I worked at Marriott full-time for 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

    Benefits: They have a slew of really great benefits, but the benefit that takes the cake is the employee health insurance. Most employee health insurances have huge deductibles; they have a 90/10 plan with a surprisingly small deductible. I was very impressed with their employee health insurance offering.
    Great working environment: pretty much liked and enjoyed the company of every employee I ever met at this location, not just my own department
    Good employee food: The employee menu is absolutely fantastic.
    Hotel-stay discounts

    Cons
