    Former Employee - Director of Sales and Marketing in London, England

    I worked at Marriott full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They look after you, and are very fair. I worked there, left and went back again. They're a true team orientated company who expect results.

    Cons

    You do need to play the "marriott corporate" game, and "fit in". If you don't, you won't last long. The culture is that of working together and making it happen which is good, so if you're not a team player, personable and make an effort, you won't survive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work the system.

    Do the reports accordingly and on time and you'll do fine!

    Pros

    Sterching over 3,000 properties and over half a million rooms spread throughout 70 countries around the globe, Marriott is one of the world's largest hotel management specialist. Marriott pocesses moderately-priced chains like Courtyard and Fairfield to the esteemed luxury of Ritz-Carlton, Marriott's broad portfolio of brands has something for every traveler. However, the firm specializes primarily in attracting business groups. Unlike many rivals, who are facing heavy capital expenditures to overhaul their properties and re-energize their brands, Marriott has already infused its hotels with fresh bedding and high-thread-count sheets. And many rooms have also been outfitted with high-definition TVs and the latest in connectivity technology for travelers with iPods and laptops.

    Cons

    nothing much but still some usual guest comments regarding housing ,lodging and food issues which could be tolerated by offering some other valuable facilities and services to the guest in terms of "in house "service to compensate the araised complaints

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    highy skilled professionally lead management where advice is not necessary but their expertise in the hospitality industry leads the role according to the situation demands

    I worked at Marriott

    Pros

    Fair treatment, great trainings on a monthly basis, cross training possibilities, respectful colleagues. Their recruitment is on a high level, it is not easy to get in.

    Cons

    Probably the salary could be better, and sometimes you have to wait long years to get promoted as it is not easy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The salary could be better as the wages of food and beverage associates mostly depends on the occupancy and you can do nothing about it.

    Pros

    Managers and supervisors went out of their way to see that I was learning and treated me with respect.

    Cons

    I'm not too familiar with job advancement at the Marriott but it seems that it is difficult to get promoted and some of the associates work very hard for what they are paid while the upper management seems to get great benefits.
