    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wyndham Worldwide is named a top workplace in New Jersey every year for a reason. We have a fantastic culture here that offers employees the opportunity take advantage of development resources, the opportunity to move within the company, and the opportunity to learn every day from brilliant colleagues. Above all we have a very special characteristic in our senior leadership team, and that is authenticity. The tone set at the top is positive, it is supportive, and it continues to entice intelligent, driven professionals to join our company!

    Cons

    Area of opportunity - this is expensive, but investing in employee laptops makes a massive difference to the user experience. Our financial systems are incredible, but it would be wonderful if my computer did not freeze up when opening large data files. Not a huge issue but would be a welcomed tweak to the current status.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly and good co-workers, decent exposure to new technologies, relatively stable and large company. Relaxed work environment (pool tables and ping pong etc.), flex time and hours and 7 hour work days, at least on paper. Good 401k and health insurance policies, reasonable bonuses and other benefits including free vacations (hotel/resort stays). If you're part of certain key departments and smart enough, there is opportunity to travel around the world as they have offices in a lot of countries. Company policies are friendly for women, diverse groups etc. Overall I would recommend.

    Cons

    Not exactly paymaster, but all things considered (i.e. location, hours, bonus, 401k etc.) not too bad. Change of pace is slow and could be more innovative.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace innovation and changes more.

    Pros

    Good solid company. If you know what you are doing you will last a long time here.

    Cons

    Your Wyndham employee discount doesn't get you far at high end travel spots like hawaii

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The lunches are good and the snow days are nice.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance Compensation and benefits are extremely competitive People are professional, friendly, and easy to work with Updated, pleasant campus and office environment

    Cons

    Management can be extremely political Blatant favoritism or double standards can exist HR is about protecting the company, not the individual employee

    Advice to Management

    Closely examine job duties vs. job titles and work experience. Some personnel get promoted far past their experience levels and some people are being taken advantage of while being overlooked or even shouted down when concerns are raised.

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with. Great perks like summer and flex hours. Friendly environment. Opportunity for growth within other departments and Wyndham Worldwide groups.

    Cons

    Concept of "fairness" is questionable. Seems like the rules depend on the leader and individual (jobs are custom created for favorited individuals), new leadership has not properly vetted in-house talent, people are moved and promoted for no apparent reason (w/o results, achievements etc)

    Advice to Management

    Properly engage and solicit current talent. Rules should apply to all. All new positions should be open for interviewing

    Pros

    Amazing perks and facilities. Employees enjoy this very much. Some of the employees and managers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Good employees need more recognition. I think HR can definitely step up their game.

    Pros

    Co-workers were friendly. The NJ office space is nicely designed.

    Cons

    Most brands are de script. Many hotels are lack luster causing consumers to see hotels as a commodity.

    Advice to Management

    Stop spooking the staff with so many layoffs and downsizing. Refocus HR off trying to portray the company as being the "best" employers and actually become the best employer.

    Pros

    Easy commute, some staff are very helpful, seems to be changes in the horizon.

    Cons

    Demands for hours but do not pay, promise comp time but fight you on it. Management lacks skills. 1980s corporate mentality. There seems to be a general lack of leadership, focus is on micro-managing. Trust is a four letter word here.

    Advice to Management

    Train your staff before promoting. Talk to your front line people, they do the work and would better prepare you for the changes required. Get a better grip on hours, pay and laws.
