    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large company slowly building a solid base and control on the hospitality business. They have a strong team that is slowly growing.

    Cons

    Company values need a revisit. Wyndham indisputably has "more hotels than anyone else in the world", but as the old saying "less is more" shift focus should be leveled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to shift the focus out of growth and increase overall quality of company, in an effort to match and exceed the quality of major competitors.

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great co-workers
    - Decent salary and benefits

    Cons

    The IT department was the revolving door of the company. High turnaround...and often

    Other parts of the business appeared to be much more stable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more local talent!
    I find it a bit hypocritical when a company touts being a "preferred employer" and good corporate/community citizen when a sizable number of staff are H-1B consultants.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, hours, product and the potential to work your way up through the company.

    Cons

    High stress environment, considered a "hard sale", the expected closing percentage for successful agents is 20-30%. Get used to hearing no, because the times that they say yes even at 30% will land you in a 100k+ career.

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only pros is talking to a variety of people from all over the world as well as the company parties.

    Cons

    Get everything on paper. I got "timeshared". My manager said I was going to be making 5,000 to 14,000 a month. First thought was wow, I'll do it. Reality is that you get placed in the most terrible of locations with the already established marketers get the prime locations. They play favorites, so just stand your ground. Make sure you read the handbook, its very contradictive if you you are apparently do something wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing the favorites game and actually value you employees opinion. And learn the definition of insubordination before you fire someone for answering a question.

    Current Employee - Senior IT Implementation Manager  in  Orlando, FL
    Current Employee - Senior IT Implementation Manager in Orlando, FL

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide as a contractor for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great place to work at. Really busy in IT related projects, and do alot of contracted work. Not contract to hire. Some of the perks include discounts for accommodations in Wyndham properties Worldwide.

    Cons

    Treat contractors as outcast. For example: They do ice cream socials for the whole building but specifically tell contractors they are not allowed. They do the same for Thanksgiving when handing out the turkeys to everyone in the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are no company values. There's a great deal of back end favors taking place and the level of corporate politics is very high. Tough to get many things done in a timely fashion do to all the red tape and political landscape.
