    I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    the obvious: good hotel perks, fun brand to work with, people generally with a great sense of humor the not-so obvious: most people in the stamford office HQs are ambitious, helpful and good-natured people. but even still, they are unhappy with their work lives and stressed out by their co-workers because of a constant need to please the senior managers. senior managers rightfully should have high expectations of their associates, but should equally reward good work with productive feedback and training. the latter is often missing.

    Cons

    - inadequate on-boarding for new hires across the board. you really have to fish for information and learn to seek out resources on your own. - i can only speak anecdotally about my own group and a few others that i've heard about. but while there are proceses in place for "360-type" formal reviews, career development, coaching, etc., i've found that there is not enough emphasis placed on making sure that senior managers actually take the critical feedback provided by their associates and follow-through on making improvements. - commuting is very difficult for nyc residents. if you want to keep nyc talent, you have to work on improving the shuttle schedule / allowing for more work flexibility

    Advice to Management

    make it a real, financially-incentivized (if necessary) part of your "Big 5" goals to develop your people. they will be happier and more productive, and you will see the results in their work.
