Pros

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

Cons

In 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 Management

Deliver 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.

    Pros

    Their Associate Development Program is great for employees that want to branch out of their departments, which could lead you down a more satisfying career path. Also, there's an employee program for discounted hotel rates for friends and family.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, there could be a lot "turn-around" with associates. This means you're understaffed and overworked. Also, depending if your hotel in union or not, it's hard to find an ideal schedule, because you're ranked by seniority.

    Advice to Management

    It's been a great company to work for, and the benefits are amazing. I've come a long way since my early days of work. It's a pleasant change to work in such a professional environment.
