    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Starwood hotels has a great track record and as their tagline says, "You don't just stay here, you belong" I kind of felt the same way about working there.

    Cons

    When working for any franchise (as I did) possibility for exponential growth can be kind of limited. From what I hear, when working for a corporate owned and operated hotel, there are many more opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Starwood hotels and resorts worldwide does an amazing job on branding not only their hotel brands, but they do an even better job on branding the culture, the teams, and the leadership that fit into each one of them.
