    Pros

    Great training, good work-life balance, great benefits. Marriott truly cares about its associates. I would recommend this company to everyone.

    Cons

    Potentially long hours, as with all hospitality jobs, working with the public can have its challenges. High rates of turnover in some positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire appropriately and strategically
