    Current Employee - Manager In Training in Chicago, IL (US)

    I have been working at Marriott full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits
    Company truly cares about employees, evident in the large number of employees that have been with the company their whole lives

    Cons

    No nights off, no weekends off. Requesting these kinds of things even occasionally for personal events are seen as very poor leadership skills by upper management. Trying to stay in one discipline and move up as a manager is frowned upon but if you change disciplines you often have to step down as a leader and then build yourself back up in that discipline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on work/life balance for middle management.
