I worked at Marriott full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Co-workers were a blast to work with. Managers were very reasonable with work/life balance, vacations, etc. Very laid back environment.

Cons

Increased workload due to executives wanting to outsource most IT groups. Some really good workers were driven out of the company as a result.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please be more in touch with your workforce.

    I worked at Marriott full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great co-workers, smart and caring. Decent benefits and discounts at hotels.

    Cons

    Pay was not so great. Long hours sometimes. Management not so responsive - some employee issues were ignored and "swept under the rug"
    The company used to have that family like atmosphere; employees were cared for and allowed to be innovative. The IT division grew so big, server sprawl exploded and the costs spread down to the property owners. This prompted management to take a hard look at cutting costs. The end result was a massive reorganization, outsourcing and laying off hundreds of good people. There's no sense of loyalty any more.
