Marriott International

Courtesy of Marriott International

    The world’s largest hotel company, still in the midst of its integration with Starwood, has preserved its prized culture as it’s scaled. Employees feel that “at Marriott, we are family”—even when there are 136,000-plus of them. They say they feel “treated as individuals and not one large machine” and embrace the company’s commitment to diversity. And, in an era when many companies seem to be falling all over their youngest workers, Marriott showers its longest-serving employees with special perks: veterans of 25 years—who number more than 10,000—get lifetime free stays at Marriott properties (pending availability), even after they leave. Those who’ve been at the company for 50 years—16 at last count—get that too, plus a cash award of $5,000. Read Great Place to Work review here.
