I have been working at Marriott full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working for this company has shared a number of great attributes from company sponsored outings, leniency for associates needing time off, and a sense of nurturing for those eager to grow.

Cons

The pay just isn't there. Only way it appears to gain the a higher salary is to know friends who work within specific departments, transfer around different departments or acquire tenure status; basically working for a very long time.

Advice to Management

Motivation is key to driving a team to proceed toward their highest achievements. As soon as you, the superior/leader, appear to lose focus of the goals for the team then its obvious for associates to sense that. If management were to weed out the "lazy" folks, maybe some of us actual HARD-WORKERS can finally catch a break.

    I have been working at Marriott full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great travel benefits. The people I've encountered have been genuinely passionate about what they do everyday and it reflects both in their approach to work as well as their everyday lives outside of the hotel.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities unless you're willing to relocate every couple of years. Senior leadership tends to get comfortable once they land in a desirable location, so you have to constantly move where the next level of opportunities are (domestically or internationally). Relocating every couple of years is not a viable option for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Allowing multiple department heads to remain in the same hotel, running the same department for 20+ years is not conducive to the type of innovation and creative thinking that is going to foster and create the next generation of leadership.


  2. Great Company as a whole, be careful of the individual property you choose to work for.
