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

Pros

Opportunity to grow if you work hard. Company is flexible if you prove yourself. Large amounts of growth and change going on due to globalization -- this can be both good and bad. This is still a place where you can make a career for yourself and explore a number of different jobs.

Cons

Benefits are good but not great. Some divisions at HQ are very flat and there is little room for promotion within a skill set. Property level associates have more room for advancement, it appears, so long as you are willing to move. This is still a "good ole boys" place to a large degree and senior management can be very conservative.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be agile. Use technology. Allow all associates to have a real voice (and that isn't the Associate Satisfaction Survey).

    Pros

    Medical and retirement Benefits, Family orientated company, Good potential for advancement, Experience, Exposure, Travel opportunities, Good pay, Company employee benefits

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is the management company of the property you may work for. If it is not a corporate location you may be subject to the regulations of the franchise.

    I have been working at Marriott full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great culture, family feel at your property, discount is great and benefits are nice to have. Overall the company is great to work for and at the lower levels the schedule flexibility is great if you are going to school or have another job.

    Cons

    Some disconnects exist between upper management and the rest of us. Don't always feel like you make a real difference. Hotel pay isn't great for a long term career until you make it to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing and inspiring employees but also try to connect with them more since they are your front line.
