    I worked at Renaissance Hotels full-time

    Pros

    My co-workers were great, and I got along with them very well. The work was also not particularly difficult. The company offered incentives for those who received a positive review on TripAdvisor.

    Cons

    Lots of "Monday Morning Quarterbacking" from the management. Lack of communication from other departments. Rules were oftentimes enforced in an arbitrary manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider improving communication with other departments. Consider implementing clear, written policies and procedures that are followed by all associates and are uniformly enforced.

    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

    Former Employee - Front Office Manager in Montgomery, AL

    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.
