    I have been working at Marriott full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great Staff through out the whole Hotel. Great holidays and good teamwork. It is great to learn that senior management take an interest in the day to day operations.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of difficult processes to be overcome. Salary is not amazing. You can not always get what you want, the bigger picture must be realized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep communicating, keep checking, keep training and keep up on the positive work :)

    I have been working at Marriott full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible rota, free parking, nice uniform, staff rate discounts, nice people around to work with

    Cons

    No opportunities for experienced, promotions only for who knows whom, drag & drop promotions, senior management oblivious to staff needs, cheeky methods to spy employees, rules applied on as and when basis, procedures change when GM & Dir Ops change , HR practically un functional

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read employee performance reviews ESP HR director, know employees personally, take personal interest in their development, there are other people around rather than graduates and the ones close to your hearts, don't change rules to suit your management style but follow Marriott handbook, improve staff food, give experienced employees opportunity to excel, stop spying on staff and managers, treat all customers equally and not on personal terms, race, origin,

    I worked at Marriott full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    very good training, nice team, fast progress within the hotel, possibilities of transfering even between the different brands (JW Marriott, Ritz, etc)

    Cons

    less salary, less benefits (the staff rates for hotels are to high), transfer between hotels is more difficult than they tell you while starting,
