    I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts

    Pros

    Best reasons- flexible scheduling allowed me to balance home/work life priorities.

    Cons

    Worst reasons- on the job training is horrible. Existing employees are not willing to help as much, assuming the new hire should already know what to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always listen to the employee's side of the story. Never just take the word of the hotel guest. If possible, seek third party perspective. Doing so is fair to everyone involved when issues arise.

  2.  

    Good company if you like hotels and if you want to get your foot in the door of the hotel industry.

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good advancement opportunities, and I just plain like the work.

    Cons

    Sometimes they're too "idea" and "brand" motivated...which wouldn't in itself be a bad thing, but this "brand vision" is constantly changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
