    Pros

    I worked under John Waller North Myrtle Beach, SC and he was a great boss & leader. If you have the opportunity to have him on your table....he is a CLOSER D.O.N.E. !!!!

    Cons

    The tours are not better qualified, they should have to SHOW income to get in the building

    Advice to Management

    only schedule one tour on days when kids are off school, employees have families also

    Pros

    Great people, lots of celebrations. Your talking to owners about vacations all day, so it's not a bad conversation at all.

    Cons

    Gets repetative and in my experience management only promotes who they like and not who is best for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees engaged and challenged.

    Pros

    Pays very well, excellent benefits, advancement is unlimited if you work hard and want to move up. Salaried employees work a true 40 hour week if they want. I could never do that because I come from a generation that looks at a 40 hour week as an option but do not begrudge those that make that work. We survived the economic crisis and senior management did an excellent job adapting to the new economy.

    Cons

    Takes forever to fire bad employees, entitled employees can be a real pain to deal with, bad managers in position because they "play the game" or a minority and the company is scared of firing minorities. Probably typical of most of corporate America though. IT department is a headache. I literally want to punch them at times but of course will not so do not worry :) .

    Advice to Management

    Stop being afraid of dumping bad employees! Ungrateful employees? Dump them! You treat us very well and they do not appreciate it! The ones that do not move up do not do so because THEY SUCK! Stop enabling whiners. I have never worked for a company with so much opportunity. People should be knocking down the door to apply here. The ones that do not want to take the feedback and move up and then whine because they do not get the position that they covet need to be kicked out the door.
     I would recommend getting rid of fees for converting points to RCI and most reservation fees. We alienate a lot of property owners with these fees and suspect that millennials will not put up with business as usual. We need to adapt to that market.

    This is a great company to work for.

    Pros

    -Good salary and insurance.
    -Awesome benefits including tuition reimbursement, discounts, etc.
    -Large company allows for good growth in many areas.
    -While the company is extremely large, each property has a "family" feel.

    Cons

    -WVO is limited in certain positions, so administrative/executive positions (promotions) may require relocation to corporate locations or larger properties.
    -Certain job titles are given salary ranges across geographical areas, so they may be less competitive in different markets.

    Advice to Management

    Please give more diversity to smaller properties, including a better defined chain of command.

    Pros

    Super Fun! I started in sales and within 60 days, I was earning great commissions and bonuses, and met and exceeded my sales goals every month. I was 100 percent a team player, and had encouraging words for everyone, a genuine sales cheerleader (minus the sexy body). The first month I did well, my manager told me to keep doing exactly what I was doing, but that people would turn on me out of jealousy.

    Cons

    I was railroaded and fired. None of my three managers felt for a second that I should be fired. But, they coward and hid, while HR with the backing of non-performing bitter has-beens, made generalized false accusations... Since than, there have been quite a few firings, even the HR hag, that did her higher managements bidding, and my sales manager that gave me the advice. The other sales manager left as quickly as possible, as he said, "There is a special kind of hell, waiting for these people. I can't be a part of this."

    Advice to Management

    Management is spineless! Stand up for your employees. Wyndham, may you topple and fall, unless you change your careless ways and start treating your employees like the human-beings they are, instead of disposable resources, to be cast aside at your soulless whim.
