    Pros

    Great company to work for. Training and opportunities for growth are great. The company provides strong corporate support and systems to help operate in an efficient manner. Associate policies and handling is great.

    Cons

    Salaries are a bit lower than in general. Implementation of new and inovative ideas are happening slowly and are very controlled. Administrative work is taking a toll on management productivity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more liberty to property management specially in areas outside of the US where the same programs and initiatives might not work as they do in the US

    I have been working at Marriott part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great training resources and online system. Fun and engaging work environment. Awesome travel benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Large company, hospitality hours and pay. Hard to feel like you can contribute to change. Slow days are killer if you want to make money and feel productive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage more with the employees and allow them to contribute to change. Give supervisors more Covell over their departments.
