I worked at Oakwood Worldwide

Pros

A lot of genuinely nice people work at Oakwood. Original founder continues with a legacy at the company which gives it character and people care about their jobs and the company.

Cons

Old school, not tech savvy at all, few smart leaders, no innovation or ways to reward employees so they lack quality, intelligent talent. Very political as many people have lifelong careers at the company so it really matters who likes you, not how good the candidates are which is unfortunate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase salaries, find more experienced managers and leaders especially in marketing, flexible work options that are fair and competitive with other industries to attract solid talent. Bring your dog to work days. Etc.

    I have been working at Oakwood Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, amazing associates, travel perks.

    Cons

    Unclear how business decisions are made, very limited communication so you always feel in the dark. Must have "blind trust" to be satisfied and not frustrated. Feels very secretive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow those who do the job daily to provide input on decisions regarding the unintended impacts on the day-to-day operations. Provide more frequent, and detailed communication to associates about upcoming changes.
