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

Pros

Great benefits package, great discounts on hotel rooms, excellent training programs and networking opportunities, opportunity to transfer and avdvance to management.

Cons

Hard to make decent money at some of the suburban locations, and at some locations the hourly associates made more than management.

Advice to Management

Take into consideration the pay scales for management vs hourly associates. While the associates work hard and in most cases deserve the compensation they earn, in many cases that discourages them from moving into management, as well as creating a sense of entitlement among the associates, and that spreads like a cancer. On that topic, in many cases lower level and mid-level management also end up doing the jobs of the associates, as they may not have as much pride in their work, and mgmt ends up finishing the work for them.

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

    Pros

    Benefits: They have a slew of really great benefits, but the benefit that takes the cake is the employee health insurance. Most employee health insurances have huge deductibles; they have a 90/10 plan with a surprisingly small deductible. I was very impressed with their employee health insurance offering.
    Great working environment: pretty much liked and enjoyed the company of every employee I ever met at this location, not just my own department
    Good employee food: The employee menu is absolutely fantastic.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Ability to transfer to any job or company location in the world.

    Cons

    Very large company, so chain of command is counterproductive and redundant in key area's.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication among staff of every level...
