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 Management

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.

    Pros

    It's international presence and opportunities for travel Career Growth Friendly Learning & Development opportunities: foreign language, project management, personal finance Associate discount plan The location had great management: positive, engaging, supportive

    Cons

    Extremely low pay for hourly associates and expensive benefits

    Advice to Management

    I think Marriott has the ability to be a global leader in the hotel industry. It should remember that social branding such as being a green company and social responsibility are important to its identity. My advice: Strenghten your brand identity a bit: marketing/branding, community/social giving/social media, innovation (fosse is a dinosaur), reputation for superior customer experience
