Overall Marriott is a good place to work. There isn't much of a work life balance if you are in management but I think that is the case for most hospitality jobs. There is plenty of room for advancement especially if you are willing to relocate. They match 401k and offer decent benefits. I feel like most management is underpaid based on the amount of hours you work but they do have a nice culture.
Pros
Free lunch, 401k matching, benefits
Cons
No work life balance

I worked in various management positions ranging from operations to sales and thoroughly enjoyed my time working for Marriott. The support from my managers was invaluable. I was always asked about my career goals and encouraged on a daily basis. The workload was heavy most of the time, but that is to be expected on the operations side of the hospitality industry.
Pros
Vacation time, health benefits, employee hotel discounts, family environment
Cons
Long work days, as a manager expected to be on call.

Poor organization 0 opportunities to grow They hired people with 0 experience And that makes the job worse Because the pay is not good enough the have to hire the first person who applies And everything is about who is your friend

Benefits is good there but pay a lot of money to have the insurance. So people working by hourly cannot pay the insurance. Marriott is everywhere so convenient for everybody.

I woked at Austin Marriott North. It was a very interesting experience. It was my first time ever not working in Banquets or Restaurants. I was a front desk supervisor. They really gave me an opportunity to really learn and test my ability to manage a team and still maintain exception guest service. It was a very humbling experience and it gave me new respect for what the front of house does. I moved from that position to an Assistant Banquet Manager position, which I was far more in my element. The hotel was very understanding that I was always wanting to move to the banquet team and when the opportunity arose, they really supported me.

This company cares about its associates. They value their hard work. If you get a chance to work for a Marriott take it and you will see what a company that cares about you should be like.

It was ok but hire the wrong people to manage and they show favoritism. I had to report them to equal employment opportunity. I loved it in the beginning.

Just another big corporation thats only concerned about the numbers. Employees are nothing more then away to achieve the numbers. The only time they act concern about anything is when they think they are going to be sued. I have spent almost 40 years in the hotel business and regardless if its Hilton or Marriott or what ever ,the attitude and mentality is the same. I would never advise my children to ever work for such a heartless and stressful environment in the hotel business.
Pros
Free lunch, good benefits, 401k
Cons
Long hours, no set schedules, lots of stress, No balance with life and work.

Do not expect advancement or fair treatment if your are a minority. I have worked here for years, and have been in the same positions as when I started. I have watched numerous managers come and go like a revolving door.
