I worked at Marriott full-time for more than a year

Pros

Flexible hours, Provided free lunch, occasional pizza or food parties for lunch, good with time off. overall decent people. Very professional, and not a lot of fighting with upper management.

Cons

Fighting between departments, when business was slow hours were cut drastically, (even full time got as low as one day of work a week during the slow season) Low protection of employees from sexual harrassment from guests. I was told that the guest was a vip so not to make too much of a fuss about it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Protect your employees better.

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

    Pros

    There are opportunities to work remote part time. Most of the people are good to work with. Decent benefits, but, those are being cut back. Nice discounts on hotel rooms, when they're available.

    Cons

    Outsourcing has destroyed moral. Sr management is not in touch with employees below them. The company is now being run by finance managers, from the CEO down. It's all about the bottom line and wall street. Cutting benefits, rising costs to associates. They've lost the family core value management they used to advocate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You think outsourcing will make your IT systems more agile and quicker to market. You will soon learn the opposite. Things will get bogged down in red tape between vendors and all the in house knowledge will be gone. Contractors who know nothing about Marriott will be building systems that will be mediocre at best and cause more problems for the end user business community. By the time you figure out your mistake, it will be a long road back.
