    I worked at Marriott

    Pros

    Work culture, Brand Name, Market leader

    Cons

    Phathetic management one will ever encounter, No sense of belongingness or connectivity with staff.... huuuuuuge gap between Senior level management and lower level...
    The only thing bad about Marriott (Gurgaon) is Management... Change dis and it will become Heaven to work !!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when one lot can earn upto lacs of bucks i see no reason to give penny's to the other lot who is actually working their ass off !!! This is only for Courtyard By Marriott Gurgaon.. rest Marriott is i believe is fantastic.... Pay scale is very low... nothing that a graduate expects... And the Voyagers that is Management Trainees are incompetent which is a sad case for the future as they will be the future Management

    I worked at Marriott

    Pros

    You are not contained to just one department. Being a small hotel, if any other department is busy, you can always offer help and the best is, people do it on their own. The GM is extremely creative in his work, thinks out of the box, very friendly with staff, and always has time to listen to you. This hotel works like a family. Job satisfaction is extremely high.

    They even offer home drop services to employees, and the other usual Marriott benefits like discounts.

    Cons

    - Needs to increase salary base

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just keep it up. Need to make constant upgrades.
