    Pros

    Opportunity to move into different areas of the company. Focused on growing the busines in the right way

    Cons

    It takes senior leadership way too long to recognize, address and eliminate bad VPs who are dismissive and verbally abusive to their direct reports, territorial and unwilling to work with their peers and/or simply unqualified to hold their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Do more skip level meetings in order to gain a clear understanding of the business from every level and vantage point within the organization.

    Pros

    Full-time (32 hours) was guaranteed. Management will listen and consider employee's opinions. Rather easygoing management.

    Pros

    Everyone working for Wyndham Vacation Ownership truly has the customer's best interests at heart. A great collaborative environment, great ideas are always welcome.

    Cons

    A bit of chaos and disorganization, leading to project delays and frustrations. Sometimes people's emotions and relationships get in the way of work, as opposed to focusing on getting the best work done by the best person.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites. Work with the best.

    Pros

    Great employees, nice building, also allows for at home positions

    Cons

    Hires overqualified people for entry level jobs with promise of advancement then offers minor promotions at minimal pay increases for a lot more work. It would take years to reach a decent salary and acceptable position. Took avatar incentive pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay hire wages to weekend workers and restructure shift bid focus more on performance instead of tenure.

    Pros

    Wyndham has a very friendly work environment, fun coworkers, and excellent company events.

    Cons

    Ineffective and incompetent senior leadership who do not understand the departments they run and take no time to see the issues. No room for growth and constant false hope being given by senior leadership that there soon will be although we have heard this for 3 years with no change at all. Employees are regularly stretched way outside of their roles with no compensation or reward. Hard work and going above and beyond is taken advantage of instead of appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to see value in your employees. Reward those who go above and beyond instead of taking advantage of them. Stop basing everything on metrics that are not measured properly and expecting more with less staff. Promote from within and give opportunities to those who have proven their value and commitment. We regularly lose all of our best people to other companies because there is no where for them to grow within this company.

    Pros

    Very well organized company. The hiring process took a while but once I was hired, the orientation and training was asap. The entire department is like a well oiled machine, everything runs smoothly. A lot of teamwork and they always make sure they express how well you are doing. Everyone is very helpful; and just overall happy to be at work. Managers are always available to help and very friendly. The benefits are great as well, and not as pricey as other companies. There are alot of growth opportunities, activities, in-house clinic, gym, and clubs to join. They truly converted the workplace into a resort for employees, which makes us more efficient and happy to work our hardest.

    Cons

    Honestly, I can't think of anything negative to say.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and we can see why this company is so successful.

    Pros

    Great company with good pay and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Most management has been built on favoritism. These managers won't leave company because they know they would never make it elsewhere. FL employment is "at will" so if you rub management wrong way be prepared to have a difficult stay while they nitpick and build up a case to get rid of you or just make you so miserable you leave.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees not against them. Stop the favoritism and don't harass your employees.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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