I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Fast Paced, Great People to work with, Originally driven by making employees key to their success and that's what drove me as a Manager

Cons

Sr. Management driven by #'s and averages and not actual day to day business needs. Especially when it came to the associates.. was constantly told that I was not trusted, and only cared about the reports and #'s and not about the individuals that were working for them.

Advice to Management

Keep the employees needs foremost and the #'s will be made and exceeded

    overall, very strong company, but there has to be more structure to keep employees from aging years before their time. the business does take it out of you hard

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global focus. Product is pretty good however company is "dumbing it down" under new leadership team. Thank goodness for Barry S. handing them great brands and product. They would not get there on their own with current team.

    Cons

    Leadership, a lot of backstabbing, most associates at corporate at pretty disgruntled. Most of the strong talent has already left.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should surround himself with stronger players and admit that he has made some mistakes when it comes to his direct reports.
