    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

    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

    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.


  6. Sale Representative

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.


  7. 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.

    Pros

    The company is very focused on the culture. The pay is good as well as the bonus structure. Vacation amount is commensurate with other roles at this level.

    Cons

    The company does not talent plan and therefore associates can become frustrated. A downside for new employees is that you can't participate in 401k plan until after the year.

    Advice to Management

    It is a great company and so many opportunities to to take advantage of synergies. That said, we almost never do that. Keep up the great job in recognizing the associates and providing a great place to work.
