I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There are good benefits and its a very large company so there is almost an unlimited amount of growth available to you to take advantage of some career opportunities

Cons

There is still limits as to high you can go such as is true with any Job or Career you chose to work to build others dreams and not your own. To make it high in the company would take a long time.

    Benefits, Decent pay, ability to transfer to other properties, quality staff.

    Short or no breaks, hotel hours, non consistent schedule, no parking, horrible back office/ employee break room.

    Advice to Management

    As always, put money into employees, including employee areas. It would help with the enjoyment of work.

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employee rates at hotels; ease in moving from one hotel or brand to another; great work culture; innovative products; employee-led initiatives; employee feedback regularly solicited; great sense of (global) community

    Cons

    Large size occasionally means slow to move; salaries are not the most competitive; when times are tight, expect drastic operational budget cuts (in lieu of lay-offs, granted); mediocre time off benefits; those promoted to management do not always receive adequate leadership training; 'promotion from within' usually only applies to lower-paying positions

    Advice to Management

    The message often gets lost in the middle. And sometimes doing more with less just burns out the less.
