    Pros

    recognition, promotion opportunities, perks and good people. I find that Marriott truly takes care of their employees. They like to promote from within and offer many things in their large hotels that are nice (cafeterias, lockers and even dry cleaning). The compensation and job atmosphere is great in my opinion.

    Cons

    There are not many cons but I guess the long hours could be one. It really just ends up becoming a balancing act at times between debating whether the long h9urs is worth all of the overtime hours (more money) you get. I have always found that it is worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote from within and always strive to recognize even the little achievements that your staff makes.

    Pros

    Reputable brand, a lot to learn for entry level receptionist, earn enough experience before moving up to next opportunity.

    Cons

    Different shift schedule, we might not be aware of schedule till last minute

    Advice to Management

    Should go above and beyond to help front desk staff

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, customer-focused company

    Cons

    hospitality hours (you're probably going to work holidays, nights and other times)

    Advice to Management

    Reward and promote those with potential quickly, otherwise you'll lose them.

  8. Not a very good at letting your personality come thru your work.

    Pros

    Great team, good training, kind of repetitive and basic but overall you go in knowing that you are ready.

    Cons

    None too many. The back of the house is kind of weird. The food in the cafeteria was pretty terrible too. I can't complain though, it was super cheap. Like $1 per meal.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees to switch departments sooner, and ease up on the probationary period.

  10. Great company, but like anything, it still needs work.

    Pros

    Great Benefits! Outside the golf industry, there are a variety of brands, locations, and job types to choose from (Hotel side).

    Cons

    Pay is probably level with the competition, but raises are not anything to brag about. Also, promotions don't seem to be tied to performance. Moving up requires moving out, and that's on you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more guidance to potential management candidates. Tighten the disciplinary measures...7 times an employee can be more than 7 minutes late, and they still have a job?

  11. Awesome place!

    Pros

    Great benefits, decent amount of pto. The discounted hotel stays alone make working there worth it. It's a great company with a great vision.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape to cut through to get something fixed/purchased. Working in the banquet department means working LOTS of extra hours, whether you like it or not, but most don't mind because of the $.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your employees well, it's a recipe for success.
