    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide

    Pros

    Fast paced and energized atmosphere. Typically average less than thirty hour work week, potential to earn three figures based on your own performance and not others. (sales) Other divisions of the company get my thumbs up, the company gives back tremendously to communities and those in need.

    Cons

    If you want to make ends meet, you have to be willing to hard sell at all times. There is no room for compassion or a tailored fit sale. You can sell clean, you just wont earn big commission. Draw based salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New employee training should be more straight forward. Training for Real Estate Commission reasons is based on honesty and integrity. Three quarters of the actual sale is unlike the training, it isn't for everyone and you wouldn't have the extensive turn over rate it people knew what they were getting into.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, nice customers. Big rooms for banquets and a decent pool. Can't really say anything else about it.

    Cons

    Understaffed, dirty rooms, old decor, uncaring management, never had enough imenities for guests, just unwilling to change and keep up in competing hotels in the area.

    Good firm. But layoffs are a constant.

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Decent pay and a annual bonus is a near certainty.

    Cons

    If they like you, you will be promoted in 6 months. If not, you will sit in the same role for 5, 10 or more years.

    Recurrent layoffs in every business unit are a reality in order to ensure Wyndham stays profitable. While their stock has gone up every quarter, the work/life balance is getting worse as more people are expected to fill in for roles that are being eliminated and won’t be replaced.

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

    Pros

    Nice building and gym. Looks very modern and well kept. CEO very nice.

    Cons

    Pay is below average for location so talented employees not attracted to company. When we do go on board smoke and mirrors fade fast. Many companies in the area that can pay and treat employees better so jumping ship is easy. Favoritism is a barrier to advancenent. Loyalty should be to the company and not cronies. The people that stay are not the best or have the highest credentials. Leadership is the same. After a while it feels as if you are there because you can't find anything better which is a little embarrassing. HR is very unresponsive and don't seem to have a clue about anything which makes working there very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean your management and HR house. Get people who "get it" and can "do it" to represent the company. The company is great but the middle management needs to go.

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

    Pros

    This is a worldwide company with many opportunities and many many good work associates. The company has extensive on-line training resources. They seek to grow and to do well in "Great Places to Work". I also think they are wisely positioning for the future - investing in technology and systems.

    Cons

    Be aware that their "Wyntegrity" line is their system for heading off litigation. There is no real interest in integrity beyond maintaining appearances.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walk the talk guys. "Speed of Trust" etc... Make it real. Not just window dressing.

    Pros

    Great opputunity to make money. Great atmosphere and people to surround yourself with, which may or maynot be the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Draw pay. Horrible balance of work and life. Not many ways laterally to move with the company. Tourist that come in can be hard to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more.

    Pros

    The only pros is talking to a variety of people from all over the world as well as the company parties.

    Cons

    Get everything on paper. I got "timeshared". My manager said I was going to be making 5,000 to 14,000 a month. First thought was wow, I'll do it. Reality is that you get placed in the most terrible of locations with the already established marketers get the prime locations. They play favorites, so just stand your ground. Make sure you read the handbook, its very contradictive if you you are apparently do something wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing the favorites game and actually value you employees opinion. And learn the definition of insubordination before you fire someone for answering a question.

    The company is ok. Great Benefit but long hours at times

    Pros

    Good benefits, good insurance and hotel discounts if the room has not been booked by customers. People are nice. Flex time is good. The managers try to make the environment better but it does not work all the times.

    Cons

    Long hours at times and hard for working mom. No training on the job make it harder. Pay increase is minimal unless your manger likes you.
