Pros

Marriott has wonderful benefits, as well as wonderful room for advancement. They have very competitive salary bases and they offer a great work environment.

Cons

There was a lot of competition for positions and it was a very political network. Those were the biggest cons.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is a great company to work for. Although the opportunities for management are few and far between, if you lucky enough to find an opportunity, I would suggest taking it. You will not regret it.

    Great company to work for but local management can make or break a person's experience of working for Marriott.

    Pros

    Great benefits and opportunity for advancement within Marriott International. Marriott International is a terrific company to work for provided local management is in keeping with the "Spirit" and "Ideals" of the company with respect to employee relations.

    Cons

    Experience at this particular Marriott was exasperating. Local management would often balance the budget on the backs of the night audit staff. Often only one night auditor for hotel with 325 rooms and no night supervisor.

    Recent change to pay everyone the same in a local area for the same job with only adjustments based on length of time in the job. No longer any acknowledgement excellence and personal achievement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In additional to annual survey of employee satisfaction, I would recommend that the corporate would conduct telephone interviews with randomly selected employees with their identities remaining anonymous and not divulged to local hotel management. This would give the corporate offices a good idea if the experience of employees corresponds to employee survey results and what action may be required to improve local employee relations. Based on my experience many employees are not candid on the surveys even though the results are blind and not attributed to a particular employee, because of fear of local management response to negative rating of their experience.
