    I worked at Marriott International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company - Marriott company values present at most hotels - great training opportunities - great benefits.

    Cons

    Depends on Leadership at specific hotel. Has become more about the almighty dollar and not the associates. Could be more mentorship for middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the long term associates who made the company what it is today. Don't forget about the relationship building and rapport that long term associates have been able to forge over the years to create repeat, loyal customers.

    I worked at Marriott International full-time

    Pros

    Discounted travel at hotels all around the world. Exciting work with dynamic people. Ability to work in multiple facets of the business under one umbrella.

    Cons

    Long hours no matter what the position and in general the hotel industry pays poorly. Hard work gets you promoted but it is often because the turnover is so high you get thrust-ed into duty.

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice to really give, the business is what it is. I recommend everyone work for a big box hotel like Marriott because at least you have the discounted travel perks at many hotels.

    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.

    I worked at Marriott International as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome summer experience working for Marriott in their Sales Management Internship program. It was very beneficial to learn about how sales are conducted at Marriott and an awesome learning experience for sales management. We were able to meet employees in all different fields of the company and was an amazing resume booster.

    Cons

    Cant really say there was any cons to the internship. Overall, it was a great experience and the people there are fun to work with.

    Advice to Management

    The management there was very organized and efficient. I do not know what additional advice I could offer.
