    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide

    Pros

    Very high quality hospitality company. Great energy and people to work with, trustworthy, hardworking, pleasant. Overall excellent experience, inner business/coworker treatment, and they allowed people to be themselves within the bounds of appropriate business dealings and demeanor. Wonderful manager too, she was patient, kind, humble, didn't try to change or demean your person. A lot of respect for her!

    Cons

    Pay was less for housekeepers than I would like, especially considering the hard work we have to do every day, plus living in an expensive resort town.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put up with teenagers who never smile, always gossip, treat their older coworkers with disrespect, and don't know how to clean.

    Pros

    I like the people I work with
    decent benefits
    pretty good atmosphere

    Cons

    The company says they will give you all you need for the job but getting the tools needed is a fight
    The management in my department is crazy unorganized
    Leaders in my department don't really know what they are doing or the basics of the job to tell you the truth

    Pros

    The day goes by quickly

    Cons

    You literally lie for a living. It is all puffery of a bad product in order to make commission.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Senior management has clear vision, very professional.
    Modern facilities and all the required tools provided.
    Good consulting rate.

    Cons

    Middle management on business side wanted everything. When they ask for the moon, they get star dust...mostly dust.
    Middle management on product and engineering side was afraid to to say no to anything, thus failure to meet immovable datelines.
    Information Technology development largely outsourced to Cognizant. Positions not filled with H1 visa will be offered lowest rate imaginable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep expectation to a reasonable and achievable level.

    Pros

    Large company slowly building a solid base and control on the hospitality business. They have a strong team that is slowly growing.

    Cons

    Company values need a revisit. Wyndham indisputably has "more hotels than anyone else in the world", but as the old saying "less is more" shift focus should be leveled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to shift the focus out of growth and increase overall quality of company, in an effort to match and exceed the quality of major competitors.
