    I have been working at Marriott


    Discounts on hotel rooms.
    Schedule flexibility
    fun atmosphere


    Low pay. Most employees in tipped positions have never gotten a raise so a person with fifteen years experience is worth the same to the company as someone just off the street.
    No room for advancement unless you move. It is very hard to stay in one place and advance. The company required you change locations about every two years in order to climb the corporate ladder.
    incompetent middle management
    little attention paid to feedback. Every year they have this thing called the Associate Opinion Survey. Every year we tell management the same issues and every year nothing changes
    no loyalty. If they need to cut costs, you're gone. They've got to keep management happy
    weak benefits, and expensive
    There is definitely a lord vs. serfs mentality here. The management rules the roost in all aspects of the business and if you get a poor manager you just have to suffer through it. Fortunately, since they require you to move to grow, you only have to suffer for a couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow people to advance without moving
    listen to feedback from front line employees
