I have been working at Oakwood Worldwide full-time

Pros

Friendly staff, great rates for travel

Cons

Extremely under-qualified leadership. Seems like they are promoted based on time at the company, nepotism and how well-liked, rather than qualifications. Team leads and supervisors know less about the day-to-day work than those they manage. Terrible training, and definitely not paid commensurate to workload.

Advice to Management

Take the time and resources to examine current team leads and supervisors. Teams would be far more effective and efficient with proper, comprehensive training and leadership that doesn't spend so much time trying to look busy.

    I worked at Oakwood Worldwide as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small family feel. Good exposure to upper access management. Not a very hectic environment, and as an intern I was treated well and appreciated. Good global exposure if working in worldwide division.

    Cons

    The company feels out of date. Still being run by the founder who has good intentions but the company could use a facelift. Some people work really hard, but one can easily get away with doing the bare minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more modern oakwood, particularly in branding.
