    Pros-Excellent corporate structure
    -Unrivaled training program
    -Tons of opportunity for movement upward
    -Competitive pay, not the best in the industry but certainly fair
    -Strong company culture, make sure you're a managed hotel and not a franchised property!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be so slow to make a change or take a calculated risk, but keep doing what you're doing because the company is doing well!

    I have been with the company for 6 years and plan on becoming a Marriott Lifer! Love the company!

    Event Planning and Banquet Manager (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsThe Marriott is a great opportunity to develop in the hospitality industry. The company is very open to growth from within and there are such a wide range of departments to learn about.

    ConsSometimes it is all about who you know, rather than your efforts from the ground up. But this is the case with any company and though it can be frustrating at times, it just makes me more determined to earn my way up. :)

    Advice to Senior ManagementI have worked at some hotels with strong leadership and some with weaker or less focused on the goal leadership. I think the number one priority of the company is satisfying the guest and creating guest loyalty. Being the leading brand in the hospitality industry, we already have the profit, now we need to work on the repeat customer!
