    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

    Wyndham spun off from Cendant in 2006 so, while our brands are well established (Howard Johnson; Ramada; Super 8), the company as an independent entity is quite young. Steve Holmes is the only CEO in WYN's history. Financial results since the Global Financial Crisis ended are outstanding (stock bottomed at $2.77 in 2009, now near $90/share). Some specifics:

    Count On Me! culture taken very seriously.
    Collegial atmosphere encouraged and carefully guarded.
    Forward-thinking leadership.
    Work/Life Balance is genuinely supported.

    Cons

    Small organization (from a corporate perspective) limits upward mobility opportunities.
    Stock not available to rank-and-file employees.
    Bonuses dependent only on company performance, not individual performance.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to provide a broad-based equity participation program.
    Move to more variable compensation (top performers can achieve only $25-$50/paycheck more than average performers).

    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.
