    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, beautiful headquarters building in Parsippany, NJ, Leadership is getting better. IT folks can work from home when the weather is bad, flexible working hours if needed.

    Cons

    Promotions are political. Layoffs happen to cut expenses. Several rounds of layoffs happened in late 2014 and early 2015. At times, folks are motivated by abusive treatment rather than accepting that mistakes do happen and can be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on generating revenue versus cutting expenses to make the financial numbers look good. Institute a mentor program in the company to reduce the reliance on promotions for political reasons.

    Pros

    A great place to work. Friendly people. Nice culture. Mostly laid-back atmosphere. Good work-life balance. Flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Career growth prospects may seem high but getting an actual promotion is challenging. Doesn't seem to matter how much work you do or how high quality work you do, unless you are constantly visible to management on various things, very hard to get a promotion.

    Pros

    Work hard to increase employee satisfaction. Lots of training opportunities and funding for MBA etc. Work life balance very nice.

    Cons

    Toxic politics. Leadership changes every 2-3 years. Strategic direction constantly changes, lack of focus on current objectives

    Advice to Management

    Employees realize that a reorg is coming every January, people collect their bonus in Feb and move on, until this is addressed, Wyndham will continue to lose good people

    Pros

    Great company with good pay and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Most management has been built on favoritism. These managers won't leave company because they know they would never make it elsewhere. FL employment is "at will" so if you rub management wrong way be prepared to have a difficult stay while they nitpick and build up a case to get rid of you or just make you so miserable you leave.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees not against them. Stop the favoritism and don't harass your employees.
