I worked at Marriott full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There is not much to dislike about this company, so long as you understand that it is a business and not everything is going to go in your favor. If you are objective, it is a great place to pursue a career. Many opportunities for advancement, all over the world. Nice travel perks as well, with great room discounts.

Cons

Know that there are Marriott franchises (which aren't owned by Marriott), and Marriott owned properties. The franchises don't always play by the same guidelines as corporate. The corporate owned facilities are well run, and maintained. There is a lot of attention paid to payroll, and staffing levels. If you are one who likes to get paid to do nothing, not a great place. Also, I am not a rah rah person, and there are maybe a few too many dollars spent on employee "moral builders". Not saying that that is bad for all. Overall, there aren't many things to not like, especially if you enjoy traveling, and you have to factor that into your wage, as they aren't the highest paying company on the planet.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe take a little of the money allocated to employee programs, and increase wages. About all that I can think of.

    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 (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.
