Jones Lang LaSalle Construction S.F. questionable leadership/organization
PDS (Current Employee) – San Francisco – 19 January 2013
The construction division in S.F. is new to the West Coast, established 1 year ago. It is a West coast branch of other construction divisions that have been in operation and controlled for many years by corporate headquaters on the East Coast. West coast appears to be suffering from a difference in industry standards of operation between East Coast and West. East corporate policies seem to be limiting the ability of the West conductng business equal to other privately owned construction companies. Leadership and organization within the S.F. division is questionable. Regular staff meetings are not established and no action agenda seems to be in place. There appears to be no apparent direction to establish a cohesive plan as a group, employees and intergration to best serve Jones Lang LaSalle. The image of the division is a leadership hiarchy more dedicated to maintaining position status and personal interset as their priority. Field performance is marginal but as observed, performance is directly related to work load and lack of support.
Technician (Former Employee) – Canada – 29 November 2017
If your looking for a career and you have ethics this is not for you. Salary and benefits are ok and if you like working with people then it could be good if it wasn't for management. Although all the talk from management is about quality of service to the client that's where it ends. The reality is they don't want employee,s that are capable and have the abilty to use their own initiative to do the best they can for the client. There is no mutual respect or trust ,often information is incorrect and feed back ignored. Typically you end up doing your best for the client in-spite of the shockingly poor management in certain Canadian programs. The only good part was working with great clients and piers.
