    I have been working at Marriott full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Marriott is a name which is associated with very high standards and expectations. The benefit package which the company offers for the employees is good. Good to have this name in your CV.

    Cons

    Salaries are low. Too many decisions are taken on a regional and higher management level and their mandatory implementation leads to inadequate results. Due to the low salaries many good line managers go to other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a real investment in your employees. Increase the salary on a loyalty and performance basis. "The window of opportunities" and all these "brilliant ideas" is pure waste of money, time and energy and everybody I know agrees with that.

    Great for resume, nice perks, opportunity to advance

    I have been working at Marriott full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The senior management here is very approachable. Department managers treat their teams like family members. Benefits are affordable and they provide a broad range of options to choose from. Scheduling is flexible and you have the ability to trade schedules with other associates. Unlimited overtime with incentives (gas cards, extra $ per hour, drawings for prizes) ect...during peak season.

    Cons

    Shared workspaces...not really a con, but you never want to risk getting sick from another co-worker.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!! It's working :-)
