    I worked at Marriott full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong culture, clear strategic targets, management team are supportive trying to improve the company's talent management. Benefits offered to employees can be graded with a 3 out of 5.

    Cons

    Not enough trainings offered to line employees. Due to high turnover 70% of management are not qualified for their position. The transition period to managerial role is too short for them.
