Thread regarding Marriott layoffs

Very uncertain time

Corp execs offered little clarity to us in terms of prospects. Marriott is a good company but suffers from too much bureaucracy, which is especially fatal during crisis. It is way too hierarchical to be agile and nimble.

Everyone is in the dark until today, which is somewhat unfair. We are the people who do grunt work everyday.

I feel like Marriott has too many "talkers" who focus on initiating meetings rather than doers. Too bad, CEO is a really good person but I can't say the same for many Sr Dir and VPs who pushed their teams to limits to please stakeholders.

i also agree with you they should communicate better at least

I agree with you.

Marriott was good to me and my family. I raised three children on Marriott's salary - we had good benefits.

Now, as you say, HR and Corporate bureaucracy is not good - it's always slow and they are very careful about what they say - they often give you double meaning statements and are not very clear.

We need more clarity now as many people are simply in shock and they are facing massive hardships.

God bless.
