The happiness varies widely by department, good luck switching though

Strategy and Business Development (Current Employee)
Stamford, CT

ProsBig company with prestige, lots of innovation going on, great brands to work with.

ConsIn my particular department (and many others, but not all) there is no work/life balance, corporate offices are cold, most people are concerned more with covering their own butt than doing the right thing, too top heavy on senior high paid leaders.

Advice to Senior ManagementDeliver on promises of things like "talent review," offer competitive benefits (CIGNA laughed at me when I told them my plan was with Starwood), remove ineffective leaders, develop and maintain career progression plans.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
