    I worked at Marriott International full-time

    Pros

    Good if u want to travel and work in different countries

    Favoritism and very political. They want you to follow their guidelines when it suits them or when it helps walk employees out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Get a life and learn to look for talent not for people who cry to get what they want
