    It depends

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBetter than average benefits, great discounts, opportunities to transfer,
    Word of advice: avoid smaller properties (Courtyard, Residence Inn) unless you want to be on a shorter track to GM as you will end up with more work and less pay

    ConsTransfer process is not good. If an associate has a good review, there current manager should not be required to give a reference as I have had managers at different properties basically screw me over so that I would be stuck with them. Also managers should be more receptive to employees trying to transfer from different departments.
    The tuition reimbursement program is great except for the fact that you have to jump through flaming hoops.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider associates that would like to transfer from other departments. Current associates should be given first priority or at least an interview for openings.

    Great Company...too much reorganization

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSpirit to serve is a way of life, not just a motto. Great culture, management and brands. Associates truly care about the work they do. Flexible work arrangements are a huge plus.

    ConsFor the past several years there has been constant reorganization, continue to be asked to do more with less. Difficult to advance or transfer to other departments.

    Marriott is a great place to work.

    Telecommunications Technician (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsMarriott is a great company to work for. Terrific people to work with in the different departments and also able to learn new skills in other departments with a great opportunity to advance in the company.

    Conswhile rewarding work it is also challenging to do your job with so many employees and guest of the hotel that you have to maneuver around in order to complete your work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate with employees more to let them know the path of the company and the changes that are going on with the company.
