Former Employee – worked at Marriott full-time for less than a year
Pros – Upper management is friendly to all employees, great global reputation. They give empowerment to even the lower level employees to correct customer service failures.
Cons – Limited career growth. I took an entry level position as my first full time job after graduating college with a hospitality management degree. After 10 months at my position I started applying to some open positions that were just a step above what my current position was and I got passed over each time for someone who didn't have a degree but had been working at the hotel for 5+ years. I understand the value of experience but I don't have 5 years to waste making barely above minimum wage. So I switched to another company and after 4 months I was promoted and now make twice what I made at Marriott.
Advice to Senior Management – Give more chances to the young motivated people, maybe you'd be surprised at what they can do.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
