    I worked at Marriott

    Pros

    Marriott really seems to care about it's employees. Managers were great to work with and for the most part they were open to hearing your suggestions.

    Cons

    Obviously every location is different. In some places the work environment was better than others but over all Marriott is a good place to work.

    I have been working at Marriott

    Pros

    Great experience managing people. You're able to get involved in a lot of different areas and propose ideas, processes, etc. that you feel will have a high impact. Good amount of vacation time. Lots going on within the company so there is a lot of energy and opportunity.

    Cons

    Working in an industry that is always open 24/7 can be challenging and make work/life balance difficult. For management, you sometimes have to work a lot! Also, the work can be somewhat seasonal depending on location, hotel, etc.

    Pros

    Hmm... I can't speak for all management but I know my managers are pretty good.
    Meet a lot of people
    Bonuses per quarter

    Cons

    Can be harder to get off, holidays. We run 365 24/7 but somebody has to do it.
    With any customer service jobs you have ignorance and rude customers on occasion
