    I worked at Marriott International full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Marriott has a strong culture and good values overall.

    Cons

    As a select service General Manager you are a glorified laborer. The labor situation in our country is such that companies that pay hourly laborers $12.00 per hour can't hire and retain employees so the hotels are constantly understaffed. This leads to management team performing the duties of hourly employees all too often. It also leads to poor customer satisfaction and poor working conditions.

    Advice to Management

    Pay workers a decent living salary. One bedroom apartment in Denver merto is now around $1000 per month, food about $400/month, fuel/transportation $200, utilities $300...Denver, like most major metro cities is becoming unlivable.
