    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (more than an 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.

    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.
