I have been working at Marriott International full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Working for this company has shared a number of great attributes from company sponsored outings, leniency for associates needing time off, and a sense of nurturing for those eager to grow.

Cons

The pay just isn't there. Only way it appears to gain the a higher salary is to know friends who work within specific departments, transfer around different departments or acquire tenure status; basically working for a very long time.

Advice to Management

Motivation is key to driving a team to proceed toward their highest achievements. As soon as you, the superior/leader, appear to lose focus of the goals for the team then its obvious for associates to sense that. If management were to weed out the "lazy" folks, maybe some of us actual HARD-WORKERS can finally catch a break.
