    Pros

    Great place to work! People are extremely friendly and willing to help interns. As a marketing intern, I was exposed to working on my own projects as well as team-based projects. The internship program has a "Case Study" project which allows you to work with other interns on an initiative for Wyndham to gain competitive edge.

    Cons

    I do not have any negative comments about my internship.

    Pros

    Great team members, open door policy, wonderful benefits, green initiatives, company is really focused on helping the environment and encouraging community and diversity development.

    Cons

    In all corporate offices there are some associates that are damaging and take advantage of the system, are not team players and do not have the best interest of the company in mind.

    Advice to Management

    Think outside the box sometimes. Having great associates are wonderful but keep in mind that the ones that are customer facing (i.e. call center) are usually the ones that get the daily calls and resolve the problems that leadership never sees. Recognize them on a regular basis. You're doing a good job, but as we always say, there is always room for improvement.

    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

    Large company, opportunity to transfer after 6 months.

    Cons

    There are many sales representatives that treat sales admin staff terribly and are able to get away with it just because they drive in profits for the company. Unfortunately because of the low wage for the entry-level position, the majority of staff they hire do not have the talent or skills necessary to succeed in the position. Extremely high employee turnover. Human resources is not nearly involved as much as they should be which allows for an extremely unprofessional and inappropriate work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Better compensation for staff that have been there for more than 6 months - 1 year.

    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

    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

    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.

    Pros

    Great benefits, income potential is there

    Cons

    To much favoritism, the concept of them hiring within and taking care of there own is just not true. I not the company it's people they put into to these leadership roles should not be there because I witness how many them became leaders. (Favoritism) very high turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    If you have royal employees that has been with the company over 5+, these people know there jobs then these people should have 1st priority. They should not be chosen over someone you favor or that's a party buddy.


  11. Great sales training and a stepping stone to something else

    Pros

    Good benefits, short work days and work weeks.

    Cons

    Upper Management needs to truly get their act together. You are losing spectacular and successful employees because you do not care.
