    Pros

    The people. There are a lot of great people to work with.

    Cons

    The pay and how HR handles it. Long-term employees are penalized and not paid to market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with HR to make a better pay scale, more marketable for the long-term, loyal employees.

    Pros

    I have been with Wyndham for almost 4 years and I have nothing but great things to say about this company. The benefits are great! Plenty of vacation time (especially with tenure) and it is strongly encouraged to use, and best of all Wyndham offers many varieties of discounts on vacations to all of their employees! They always try to promote people within before searching outside of the company which is great for entry level employees who want to grow within the company. Management is caring and recognizes your hard work and your talents. Wages are fair, and even more so when you continue to grow with the company. I have been asked by upper management what I want to do in the company and how can they get me there. Expect to work very hard, but in return be rewarded for it.

    Cons

    Most complaints I hear are on the sales side, but what do you expect? Its a sales position, its not easy! No complaints here on the sales administration side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Friendly staff, nice customers. Big rooms for banquets and a decent pool. Can't really say anything else about it.

    Cons

    Understaffed, dirty rooms, old decor, uncaring management, never had enough imenities for guests, just unwilling to change and keep up in competing hotels in the area.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Decent pay and a annual bonus is a near certainty.

    Cons

    If they like you, you will be promoted in 6 months. If not, you will sit in the same role for 5, 10 or more years.

    Recurrent layoffs in every business unit are a reality in order to ensure Wyndham stays profitable. While their stock has gone up every quarter, the work/life balance is getting worse as more people are expected to fill in for roles that are being eliminated and won’t be replaced.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice building and gym. Looks very modern and well kept. CEO very nice.

    Cons

    Pay is below average for location so talented employees not attracted to company. When we do go on board smoke and mirrors fade fast. Many companies in the area that can pay and treat employees better so jumping ship is easy. Favoritism is a barrier to advancenent. Loyalty should be to the company and not cronies. The people that stay are not the best or have the highest credentials. Leadership is the same. After a while it feels as if you are there because you can't find anything better which is a little embarrassing. HR is very unresponsive and don't seem to have a clue about anything which makes working there very hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean your management and HR house. Get people who "get it" and can "do it" to represent the company. The company is great but the middle management needs to go.

    Pros

    The work environment is very inspirational, everyone helps each other with issues with members and certain situations. The staftt, supervisors and departmnent leaders all pull for one another.

    Cons

    The base pay is low, but that provides the incentive to sell more productions, vacations, points protection, memberships, etc. The compensation per each production is low, but if you become a high volume producer you can make 70K and up to 100K.
