I have been working at Marriott full-time (less than an year)

Pros

People are nice and knowledgeable. Certain departments permit telecommuting. Health insurance is pretty decent.

Cons

The PTO for new hires is laughable, as you start out with 12 days. Not sure how this company can be rated top by working mother magazine! As a working mother, 12 days are not enough. Then they also decided to get rid of the "Borrow Leave" policy. So you have to use all your prior year leave by June 28, only get 12 days, cannot borrow any leave, thus have no PTO available for when your kids are on summer break. I'll be leaving this company next year. There are better places out there. Marriott had the reputation of being a great employer, but that certainly will fade, as more of the older people retire and new people with the same crappy benefits are hired.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Who wants to be loyal to you, when you provide such horrible benefits? The pay is already below average, at least give people who you demand BA's, MA's, and CPA's from, a decent vacation policy.

    I have been working at Marriott as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance
    Leadership - I've had more positive experiences than negative with supervisors at Marriott
    Benefits
    Work from home opportunities
    Advancement opportunities - if you work hard as a team player and you are in the right department

    Cons

    Reorganization of departments can be stressful
    Technology is behind the times in some departments
    If you have a subpar boss, it can be miserable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they might want to integrate their philosophies with their budget more often. I don't think the budgets support their vision - which I think is sincere coming from many leaders.
