Anyone ever exit or consider an exit to Marriott? There’s a Sr Director position I “qualify” for (6 years of experience, masters, etc), any insight as to why the requirements are so low for the level?

Well first of all, titles are different from one company to another. At one place a Sr Director might be defined as a 10 year veteran while at another it's 5 years of experience. At banks for example, a VP has 5-8 years of experience while VP at hospitality is more like 10-15. Second, hospitality salaries are on average lower than other industries but you get good benefits. Is the role analytics related? Their salaries aren't a match for what other companies pay for senior experienced data and analytics talent in the area (especially after Amazon's HQ2 news) so they try to compensate by hiring younger people and growing them in the company.

I was offered a job there once and was shocked at how low the pay was - the offer I received was lower than my current salary at the time and even lower than when I had worked at a not-for-profit. The hospitality industry is known for not paying well. Certainly don’t let this one experience deter you, but it’s something you should be aware of.

Yeah, Glassdoor equates a Sr. Director to around 150-200k total comp, which is pretty low, but 6 years of experience to me is closer to a manager/senior manager, are their titles just weird? It’s just odd so far ever since I looked into it

Low end of Comp and years of experience line up with Manager. Higher end of comp lines up with Exp Manager or new Sr Manager

So my parents moved to Seoul in June and are now basically begging me to go too. I work for the USDA currently and there isn’t an opportunity to transfer in my current position or work remotely, so I’m looking at other companies that have ties to both countries. My parents are both retired and have no input, and they just want me there because my sister enlisted this month and they want at least one of us near them. So I’m here to ask if anyone has any leads on companies I could look into?

How do you approach asking senior managers/directors/partners about writing recommendation letters? I'm applying to law school in the fall and I need some. For what it's worth I'm a second year staff at a mid-size firm, have had good reviews the entire time/known as a high-performer in my office, and I've worked directly with everybody I'm planning on asking. However, none of them know that I'm planning on applying.
