    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

    They gave me an opportunity for a position that I didn't really have a lot of experience doing very close to graduation working in the 'loop' area in downtown Chicago.

    Cons

    The job turned out to be more of a primer for sales positions & I'm just not interested in sales as a career or in any capacity & it clashed with my preparations for graduation, moving & graduate school...I need something that is closer to what I'm talented in that isn't sales.

    Advice to Management

    I really am not in a position to give them advice since they (original boss who left before me) took a chance on me & the others that I worked with who may still be employed with Wyndham...excellent corporation.

  8. The atmosphere is fun yet challenging. Sales is not for everyone but for those who have the skills, it can be very good
