    I worked at Marriott full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There is not much to dislike about this company, so long as you understand that it is a business and not everything is going to go in your favor. If you are objective, it is a great place to pursue a career. Many opportunities for advancement, all over the world. Nice travel perks as well, with great room discounts.

    Cons

    Know that there are Marriott franchises (which aren't owned by Marriott), and Marriott owned properties. The franchises don't always play by the same guidelines as corporate. The corporate owned facilities are well run, and maintained. There is a lot of attention paid to payroll, and staffing levels. If you are one who likes to get paid to do nothing, not a great place. Also, I am not a rah rah person, and there are maybe a few too many dollars spent on employee "moral builders". Not saying that that is bad for all. Overall, there aren't many things to not like, especially if you enjoy traveling, and you have to factor that into your wage, as they aren't the highest paying company on the planet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe take a little of the money allocated to employee programs, and increase wages. About all that I can think of.

    I worked at Marriott full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working for the Marriott offers full benefits, staff meals, free courses offered, opportunity for growth, opportunity to transfer locations, great support amongst co-workers and within the company.

    Cons

    Working within a large corporation makes opportunity for change rigid i.e. policies are set in stone with not a whole lot of room for debate, plus must adhere to standards set as a corporation which can overlook circumstances unique to each property.
