    I worked at Marriott Vacation Club full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Provided the optimal environment for me to succeed at the job that I needed.
    Terrific leadership. Gave me the optimal balance that I needed for family and work.

    Cons

    Marriott does lean toward watching out for those who are Catholic versus all other religions. This may seem counter to the ownership of Marriott. The Marriott family are very strong in their religion, LDS (Mormons).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick the right person to perform the jobs at the senior level instead of trying out a less senior person and hope they can accomplish the tasks.

    My last year was 1993. Your drop down does not go that far back.

    Pros

    Company is very focused on ensuring employees are happy. Incredible benefits. One week of dedication to appreciate employees. Various opportunities to learn and grow. Flex hours. Hotel discounts. Management is great. Friendly and Approachable.

    Cons

    Yearly raises are minimal so negotiate salary from the start. Company is frugal in terms of compensating for Team Outings. Very few cons that I can think of. Incredible company to work for if you have the opportunity.

    I worked at Marriott Vacation Club full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The pay is reasonable. Great team environment. There will always be work to do and the team is currently expanding. There are opportunities to move up in the company if you have the desire to seek it.

    Cons

    If working on an hourly position, there are strict rules about working overtime. Or if working on a salary position, there may be a demand to work a little more than a typical 40-hour week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great company to work for. For proper training, please continue to utilize job aides to help new hires in their transition to their role.

    I have been working at Marriott Vacation Club full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Decent insurance, flexible hours, fair bonuses if you are a hard worker, travel discounts, floor level managers care.

    Cons

    No cost of living increase for 14 years, promotion is near impossible, senior level managers don't care or understand. To many systems for so little pay, using upto 8 systems in one call. They expect high level conversations for low level pay. Push push push insurance on eveyone for a better bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You get what you pay for, read the writing on the wall before everyone jumps ship.

    I have been working at Marriott Vacation Club full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very laid back and fun environment to work, no micro managing at all. Nice facility.

    Cons

    Some managers are better than others. No ongoing sales training, or help improving sales when asked. Mostly left to your own devices to sink or swim. Also, disrespectful comments to some subordinates, unprofessional management conduct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be professional, have ongoing training to improve teams performance. DO NOT speak negatively about or to employees in front of other employees, this is not high school.
