    Pros

    Money can be good if you want to lie

    Cons

    Sales are based on falsehoods and play acting that something is wrong with account. Don't ever expect to sleep well at night or have a personal life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most managers are in this position because they don't know how to sell anything.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Hmmm....if you are a recent university grad in the age bracket of 22 yrs. through possibly 39 years, you MIGHT stand a chance of possibly be employed by the Wyndham Worldwide organization. BUT, if you are a MATURE applicant, never mind, they will definitely pass you over - might be too expensive to hire (health care benefits, etc.) Never mind that the MATURE applicant is able to "run rings" around the 20 somethings, able to rise at 5:30 a.m. each weekday morning, arrive on time at the position at Wyndham Vacation Resort and be a VERY VALUABLE asset and team member of the organization!! Well poo on Wyndham.

    Cons

    The management staff at Wyndham Vacation Resort, Oceanside, CA, all senior staff in the age range of say, 22 yrs. to 39 yrs. are DEAD SET AGAINST employing any MATURE APPLICANT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You Executive Management personnel of Wyndham Worldwide - really should "get your heads in a better position" - for the MATURE APPLICANTS at your various facilities, would only INHANCE your organization - but, what the heck, you have no use for we MATURE APPLICANTS!!!

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Money, money, money! If you get in at a high salary and that's all you want.

    Cons

    Like the other reviews this place is TOXIC! I was paid very well and had a great bonus. I also averaged more than 60 hrs a week working on salary. Our managers were a combination of petty, stupid, mean tempered, foul mouthed, self serving, glory grabbers or resigned to keeping their big pay check and ignoring the low life peers they worked with behaved. Plus when you work in the far flung offices you get to hear about the incredible gala holiday party you can't attend in NJ. Don't worry you get holiday doughnuts instead. Wyndham is a collection of purchased companies and some offices/locations are doing better that others. Still HR has crafted a technique to get the "Best Employer" rating by carefully weeding our bad internal surveys and showcasing staff that are sucking up to mgmt. Example, my anonymous survey required my department code/my manager's name and my office location (in US) otherwise I was anonymous. So guess how many honest surveys you get?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. Nothing is going to change here, well it can get even worse.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers were great, benefits were very good, work-life balance was alright

    Cons

    Upper management are bullies. Typical corporate BS environment, even though they would like you to believe otherwise. I feel traumatized from working here. It was good for a while, and then it was just terrible. As an employee at Wyndham Worldwide, I feel that I spent so much time putting in hard work that was just completely wasted, and nobody cares about that. Working there was depressing and stressful. I felt underappreciated, my management did not support me at all. Because of that, it created a situation where I did not care about my work anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to the needs of your "lower-level" employees! They are hurting at the expense of senior management.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Salary. Good Name Recognition for Resume. Dry Cleaning, GYM and other amenities at Corporate HQ.

    Cons

    Unethical Leadership, No work/life balance. Any example of Work/Life balance and/or Diversity is only for show and not an integral part of the culture. Incompetent leadership especially in HR. Executive Leadership is morally corrupt and are more about towing the line than developing a corporate culture that would reflect a world-class organization. Wyndham Corporate and the Hotel Business are led by people with extreme egos, greediness and incompetence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and start over.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The majority of the employees, non-management, were top of the line, educated and wonderful people to work with. All, according to published job requirements, were overqualified, both in education and previous experience. Most were college graduates. We worked for Wyndham because we wanted to make it the best it could be and because we cared. It was usually a fun environment.

    Cons

    Employees were recognized for accomplishments in staff meetings, with words from management, but never with an increase in benefits, perks or salary. Promotions were given randomly to and usually came from outside the department. I applied for every job that came open , was promised interviews but never interviewed. I finally applied for and accepted a position in another department making a dollar more per hour and was given the assignment of pressure washing all the buildings. At 60 years old, it nearly broke me but I did it and did it well without complaint. The resort passed it's yearly quality assurance inspection for the first time in it's history. According to the resort manager, one of the main reasons for passing inspection was due to my efforts. Shortly after that I was fired for working overtime without permission,. Later I discovered their time clock system rounded up the minutes thus showing overtime on one day and no overtime on another day, with both days recording the same number of minutes worked! I told management I had not worked overtime without permission but wasn't believed as the clocked showed I had. I was devastated that my honesty and character were questioned by a company I gave so much to and believed in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees and promote those who deserve it. Be fair. Listen to workers and support them with the tools to do the job. Tap into the strengths of each employee. Read each employees resume to see where they may be promoted or better fit the company.Recognize and reward with more than words. Believe in your employees and trust them to get the job done.
