I have been working at Marriott full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Marriott part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I work with the best staff. My boss has a wonderful way of hiring the right people. We are a small hotel and we are like a family. We are all team players and wear many hats for the betterment of the hotel and our guests.

    Love the perks!

    Cons

    I wish the pay was higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get an updated system. Still on FOSSE (dos)
