I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Hospitality! Great brands! Field organization can be very rewarding.

Cons

Current leadership team is in sustain mode taking advantage of the strong talent before them. Marketing team lacks leadership. Personalization, blah, blah, blah. The innovation left this company when Barry departed. Starwood became Marriott under the current leadership team rather than differentiating and building upon it's heritage, unique brands. Infighting among top SVP level associates weighs heavily on their teams. Director level executives become the sacrificial lambs. So many unhappy people in Stamford...

Advice to Management

Keep telling yourself Starwood is "innovative"

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great company, especially once you've been with them longer than 1 year. Decent benefits package, 401K, health etc. Nothing too much to complain about. company definitely encourages internal promotions, training and advancement. In fact, I would say most of the time this is preferred rather than hiring outside employees.

    Cons

    Hospitality is rough; long hours, working holidays, overtime every week, weekends, overnights.

    Advice to Management

    Good job
