    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good career opportunities if you are patient.

    Cons

    Average work environment, no investment in training, poor pay, almost always understaffed as no one stays around for long when the competition offers the better packages. The merger with Marriott is slow and frustrating, things seem to take even longer than before. Very little communication and 'people first' was certainly not the case for many Starwood-legacy team members who had to leave whilst the Marriott guys sit comfortably in their chairs. Base lined salaries? Probably never happening.
