    I worked at Starwood Hotels & Resorts as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an Intern they wasted no time making me feel valued at the company. I was allowed to sit in on huge conference calls and shadow employees in various fields; sustainability, digital marketing, social media, etc. The highlight was presenting a mock advertisement for the Global Homepage to the board of executives! Overall it was a great learning opportunity.

    Cons

    I could have taken on more real-life assignments during the course of the summer. It felt as though they did not fully trust us interns to take on any heavy tasks, even though we were all more than capable.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was great. Very willing to help.

    I can't speak too much to other departments, but my leadership encourages associates and challenges them with new projects beyond standard job roles. Successes are rewarded well. Work-life balance is a priority and 'life' time is respected.

    salaries tend to not be competitive enough for the area

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    No micromanagement; Freedom to be "innovative" in my job; Associates are listened to & employees are asked for honest input on a regular basis (and suggestions to improve DO become reality); extremely supportive Team; jovial and positive coworkers;

    Cons

    Rather impossible to do what must be done in a 40 hour workweek. But the positive energy and recognition received is worth doing the extra hours

    Advice to Management

    My Team is extremely fortunate to have one of the best leaders/directors I have ever worked with in all of my places of employment and am aware that not everyone at Starwood Corporate HQ has this. So as a general rule positive reinforcement works better than criticism. Let employees feel valued and give input/ideas. Continue to tell all of us that we all contribute and are important.
