I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- The brands are so well positioned with exciting and unique programs that support the hotels.
- Creative and bright people who love working at Starwood.
- Chances to work with a lot of different people in different areas of the company.
- Discounts on hotels!

Cons

- The office atmosphere can be a little stiff and quiet.
- It takes a long time to get things done - typical large corporation red tape.
- The office is too hierarchical- things happen in a set way.

Advice to Management

No complaints- good comp and benefits, enough time off, and who can argue with summer Fridays?

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great training especially if you move around the different brands and especially if you are in Operations. Decent opportunities for promotions from within but you must be open to relocation. Corporate office in Stamford can feel too removed sometimes.

    Cons

    Very difficult to achieve all components of incentive program if you are in sales. You will hit one or two of 5 components but rare to hit all. If you do, they will just make it more difficult next year.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that we are a hospitality company and happy associates = happy guests. Try to think about that before you think about your investor shareholder price.
