    I worked at Marriott

    Pros

    Steady job, friendly atmosphere, inexpensive gym, good room discount when available.

    Cons

    Extremely consensus-driven, paralysis by committee. Size of company makes intelligent movement difficult. 401k match low compared to other industries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to fix hiring and evaluation processes to quickly identify, acquire, and retain talent and prevent hiring mistakes.

    I worked at Marriott

    Pros

    Development is possible in any area of the business in Cork and globally.
    Amazing team - focus on fit
    Treated as a person not a number, they will get to know you.

    Cons

    Mostly positives. For most it's an entry level position in the reservation sales team so it can be frustrating if you don't get your chance to progress straight away. You do sometimes lack the autonomy to make your own decisions but changes are in process.

    I have been working at Marriott part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent management. Works with the team, rather than solely delegating. Great pay for the position. Great customers.

    Cons

    No career progression or opportunity. A good place for students to work while schooling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being too nice to employees that are clearly taking it for granted.

    I have been working at Marriott

    Pros

    Great experience managing people. You're able to get involved in a lot of different areas and propose ideas, processes, etc. that you feel will have a high impact. Good amount of vacation time. Lots going on within the company so there is a lot of energy and opportunity.

    Cons

    Working in an industry that is always open 24/7 can be challenging and make work/life balance difficult. For management, you sometimes have to work a lot! Also, the work can be somewhat seasonal depending on location, hotel, etc.
