JLL was the project management consultant for the Bhuvaneshwar Development Authority. We were a team of three representatives from JLL at the BDA office. My role encompassed daily interaction with the departmental heads of Finance, Electrical and Civil Engineering, Chief Engineers, MD (BDA). Every month we had to present the milestones achieved to the BDA executive committee, and accordingly payment of JLL would be approved. Our performance was often affected by the incessant out-of-scope requisitions from BDA officials. The biggest challenge for us was to keep up with recurring requisitions from BDA while striving to achieve the targets of JLL.
I realised my strong interpersonal and time management skill would be most effective in such situation. While scheduling timelines, we would always keep some extra time for unforeseen modifications or requirements such that we would be well prepared to achieve the targets within deadline. Often there were conflicts in opinion among the different departments and this would be directed to our team to conceive a solution. I have always been recognized as a patient and heedful listener. I would painstakingly note their individual requirements and concerns and only after developing a comprehensive perception about the issue, I would suggest the solutions.
At the end of my six months tenure, we had been successful in achieving all the targets within time and budget for JLL.
My Co-workers (JLL representatives) were very passionat

JLL is one of the best platforms to learn Real Estate Transactions like other International Property Consulting firms. The company has a lot of reach among the corporate clients and has a great name.
Remuneration in the company is uneven / unsatisfactory as there are issues in paying a higher fixed component and the company focuses mainly on paying incentives/bonuses. While searching for jobs outside the firm, no one offered a hike on Fixed + Variable.
There is job security as it is a stable company and the work pressure is not much, it gives you time to settle down properly and perform.
Job culture is satisfactory given that you know how to manage people. The company gives enough work/life balance to its employees.
Overall, a nice place to start a Real Estate Career.

Prodcutive and exciting job. Great place to meet different people
A typical day at Jones Lang Lasalle starts early in the morning. Since its a consulting job, you are expected to reach client site before client arrives. After you reach office, there generally is a review meeting to assess the progress of the work. This generally depends on the type of client you are dealing with.
Then all through the day, you hold several meetings with different stakeholders to assess their requirements, if the project is being delivered as per thier needs and if their needs to be any changes whatsoever.
Typically, for me the day ended at around 8 in the evening. So, you really have to put in a lot of work.
Totaly Client Dominated Company, No space for a person if u do not have good links in higher management
HR totally depend blindfold on your reporting manger & client.
Company is only good for there own payroll employees (sitting at there office) & worst for client based employees spicily if u do not have links before joining (with higher management or client)
Pay...depends on clients budget
no personal life, work & work, if u have good luck along with buttering abilities u will successful
Over all totally client dominated company. no one listens the concerns of juniors (JR manager, Officer, executives)
ProsIf Client is Good Then everything is great for you
ConsNot good management, moreover the promotion is zero for non engineering dept

Navigating the chain of authority can be challenging.
The worst hiring experience in my life. In my hiring interview with the hiring agency and in consideration of that position, I made clear that I had two other very nice offers on the table from other employers. I made it a point to negotiate my shift and work location to insure the best fit for me.
On board training was chaotic and disorganized at best. Stereotypical Passive/Aggressive management style. They like to corner you in front of others to make you stand out as uncooperative. After a few weeks, management was already hinting that they preferred to have me on a night shift. This was not consistent with my negotiation and did not consider that agreement. A few weeks later, management began expressing a desire to have me "float" between other facilities in the city. Once again, this was a contradiction to our negotiation and hiring agreement. In my defense, I never said I would not cooperate. I only expressed the reason I accepted their offer after our negotiation. Two days later my contract was terminated without just cause. No questions. No discussion. I got this phone call from my JLL supervisor that my contract was terminated because "I was not making myself available".

ProsAmazon provides a nice clean place to work., Good break room and often bring in food for special events and holidays.
ConsDisfunctional management within JLL, Lack of direction and leadership, Numerous examples of unprofessional behavior, Improper comments and language, Lack of sincerity and honesty.
JLL is a really good company to work for, at the surface, but beneath it all it is riddled with workplace politics and you are not rewarded for doing good work, you get more benefits if you are good at handling workplace politics.
It is the case in many places, but JLL it becomes apparent after working there for about 4 months. The managers have backdoor conversations about their employees with HR, so even when you have an issue, the managers have already talked about it behind your back, and usually leadership takes a biased position even before you get a chance to address your grievances.
For example, there is a policy that someone has to be in a certain position for a certain amount of time before moving up, but I've seen someone start off in an introductory position and end up in a senior position (3 levels up) in about a year. This means that if you are a people person you are more likely to move up, and management & HR will overwrite policy if they like you. On the other hand, if you are really good at your job, you have an amazing track record, you fill out your work orders way better than everyone else, but you had a disagreement with a coworker they liked, you will definitely not get ahead. I've seen many talented individuals come and go because of this workplace drama.
The greatest part of the job is that it's a really good company to work for. They have an amazing vision, they are a leading company in the industry, and a great place to get experience working for a

JLL is a large company made up of smaller accounts. Each account is different. Each account is almost as if it is its own small company.
Accounts are all ran differently based on the clients needs. Some accounts are easier than others. Some are smaller. Some have more moving parts than others. The main goal is to provide the best possible service for each account and maintain a good woring relationship.
The account I worked on was a very large - national account. But even within the very large account, our division only had a few of the properties to manage and care for. Within those few properties there was a mix of large and small properties. Some required more hands on than others.
Some of the constancy for each property include, office functions: answering phones, mail, maintain and order supplies. Maintained vendor contract files and on site human resource files: attendance control logs, tracked personal time off and reported to corporate office.
I got to prepared, verified, and submitted payroll to corporate office for payment, prepared and submitted expense reports to corporate office. I also provide administrative assistance; create files, memos, vendor and client letters, as well as work order request.
A big part of my daily duties included manage vendor relations: scheduled repairs, acted as liaisons between the client facilities and vendors such as cleaning crews, uniform vendors, first aid and vending suppliers.

Current managers make this a hostile and frustrating place to work.
JLL took over for our unions contract with a big client midway through 2019.The client fired our old company because they weren't satisfied with the services that were being provided.So JLL goes and hires EVERY single person from management of the old company and offers them basically their same positions with a new shirt.JLL promised our client things that our beyond our ability.They completely butchered our union contract and have people doing other tradesman's scope of work on a daily basis.They lie when we order parts and ask about the status of the parts and say they are on the way.With no parts, little to no maintenance work can be completed.Were forced to lie on a regular basis and take credit for preventative maintenance work orders being done when none of the work our client is under the impression is being done, isn't. They make us use micromanagement software to track our work throughout the day and even worse start and stop a timer on every single thing we do throughout the day, including walking between the buildings.The majority of the management team is friends and family of each other stemming from the old management company.If they want to fire you or get rid of you they will play dirty to give you write ups.Little is expected of the union laborers and managers that are related to our highest managers.More is expected out of the people that are scared to be put under fire for NOT doing what they're told.I can't wait until the ship sinks and everyone can see t
Do not take a job here as a call center agent. The pay is horrible however they expect you to constantly exceed expectations. You will be written up for everything, including absences with a doctor's note, needing to leave for personal emergencies, etc. You are allotted 5 minutes a day to use the restroom outside your scheduled breaks, so if you are older, pregnant, or use the restroom frequently, be prepared to be written up a lot. You will be written up if you are 1 second late from your break/lunch.
Oh and be prepared to train people every 4-6 weeks who will be making more money than you, even if they are temps and you are JLL, no matter how many years you have been there. If you are a temp and training people 4-12 weeks after you started, they will make more money than you. Of course if you discuss this you will be let go immediately. There is a VERY high turnover rate because people either get tired of it very quickly or get released/terminated. You can be terminated at the drop of a hat, everybody is constantly afraid that they are next because they cut people loose at an alarming rate.
Also, prepare to not advance even if you trained your supervisors years ago and know more than all the other agents combined, because you are an asset to the team as a ~rock~ and not a rocket. If you are a temp be prepared to work all holidays except for Christmas and Thanksgiving without holiday pay, although I guess that's more up to your temp agency.

Lack of Efficient Onboarding Made for a Stressful Year of Employment
When I was hired, I thought I landed my dream job. However, I should have started to notice the red flags sooner because looking back, I realized that there was no real onboarding system. I was told to sit next to one of the outgoing employees and just do what she did. I never even knew who the HR rep for our office was. I was also told that the hours were "casual because we're all adults" by one supervisor and then told by another that I needed to be onsite from 8:30 to 5:30, otherwise it would put the rest of the team (people who barely spoke to me) behind. As far as day-to-day efficiencies go, there were too many systems and processes you needed to go through just to get one task done. The line of communication was too long, meaning my work had to be approved by the team admin and all of the brokers on the project before the actual client even saw it. Most of the time, projects sat on deck for weeks or months at a time before decisions were made either by the client or brokers. There was always a sense of "hurry up and wait". While I found some of the meetings necessary, most were a waste of time. I worked closely with the team admin and sat next to her, but if there was ever an issue, it was brought up to my supervisor and sat on until the next scheduled performance review (possibly months later) and then brought to my attention. As a creative professional, being chained to my desk with no clear design direction because the brokers used phrases like "make it pop" or "mak
Charade- obviously false, although represented as true:
If you have ever had a Real job at a Real company, DO NOT GO TO JLL. If you have any talent and common sense don't be fooled by this charade.
This is a temporary job At Best for inexperienced people to test the limits of what you can tolerate. Incompetent management, inadequate tools, parts, and training.
The environment is demoralizing by the constant turnover of employees terminated immediately for the slightest infraction and managers walking out the door.
New employees start optimistically but become disillusioned quickly when they witness the daily chaos. High pressure, no tools, no parts, and almost weekly firings of your coworkers.
New managers go through the same process of disbelief at the dysfunction.
Constant walking carrying tools. Walk from 6 -12 miles a day.
Long, relentless 10-12 hour shifts under constant pressure to repair things as quickly as possible all while:
You have to walk a ½ mile to get parts, fill out paper work and record everything on the computer, answer the radio, and the cell phone.
Endless checklists (to blame you) and forms to fill out on work orders.
Everything that you say or do will be held against you.
You do not sit down. You almost never get a 30 minute lunch which you will not get paid for.
No training, only online videos that you sign off on so that any liability is shifted to You.
1001 Rules you can be fired for and More rules added each week.
Witness the hardest workers get fired or quit while nothing is said to
I was a temporary Admin. Assit. for JLL in Febdruary of 2018 within the North Bethesda Corporate office and fell in love with the office, the staff and the culture. Once that temp. assignment was over I was granted a full time position a year later! I was ecstatic! Throughout that year I gained experience in property mgmt. etc. as a temp with office team and applied for the property management assistant role at JLL. I spoke with an HR specialist and was granted that position. The official hiring process took about 3 weeks but I felt it would all be worth it... Fast forward I am given my address to my job and the pay looks great! I arrive and am greeted at the HSBC headquarters but am being trained and welcomed as the receptionist of the office... I spoke with a few HR admin and was THEN told that I needed more experience before I could take on an property ASSISSTANT role... I was very frustrated but stayed in my position hoping to "gain" more "experience" and be bumped up into the career I intended to be in... I was completely blind sided and felt as if I was just thrown into this position because it was available. The HR did not understand my frustrations and I feel as though whenever I expressed that I most definitely was not being challenged enough or doing anything at the office for that matter, no one really heard me or took my feelings or skills into consideration. I stuck it out for 3 months and although the office staff was very lovely I did not feel like I made an
