    If you love the type of work you do, which is working with the public then you have no need to worry about flaws of the actual place you work in.

    Pros

    Working for the company itself as apart of Marriott is very rewarding and exciting.

    Cons

    The saying goes every job location will be challenging because of immature people, favoritism and manager inability to make the right changes.

    Pros

    the pros are great benefits, great food, and awesome events and groups that come through

    Cons

    The biggest con is management, some managers do not care about the staff and walk all over them. If you are hard working they take advantage of you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to communicate more with staff and actually try and make them happy

    I worked at Renaissance Hotels full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The location, It's a Marriott Property, New Property, Offers great amenities, pay is higher than other hotels in area, opportunities for advancement (if somebody quits, gets fired, transfers). Training is good

    Cons

    The franchise is only on Alabama makes it difficult to transfer to other properties out of state. The state employees always stating "we/I pay your salary), benefits are expensive. Favoritism shown and "rules broken" for certain people but not all (6 months in current position before allowed to transfer to another position...), company also had a few EEOC claims filed against them. You literally have to wait until somebody gets fired/quits/ transfers positions/ or try to apply for an internal position to be posted before its taken down the next day in order to "advance". Try to keep electronic/written documentation, it will come in handy when you "get in trouble". Like many hotels hours are deeply cut during slow season (from 40+ hours to 10-15 hours).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retired systems of Alabama...you would think the cost for benefits would be cheaper. Training program is good because it is provided by Marriott. GReat company to work for if you never plan on leaving Alabama.

    I worked at Renaissance Hotels full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally, they provided good opportunities for growth and skill-building, They also provided good benefits, and have flexible scheduling . They're good about promoting from within the company, and allowing people to train and work in other properties.

    Cons

    Your work schedule is highly dependent on the kind of hotel you work for, especially if you're hourly. This may mean you'll have to work every holiday, even after you have seniority, or that you won't have any work because skeletal crews only need a handful of people. The leadership and work environment is highly variable from property to property.

    Pros

    They put their employees first. Great benefits and they care not only about your work life but your personal life. They listen to suggestions and you take an annual employee satisfaction survey. I felt appreciated and valued. Marriott founded the company based on the idea that "if you take care of the employees, the employees will take care of the guests and the guests will come back" what other companies do you know put their employees before the guests?

    Cons

    Better communication amongst management. Sometimes there was too much cross communication or repetitiveness because they don't communicate.
