    Pros

    Pay & benefits - work hard and you are rewarded. Good training programs. If you work for Starwood, the experience you get will prepare you for anything, as the expectations are huge.

    Cons

    work life balance - no life balance. expectation is to be available 24/7. Nicknamed Starwood Hotels & REPORTS - too many to complete and be aware of. Expectation is to be everwhere at all times - meet guests, ensure guests are happy, at same time complete reports, take courses for personal development, complete reports, know what is going on everywhere at all times! Oh yeah, and try to have a personal life where hotel issues do not creep in.

    I have been working at Starwood Hotels & Resorts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flat hierarchy -- you could talk to the C-Suite or close to it. Autonomy with accountability, not micro-management. Everyone had a lets figure this out and make it work attitude (little to no arrogant egomaniacs). Recognition for promotions. Work/life balance. Better pay than most companies (leaving was hard for many)

    Cons

    Driving on 95 to get to Stamford CT
