I worked at Marriott International full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There is not much to dislike about this company, so long as you understand that it is a business and not everything is going to go in your favor. If you are objective, it is a great place to pursue a career. Many opportunities for advancement, all over the world. Nice travel perks as well, with great room discounts.

Cons

Know that there are Marriott franchises (which aren't owned by Marriott), and Marriott owned properties. The franchises don't always play by the same guidelines as corporate. The corporate owned facilities are well run, and maintained. There is a lot of attention paid to payroll, and staffing levels. If you are one who likes to get paid to do nothing, not a great place. Also, I am not a rah rah person, and there are maybe a few too many dollars spent on employee "moral builders". Not saying that that is bad for all. Overall, there aren't many things to not like, especially if you enjoy traveling, and you have to factor that into your wage, as they aren't the highest paying company on the planet.

Advice to Management

Maybe take a little of the money allocated to employee programs, and increase wages. About all that I can think of.

    Pros

    If you are able to start in a management in training program with a corporate owned Marriott, you should do well. Stay away from franchise owned property management programs.

    Cons

    Your success is at the grace of the local market trend. At times it can be robust, at times depressing. There tends to not be much attrition on upper level management.

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow if you work hard. Company is flexible if you prove yourself. Large amounts of growth and change going on due to globalization -- this can be both good and bad. This is still a place where you can make a career for yourself and explore a number of different jobs.

    Cons

    Benefits are good but not great. Some divisions at HQ are very flat and there is little room for promotion within a skill set. Property level associates have more room for advancement, it appears, so long as you are willing to move. This is still a "good ole boys" place to a large degree and senior management can be very conservative.

    Advice to Management

    Be agile. Use technology. Allow all associates to have a real voice (and that isn't the Associate Satisfaction Survey).
