    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.
