    I worked at Marriott full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The company had great people to work with, a good benefits package, flexible scheduling, and competitive pay scales, as well as being conveniently located.

    Cons

    All that being said, it was still a job in the Food and Beverage/Hospitality industry, with long stretches of repetitious tasks punctuated by periods of great stress.

    I have been working at Marriott full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very positive people. They tell you that it will feel like a big family and it is. $1 meal plan is excellent and well worth it. They are really easy to work with when you need time off. The management is excellent and very personable. Would not trade them for the world.

    Cons

    Compensation is ok, makes it difficult to actually make money when you have bills to pay each month that equal more than one of your paychecks. Plenty of downtime. Especially during the holidays when business is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. As long as you stay positive and personable things will keep going smoothly.

    Pros

    Marriott is currently very focused on being first in the industry in many areas. This is fostering innovation and a new way of thinking about how it serves customers. This includes focusing more on marketing and how to engage consumers.

    Cons

    In its effort to position itself for change, many departments are being reorganized. Staff are unclear as to the rationale behind some changes. Unfortunately, this results in valuable employees leaving the company.
