Pros

One of the most ethical companies in the world. Period. You'll never have to apologize. The company puts it's associates first. In my twenty two years with Marriott I've found Training, communication, opportunities, loyalty are just some of the elements that make this company so great to work for. In a business world where companies struggle to keep employees, loyal customers and be financially successful, Marriott continues to deliver.

Cons

Some chains pay more. When Marriott people leave because they think the grass is greener, they usually come back. If you are looking for a management job where you want to punch a clock at the end of the day and never think about work until you return. Forget it! It gets in your blood.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Never, ever lose focus on what separates Marriott from it's competitors. It's always about our people and our customers. Everything else will take care of itself.

    Pros

    The ethics of senior management are exceptionally high. In today's corporate culture it is refreshing to never feel like you have to compromise the values taught by mom and dad. The emphasis of the Marriott family on respecting the individual and treating them well so that they treat the guest well is still strong and encouraged by senior management even though the company is now publicly traded and large. The company is very good at allowing associates to find their life/work balance. If you are in hotel operations there is a significant chance to move from brand to brand, state to state, or even country to country.

    Cons

    Depending on your job description, there may be limited room for promotion (this is more true for the "formal" professions). In some departments/divisions, associate opinion surveys are seemingly ignored and the formal review process is not enforced. Because of the tendency to avoid conflict and reach consensus, bad managers linger with little place for the associate to go for resolution. The associate may feel as a complaint would be seen as being disloyal. Associates generally won't take complaints up the chain of command in concern that they will be the one found to be at fault and the action will be detrimental to one's career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get beyond your direct reports to see who the stars are and which associates may have potential. Find out what "line" associates are thinking and actually reward good managers and retrain bad ones.
