    Pros

    The people and atmosphere is great. Management, benefits and pay was great.

    Cons

    Corporate companies are hard to work for, constant annoying changes and sometimes the change makes the situation worse. One ex : Restaurant employees now have to wait 2 weeks for a check so all the CC tips can automatically be taxed. Servers and bartenders are in the industry to have their tips that day not 2 weeks later

    Advice to Management

    The guest are important not your meal coming out on time, just for you to close it out to an account. Do more for the employees. Doubletree was a smaller hotel and had bonus, rewards and free trips for each employee but with Marriott you had to win it in a drawing

    Pros

    Getting hook ups to almost any type of event in the city.

    Cons

    The management sucks. The asst general manager is the only one who actually deserves her job.

    Advice to Management

    The gm should figure out a way to provide free breakfast, coffee, and parking so that the guests are happy versus blaming her staff. Also she should stop hiring friends and hire people who are actually able to lead a team in a positive, firm, and fair manner.

    Pros

    Create and design foods, benefits,

    Cons

    Raises not based on performance, you get a raise when everyone else gets a raise based on the going rate. Things get brushed under the rug, people have no drive to do the best they can.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to make associates enjoy working there

    Pros

    It's nice atmosphere, great people to work with, it is very easy to move up after being there for six months or longer. Great management, especially in the restaurants(there are three).

    Cons

    It is like high school sometimes, with the amount of drama that goes on but that goes with most businesses.

    One can acquire excellent benefits.

    Cons

    The long hours are crucial. Also, the employees do most of the work. Plus, it is difficult to get a transfer.

    Managers should work more alongside with their employees than in meetings.
