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

    Pros

    Good experience with the company and senior management. Company was forced to adapt to changing economic conditions, but overall handled the situation well

    Cons

    Could be difficult to navigate the corporate bureaucracy, but this was my first experience in a company of this size

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate wide organizational decisions and policies don't always provide the intended results in all departments.

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work at. Really busy in IT related projects, and do alot of contracted work. Not contract to hire. Some of the perks include discounts for accommodations in Wyndham properties Worldwide.

    Cons

    Treat contractors as outcast. For example: They do ice cream socials for the whole building but specifically tell contractors they are not allowed. They do the same for Thanksgiving when handing out the turkeys to everyone in the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are no company values. There's a great deal of back end favors taking place and the level of corporate politics is very high. Tough to get many things done in a timely fashion do to all the red tape and political landscape.

    Pros

    Money can be good if you want to lie

    Cons

    Sales are based on falsehoods and play acting that something is wrong with account. Don't ever expect to sleep well at night or have a personal life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most managers are in this position because they don't know how to sell anything.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The offer a good pay and good hours. Each week had free food, seminars, and amazing offers. I personally took advantage of their vacation offers that allowed me to visit my choice of their properties across the world

    Cons

    A little too informal. Computer systems obsolete - could really benefit from upgrading their computer programs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be better structured for your employees. Empower them to talk with you and help make the company better

    Pros

    Great resort Good location, its a timeshare so you have to deal with all the sleazy sales reps who work there.

    Management does not listen to needs and advice of employees. Sales staff are sleazy and think they are the most important thing there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible when it comes to asking for time off, great people you're working with and a good work environment

    Cons

    It is tough in the winter season when it comes to making money, however management knows you by name so that makes it somewhat of a family environment.

    Pros

    The people! In a larger professional busines environment you come across people that you would choose to be associated with in or outside of work. I see the "Count On Me!" service value at work every day!

    Cons

    This is an incredibly fast paced environment that challenges associates to work smart, be innovative, and provide value. These challenges are not for everyone.
