    Pros

    It's a supportive company overall - lots of training opportunities to help you grow as a professional and a person. Most weekends off.

    Cons

    Work life balance did not work for me. The sales positions are all hourly and the salaries are based on a 50 hour week. Sales goals are not realistic. They are also very traditional - slow to change and move with modern trends.

    Advice to Management

    The rebranding project needs to happen way faster than it is in order to stay relevant in the market, and in order to be a company that people want to work for.

    Pros

    Great place to work, opportunities in various states and a real family orientated company.

    Cons

    Salaries for lower to mid-level managers could be much better. Some properties have cliques which could be counterproductive to the goals of the organization, which is to provide the customer with the best possible lodging experience.

    Pros

    Know everyone in the office. Solve and fix problems - find alternate solutions. Love Marriott's core values.

    Cons

    Too many time constraints. Graded on everything we do. 50 hour work week. Most are micro-managers.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of GSM. Lighten up on work load or hire more people. Reduce to 40 hours work week.

  6. It's been a fast paced growth experience into the hospitality world-leader.

    Pros

    Great place to learn and develop yourself. Lots of opportunities to work around the world through Global Recruitment option, task force and cross-training.

    Cons

    However, don't expect to be paid a lot - enough to pay the bills though.

    Pros

    It was an excellent experience working for marriott, they taught me the core values of hospitality

    Cons

    they definitely need to update their computer systems/software. Everyone knows it too. I understand the costs are high but one day well have to do it eventually so why not now?

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what you're doing. the JW in DTLA is one of my favorites in the country. I love the employee discounts on rooms

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Get to meet and greet new people on a daily basis. Flexible when requesting time off. Pay is on par with industry in the area. Ability to learn many systems used throughout the hotel. Ability to transfer to other Marriott properties. Uniforms are supplied and cleaned at no charge. One meal, per day worked, is provided for free in the employee cafeteria. Very good medical and dental benefits. Great hotel discounts. After 25 years of service, you get lifetime room discounts. The list of good things just goes on and on...

    Cons

    Not necessarily a Con, hotel is open 24 hours 7 days a week therefore many positions can have varied hours including working on holidays. Some high level corp management decisions are not ideal for all properties and can have a negative impact due to their cookie-cutter mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Local on-site management is doing a wonderful job of maintaining the culture. Keep Marriott corporate from destroying all the wonderful culture the hotel has built itself upon.
