    Pros

    Marriott really cares for there employees. There's a phenomenal career advancement program, great associate discount rate, health, life insurance, just an overall nice place to work.

    Cons

    Hard work/life balance. With hotels being open and operated 24/7/365 you could get a phone call at 3:00 AM asking you to come in. Guest word is law. If a guest says you did something negative, even though you didn't, chances are you'll be disciplined.

    Pros

    Good location. I work with some of the best peolpe in my life. Lots of diversity, you meet people from around the world. Feels like a family. You learn a lot at the job.

    Cons

    No work life balance, very long hours that inmediate supervisors don't appreciate. They should change the policy for relantionships, too much gossip about who is with who. You have no sick days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change some rules, too much gossip, dating and people bringing their personalife to work, including managers.

    Pros

    I love the fact that I was able to learn so much from this company. I could take on as much responsibility as I wanted and I was taught a lot.

    Cons

    I feel as though I wasn't always recognized for the hard work and long hours I put in on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition for those that truly work hard. The ones that typically get any praise are ones that are riding other's coat tails.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    If you value certain employee, ensure that you are in touch or aware about their professional development needs.

    Pros

    Great co-workers, fun work environment, but also high employee standards. If you like customer service you will love working for Marriott.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Terrible, long and sometimes back to back hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TRAIN. Train everyone thoroughly. They don't get enough training and that effects the guest experience and also the employees.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, benefits, promotions. Job is very dynamic, and you always meet good people where you learn from and help you throughout your job.

    Cons

    Like in any hospitality industry, you know when to start working, but due to the nature of business itself, you do not know when to finish

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervisors and managers should have assistants in order not to extend the long hours of work into one employee.
