    Marriott offers great benefits.

    Associate (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ (US)

    ProsGreat benefits, hotel perks are awesome as Marriott hotels are worldwide. Marriott associates are very professional and exceptionally friendly.

    ConsThere was a lack of professional and personal growth in our department. This industry relies heavily on high and low season which makes it difficult to have financial stability during off seasons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you value certain employee, ensure that you are in touch or aware about their professional development needs.
