    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for career development. Each department collaborates to help the others, so all the operations are as flawless as can be.

    Cons

    Everyone always has their bad days, and not everyone is at 100% at all times. We do our best to keep up the teamwork communication to help out as much as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Our management has been increasing in size and has been consistently getting better. Their ability to think quickly on their feet and to address any issues at hand has greatly helped our operation.

    I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I was working for W hotel, one of Starwoods brands. I really loved working there. Hole atmosphere and warmth of all employees there was great. 401K, food was free and amazing, discounts on all Starwood properties, good benefits.

    Cons

    There is really not that much to say negative about the company.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    The size of the company allows for cost effective healthcare. Starwood truly tries to promote from within. Discounted room rates at other properties in the company are substantial and is available to the Friends and Family of Associates. PTO accumulates quickly and you are given fair oppurtunity to use it.

    Cons

    There is no consistancy of managment from property to property. Certain company policies are followed as seen fit by upper managment. Some people are targeted if they "don't fit in". Diversity is good but not when certain races are protected and others are not. Executives and Line level staff are treated with more respect and consideration than Middle Managers.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a balance of men and women in the properties Management Staff. Stop playing Golf so much and do what is needed to fill our hotel rooms instead.
