    I have been working at Marriott International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working for headquarters is a great opportunity to see the behind the scenes world of hospitality. Their are great health benefits, 401(k), room and other discounts, and always fun things happening around corporate. They also have lots of tools to learn different things online. It's a great place to grow and I know people who have had the opportunity to work in a variety of departments within their career.

    Cons

    There are lots of opportunities in Headquarters, but if you're looking for something in a specific geographic location, it can be a long waiting game. Many people have intense commutes because of this.

    Pros

    At Marriott, there is definitely room for advancement. Supportive management. Work life balance (sales). Training opportunities.

    Cons

    Pay is not great, at all. A lot of positive things employees do go unnoticed, but negative things are always pointed out. Movement within company can take years.
