    Pros

    Teamwork and great benefits. Good PTO package and great co-workers, make you fill as one big family....

    Cons

    Management is like us and them, micro manager's that are very lazy and not team players, sometimes very young....You can at times work very long hours with out even a break or lunch....Once you are with Marriott for years, you will max out in your hourly rate and not get an annual raise. Most annual raises are 30 cents, and you wont even get that, your wage is frozen at that rate until the market shows it has went up. All pay is market driven and averaged. Poor for your dedicated employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be a team player and practice what you preach to your staff. Everything is number driven and management always looking to better their scores at any price.....At times they get away with rudeness...And do all the AOS surveys really matter, to much time spent there.

    Pros

    Benefits are OK, the best being the amount of leave you receive, but you have to use all leave in the current calendar year (or lose) and that's the bait and switch. Astoundingly, the 401K match is still in effect. Will it last into 2010? Who knows?

    Cons

    IT work @ MI can be a death march. Tons of off-hours work mandated by "rules" concocted by clueless management drones, even more fearful for their miserable jobs than us worker bees.

    Recent economic situation gave IT management the wherewithall to not just cut to the bone, but to sever appendages that will never grow back. So the workload and off-hours work and support just increases and increases.

    The unsaid attitude of management is: "If you don't like it...at least you have a job!!".

    No money for technical training, no money for conferences, no money for professional development on any level, just work, work, work days/nights/weekends.

    Staff layoffs have left IT staffing at a paper-thin level so be ready whenever, where ever, to drop what your doing and respond to the disaster du jour.

    In case you haven't guessed by now, work/life balance here totally sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Well, the first words of advice would be to junk the entire IT management team and start over with a sprinkling of managers who have experience at other companies and are under age 60 so they have a chance to relate, on whatever pathetic level, to staff that by and large are under 40 years of age.

    If IT management thinks they are going to take Marriott to a "global" footing after decimating the staffing levels - well we'll see. When the economy improves and IT staff start a mass exodus to companies that aren't 7x24 hell-holes, the folly of Marriott's short-sighted IT staffing strategy will put them once again, behind the technology eight ball for many years to come.
