    I have been working at Marriott full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Money is good, Tips, Overtime, and benefits i.e. dental, No Two Marriotts Are the same, You can make the job as demanding or as non demanding as you want, Great Guests and experiences lead to friendships and connections. Culture is fun and exciting.

    Cons

    If you have bad managers your life will be very difficult, they have so much influence on your duties if they want. Additionally good Coworkers need to be there because you work together bad coworkers = bad property, No two Marriotts are the same, When you have a bad guest it makes life difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should consider when hiring how difficult new team members can be for other employees the front desk needs to work together. Additionally managers need to stand behind their employees

    Pros

    I work with great people from all over the world and employee benefits are great, too.

    Cons

    Most departments in the hotel requires you to be on your feet for at least 8 hours a day. Its definitely not your ordinary 9-5 jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your staff to control their own destiny a little more. Don't focus so much on your hours but on what is needed to satisfy the guests that are in the hotel. Full time employees should get their 40 hours. Other than that keep up the good work...
