for advancement as well as networking opportunities!

    Cons

    Annmarie England and autumn cleary. If you work in the pittsburgh office, those 2 are the epitome of favoritism. Annmarie wrote me up for being impatient because when i was on the phone i would im an employee with the question (so i would not have to put the person on hold) if they would not respond i would simply ask someone else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really need to stop making power go to your head. Us subordinates may not be as strong brave or smart as you but we still do have a side to the story.
