Very Poor. Arrogant Vancouver and Ontario Managers Offer No Training
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 15 October 2018
I worked for JLL as a PM on a temporary basis a couple years ago. The experience was terrible. The managers are very arrogant and unprofessional both in Vancouver and Ontario. A lot of travel and expenses required for simple projects. JLL management systems are overly complex and unnessessary for very simple projects. They get by on their very flashy marketing websites to get contracts. They do not have the expertise in house capable of doing any jobs and outsource absolutely everything. A lot of politics locally. Abosolutely no long term future working with this company. Very big disappointment to have worked for JLL.
Building Operator (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 July 2018
Upper management out of touch with frontline employees. To our clients we are the face, voice,eyes and ears of JLL. I can easily communicate with all levels of clientele. Communication is only one way within JLL.
Great people at the level we work at.
No rewards for good work. The worst employee get the same raise has the best.

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.
Senior Facility Manager (Current Employee) – Richmond, BC – 5 November 2017
JLL is an excellent company to work for as a world leader in the Facility Management industry. I would love to stay with JLL in another capacity and with less of a commute or even working from home. I need a change in my current position as I have been with this client organization for 35 years both as a member of the client organization and 4 years as an outsourced Senior Facility Manager with JLL.
Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 22 June 2017
This was a new field for me and it was a great learning environment. It was a smaller office which was nice because I was able to have more of a one on one relationship with my co-workers. I was in school at the time and they were very flexible with my school schedule.

FM (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 October 2016
JLL has a great staff, but the management is third-rate. It's not unknown for them to be dishonest with employees, promising one thing and delivering another. Management is very disorganized and wants to pinch every penny to the detriment of staff.
Work loads are huge and there is no help on that front. I found out that my role had been covered by 2 people previously and you are expected to work as many hours as you need to in accomplishing senior management goals. The timeline for deliverables is too short, resulting in stressful deadlines and staff stretched to the limit. There is no work-life balance.
The colleagues at my level were a great group, but I suspect that many are there having nowhere else to go until the economy strengthens, at which time they'll leave the ship.
Tools to help accomplish the tasks are inadequate. Computers are 5 years old and software programs are numerous. There's no intention of developing a comprehensive software suite.
