I have been working at Marriott full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Overall, good place. Most management is pretty decent.

Cons

New CIO is planning to outsource most of IT... so morale is in the toilet if you work in that area. Very difficult to advance unless you change roles. If you meet IRS' definition of HCE 401K contributions limited to 4-5%.

    I have been working at Marriott full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very busy - always, with good opportunity to get exposure to cross-functional areas. Employees are supportive (not competitive) and helpful - always willing to give advice and opinions. Long-tenured staff and highly networked with each other. Diverse. Good travel bene's. Good place to work when raising a family.

    Cons

    Slow to change and reluctance of sr leaders to make decisions. Very narrow definition of what successful people look like - creativity not always valued. Growth opportunities slow down greatly after Director level. Dilution of empl benefits in the last 5 years. Major emphasis on growth at the expense of guest/customer satisfaction. Not enough investment in modernizing legacy systems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You've abandoned the balanced score-card (employees, guests, owners, investors) favoring owner profit above all - even abandoning customer satisfaction. Yournew HR policies are damaging what used to be a very healthy corporate culture.
