I worked at Marriott Vacations Worldwide full-time

Pros

If you want to sit around and do nothing then maybe this is the place for you.

Cons

Where can I begin? Bureaucracy with technology adoption. They tell software developers that the legal department will not allow them to use Notepad++, Apache Tomcat for local development or any other item of software not on their approved list. Legal won't allow migration from Cruise Control to Jenkins. The project planning is horrendous. They will overwork you for several months on a project that is dumped on you with a ridiculous schedule. Once the project is done you will sit around and do nothing for months to years. During this time they will lie to you and tell you that there are tons of projects. It is also worth noting that they are trying to outsource or layoff the entire IT department. If you get a contract opportunity or job at MVWC then your job security will hang in the balance indefinitely. Don't ask the senior leadership about your job security because they will only get annoyed that you inconvenienced them with your question. If you write Java code, then hold your nose because the birds nest that you will try to maintain will be atrocious. If you try to promote your code fix be prepared for all kinds of obstacles that make no sense.

Advice to Management

Listen to constructive criticism from your employees. Management refuses to accept any blame or responsibilities. Go get training in technology because you obviously have none. Stop promoting incompetent people. Stop allowing loud mouth "software architects" who can't write documentation to run everyone out of your company.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Medical Benefits were the best

    Cons

    Management played favorites. They let teenagers run the show while they hid in there offices. A real "you gotta be in the club" kinda place. If you didn't fit in, they got rid of you. They disliked older (older that 30 yr old) workers.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up. The teenagers didn't really care about there job.

    Pros

    Great company overall with great growth opportunity and amazing discounts on other hotels. The management is terrific and very encouraging for interns to stay with and grow within the company.

    Cons

    The internship program was in its first year of being restructured when I participated in it. The provided housing was stuffing four interns in a Residence Inn room and charging us out of our paychecks for that "provided housing".

    Advice to Management

    Once the internship program gets a solid foundation and finds a way to provide housing for interns at its resorts then it will be the Marriott Level of quality that one would expect.
