I have been working at Starwood Vacation
Pros – Starwood has a view of itself as an innovator in the industry, and because of that is an excellent environment for people who like to have the freedom and autonomy to manage in their own style. In addition, they have wonderful employee benefits that rival an company in the industry. What people look for in an employer is a company that can provide opportunity for career advancement, fair compensation, needed benefits, and a pleasant work environment. Starwood does all these things. For these reasons if anyone feels like their company just doesn't provide everything they're looking for one should really take a look at Starwood Vacation Ownership.
Cons – Being that it is a division of Starwood Hotels, there are things that individuals who have worked at private companies might find frustrating at times. These are primarily the corporate shared service departments. They serve a vital role in standardizing the message across the company, but these departments do add time to any process that involves them.
Advice to Senior Management – Try to stay lean, not just in difficult times when pressure to cut is heavy, but also when economic times are good. You will find there's more fat during the good times then there is during the bad.
