    I have been working at Marriott full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. Of course working in operations has less than desirable hours and schedule, but the sales and event planning side offer a much better quality of life

    Cons

    Hours can be long. Old school management see the quantity of hours just as important as the quality of the work... Therefore low performing employees don't get work done and are almost rewarded for it

    Advice to Management

    Learn the difference between quantity and quality. Work towards work life balance for your employees... Or lose them

    Opportunities for relocation and advancement if you are determined and hard working Free meals on lunch breaks Discounts on hotels and services

    Cons

    Long hours/forced overtime to meet certain deadlines High staff turnover (common with all hospitality jobs) Extremely strict policies in some regards

    Advice to Management

    Make some policies a little more lenient Over more incentives based on performance and quality of work
