Advice to ManagementAdvice

You say you hire people for their potential and talent, but you do not give them the opportunity to use that potential or talent, because you micromanage so hard. You also need to listen to the people who are on the phone every day, because they are more knowledgeable about what is going on with the customers than you are.

    I have been working at Starwood Vacation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great health & vacation benefits, higher than average salaries, lots of resorts and hotels to choose from for discounted travel. Advancement potential for some positions

    Cons

    Very political, "Good old boy network”, work/ life balance can be challenging. The company has way too many meetings making it hard to actually get any work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should look at people’s performance not at who they are friends with. Senior team needs to provide more leadership, less management by consensus.
