    Pros

    positive atmosphere, good benefits, promotion opportunities. I've worked through several jobs in 6 years and have learned more and more. Stable company with consistent growth and opportunity for advancement if you work hard.

    Cons

    there are very few. it's timeshare and that has a stigma to it, some people just automatically think it's shady. Overall I love it here.

    I have been working at Wyndham Vacation full-time

    Pros

    Amazing benefits (medical, dental, vision insurance), 401K after 1 year, work-life balance is easy, great hours, free wellness coach, vacation discounts, Fun atmosphere and work family

    Cons

    There isn't a con because with this company it's all about how much you put into it. If it doesn't work out it's not on them, it's on you. They offer so many opportunities for improvement and growth that it's hard not to improve yourself.

    Pros

    Descent company, benefits are adequate and time of, at least in my position was adequate and flexible.

    Cons

    My employment started off really fun and a little laid back. Once moved to new corporate office building became very corporate and began to lose its charm. If you look through the reviews you will see only positive responses from current employees who are completing reviews, to help offset the former employees who have less positive things to say. Makes sense, but it is a thin veil and what Wyndham is most concerned about - branding and damage control. Managers seem to have the hardest jobs in the company. Most directors and above don't seem to be as stressed as their subordinates (managers/supervisors) and hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Too much to write, but many of you directors and higher really need to take a long hard look at what you do or think you do each day to see if you are truly keeping it real in relation to those you manage.
