    Pros

    You get paid? That's really all I can think of. Save yourself your sanity and don't even apply here. Life is too short to waste it here.

    Cons

    They steal from your paycheck.
    Creative and/or critical thinking is highly discouraged.
    They have the wrong people in key roles.
    They are hemorrhaging money because they will not change anything they've done for the past 15 years.
    Two people on the marketing team make all the decisions for the whole company.
    Tech leadership team is a complete joke. They have zero backbone and cave into the 2 key stakeholders on marketing.
    They won't promote you.
    They encourage "yes men" and do not want you to think.
    The actual Sunset building is ugly and outdated as much is their way of thinking.
    There is no sense of community.
    Too much too list really...

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to listen. This is not a dictatorship. Honestly I would clean house with 80% of the senior leadership. They have all been there for at least a decade and do not want to listen or adapt to latest trends/technologies. They are all dinosaurs.

    I worked at Interval International full-time

    Pros

    The departments are EXTREMELY cliquey. It makes it hard to do your job. I woke up every single morning dreading coming into work. Employees would literally spend their day looking into your life, gossiping, and shopping instead of doing their work. Horrible, horrible experience.

    Cons

    Cliques; uninspiring work; unmotivated employees ("That's not my job" attitude); poor management; little room to move up; nothing is based on merit

    Advice to Management

    Create a more inclusive environment.

    I have been working at Interval International full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have deep pockets for projects - but just not any projects that you recommend or need.

    Cons

    You are a number. Simple as that. They have no issues about cutting pay, overtime, vacation time or any other unethical but legal thing they can get thier hands on. All systems are convoluted and complex. Ordering any I.T. equipment takes at least 1-2 weeks to be approves and even longer to be shipped. Pay has been cut - for me personally - 30% for the same position, OT removed, benefits cut to minimal and you have at least 3 people to report to. All who which dont speak to each other - so get ready to explain things 5-10 times over and over. The CEO - is a terrible liar. You can clearly see right thru his fake smile whenever you talk to him. Be very weary of its practices and its top level execs. Every single promise we got from Execs has been broken, with no remorse.

    If you currently work for this company - ever

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employee's better. Without them you wont have a business to even run. We are not just employee numbers that affect the bottom line, but we are the ones who are actually doing the work to allow you fat cats to keep getting your 6 digit bonus'.

    Non-existent HR department - total lack of discipline at every level.

    Treat your staff like human beings rather then "your lucky to have a job" mentality.

    Pros

    The call center management staff and many of the employees were great to work with, many were passionate about what they did and committed to doing their best.

    Cons

    If call center employees used intermittent FMLA, it dropped their ranking so they got worse schedules, which is a violation of FMLA to punish workers for exercising this right. Interval supposedly stopped doing that in 2014. They also had dozens of IT and Finance Contractors whom there were no records they submitted and passed background checks or drug checks. There were no records these people were even who they claimed to be since there were no records their id was provided, no picture taken for their security access ID badge or their vehicle information. However, minimum wage employees with little to no access to confidential information submitted to all these screenings.
    Most concerning to me is the fact that many tourism and hospitality customers may not realize that IILG manages the back office and therefore customer data for various subsidiaries and partners that may include Trading Places International (TPI), Hyatt Residence Club, Aqua-Aston Hospitality, Vacation Resorts International, VRI Europe, Hyatt Vacation Ownership (HVO), the Hyatt Residence Club, Hyatt Vacation Ownership, other affiliates of Hyatt Hotels Corporation as well as other participants in their timeshare and cruise exchange programs. This potentially exposes hospitality service providers and millions of their customers to data breach without their slightest level of awareness. For example, who would have the resources and perspective to link burglaries of the families of these various providers while they travel? Would investigators be able to identify a pattern and source or would they simply conclude occurrences were unrelated?
    Raising concerns and potential legal and ethical violations to senior executives results in termination.

    Advice to Management

    Value ethics and hold executives accountable. Value employees. Comply with laws and don't retaliate against workers that raise legitimate concerns. Don't allow any "leader" to violate the policies they are suppose to be enforcing, micromanage to the extreme degree, ridicule workers publicly.

    Micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in your design team and design experts.
    Empower the Web Design Manager and team.
    Grow balls.
    Design team should make the final decision when it comes to the design and experience. Not anyone else.
    Give management leadership classes.

    Pros

    First two years were excellent. Highly autonomous. Commission-based sales reps require flexibility, and management understood that well.

    Cons

    New management valued rigidity over employee morale. Morale suffered, commission-based sales suffered, reps got desperate, clients felt pressured, service suffered, revenue plummeted, culture crashed.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that your previous experience is not a cookie cutter mold that you can apply to every new job you get after running one into the ground.
