    I have been working at Marriott Vacations Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Great group of associates who care deeply about the product. Work environment is stress-free and well-balanced. Health insurance is expensive. It ranges from $150-$190 per month for employee-only coverage and can be as high as $680 per month if you add your spouse. The salary is competitive which allows you to accept some of the cons.

    Cons

    I entered this company as a mid-career professional with 15+ years of experience, but that means nothing here. Most top-level VPs, directors and Senior Managers had to climb the ladder. Some started in house-keeping or as front desk associates ,which is great for them, but why hire external professional when any promotions or growth will always be granted to the associate with the most seniority. Upper-level VPs are mostly older white men who has been with the company for 20+ years.

    Advice to Management

    Recruit more externally so that fresh ideas and procedure can be introduced at the corporate level. Some of the areas of opportunities is not anything new, that other organizations have not faced. Diversity comes in all forms, not just gender, race, and nationality. It also comes in the form of professional experience.

    Pros

    Although there’s a twenty word minimum, one word sums it up - structure. MVW has clearly defined processes and procedures, so if monotony is your thing then MVW is the perfect fit.

    Cons

    No company is perfect because it is made up of humans and humans need perpetual affirmation that they’re doing a good job. MVW’s upper management primarily consists of the most brilliant insecure business professionals I’ve ever worked with. Ego stroking is a daily need and those who are the best ego strokers move to the front of the promotion line no matter their qualifications (or lack there of).

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to say “no” to cheerleaders trying to promote mindless dolts with a pretty smile who don’t understand, nor want to understand, the vacation ownership industry.

    And advice to the managed: diligent, accurate work will only get you ten more years in a cubicle if you’re reporting to a spineless manager who is more concerned about their own advancement than their team’s.
