    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. They treat you like family. You build great relationships with everyone. if you love helping and serving customers, this is the place for you. After 6 months, you can move to another location and if they like you, you can move up into management.

    Cons

    Pay. The pay isn't good. It is very low but it teaches you that you need to do things to make your life better

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, beautiful headquarters building in Parsippany, NJ, Leadership is getting better. IT folks can work from home when the weather is bad, flexible working hours if needed.

    Cons

    Promotions are political. Layoffs happen to cut expenses. Several rounds of layoffs happened in late 2014 and early 2015. At times, folks are motivated by abusive treatment rather than accepting that mistakes do happen and can be fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on generating revenue versus cutting expenses to make the financial numbers look good. Institute a mentor program in the company to reduce the reliance on promotions for political reasons.

    Pros

    A great place to work. Friendly people. Nice culture. Mostly laid-back atmosphere. Good work-life balance. Flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Career growth prospects may seem high but getting an actual promotion is challenging. Doesn't seem to matter how much work you do or how high quality work you do, unless you are constantly visible to management on various things, very hard to get a promotion.

    Pros

    Fast paced and energized atmosphere. Typically average less than thirty hour work week, potential to earn three figures based on your own performance and not others. (sales) Other divisions of the company get my thumbs up, the company gives back tremendously to communities and those in need.

    Cons

    If you want to make ends meet, you have to be willing to hard sell at all times. There is no room for compassion or a tailored fit sale. You can sell clean, you just wont earn big commission. Draw based salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New employee training should be more straight forward. Training for Real Estate Commission reasons is based on honesty and integrity. Three quarters of the actual sale is unlike the training, it isn't for everyone and you wouldn't have the extensive turn over rate it people knew what they were getting into.
