Pros

Everyone that you work with is very friendly and really wants you to succeed at Marriott. Management is very nurturing and understanding. It's a great place to not only start your career but end it. It is not uncommon for employees to have worked at Marriott for 20+ years.

Cons

Most of the employees are a little bit older - so if you're fresh out of college, it is difficult to make friends at work that you can relate to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work :)

    Marriott is an awesome company to work for, though compensation is all over the board within departments.

    Pros

    Marriott is very supportive of moving up within the company. There is an infinite amount of training and information that is available to all employees who wish to take it upon themselves to learn more about the company, the standards of operation, advancing their career, dealing with personal matters in their lives, etc... The corporate culture is very rich throughout the company and everyone works to keep it in place. Also, the company does a lot of charitable deeds within the community and for it's associates.

    Cons

    The pay structure is not good. If you unknowingly go in too low, you'll quickly be passed up, wage-wise, by new hires with less experience, because once you're in it's a max of an annual increase of 3%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes we need more than the pat on the back reward...Look at the fairness of the pay scale within departments.

    I worked at Marriott

    Pros

    The location is great, the people are nice, the work life balance is fanatastic, and there are tons of opportunities to move around.

    Cons

    Definitely the pay. I always felt underpaid. There are some people in top positions that made it there because they did their previous jobs well, but they should not be leading large departments. Additionally, people are afraid of looking bad so they don't share information. Lastly, the company does not seem to value higher degrees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't reward people (with pay) for doing an excellent job, you will lose them. All the mediocre people will stay and you will end up with an organization like the US government.
