I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

World-wide brand recognition. They are striving to become a more green company.

Cons

No clear SOP's, slow decision-making from management, unrealistic work/life balance, understaffed offices. They look good on paper, but often due to being understaffed, they under deliver. They need better management on all levels.

Advice to Management

make decisions based on feedback from employees in the field before you lose valuable talent

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

    Pros

    Discounts at hotels/resorts, Starbucks at corporate office, good paid off policy

    Cons

    Worked here for many years. The last several years there has been a steady decrease in respect and appreciation for employees and the franchisees they are supposed to support. The company has had record years, but that is rewarded with mediocre raises. There is no investment in technology, so systems and hardware are outdated.

    Advice to Management

    There is more to a successful business then numbers and the bottom line. There is an extreme disconnect between the PR statements and town hall meetings and the reality of the day to day.

    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits start the first day of the next month you start. They don't pay full medical/dental....employee has a large co fee to pay. Otherwise, not many other pro's.
    Due to management changing all the time, it's help me keep my job because they froze the goal requirements while waiting for new management.

    Cons

    Run by corp. so management is always changing. I have had 4 different managers within 2 years. New managers bring in new rules that do not work well because they have not been with the site before and do not know what makes things run smoothly. Another new manager makes the same mistakes the last one made, etc... all hurting the employees. Moral low. Very high turn over of marketers. By the time new manager figures things out they are moved to another site. They pay sick leave but penalize employee greatly if they call in sick, making it so you do not hit your minimum weekly goal. Don't make your goal, you get written up. 4th write up, fired.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a manager at a site at least a couple years to build a great team. Since this job is so draining on an individual, allow 4 day work weeks if employee wishes for it, instead of making work 5 days, 5 hours days.
