    Pros

    Great medical benefits and travel exclusives. Lots of healthy competition and incentives to motive you to hit production. Supportive leaders and close-knit, family kindof culture. I have been with the company for almost 4 years and have worked in multiple locations and developement to help me acheive my goals and ulitmately grow within the company.

    Cons

    The high amount of rejection you face in sales and marketing. However, this is why the successes are paid so highly.

    I worked at Wyndham Vacation full-time

    Pros

    yearly raises, ability to move up in company, ability to relocate within company

    Cons

    changes are made without input from the people they affect and without proper explanation. its hard to communicate properly with owners sometimes because of it.

    Advice to Management

    I would communicate changes and the reasons for such better with employees, especially when said changes affect the owners.

    Pros

    It's a good place to work they care a lot but it could be better just needs some enthusiasm. Business picks in the summer

    Some of the managers play favorites and it's puts more work on others at times but still job is not hard.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers need to be more enthusiastic about things

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

    Pros

    - Great health, vision, and dental benefits.
    - 401K match up to 6% (after 3 months of full-time status).
    - Large company where you can grow and move around without having to start all over.
    - Diversity is truly embraced -- includes diversity business clubs, celebrations, and speakers.
    - Company invests in keeping folks motivated with different.

    Cons

    - Mentoring is lackluster (only for the extreme select few).
    - C-level leadership does not have a true picture of the scope and breadth of work each team manages since there is no global prioritization or project management processes or systems.
    - Forward movement seems to go at lightning speed with some teams but without the proper infrastructure, communication and operational preparations to reduce chaos and ensure smooth product launches.

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in your staff by more than mere words or with mandatory classes. True mentoring programs are almost non-existent and could greatly benefit the company.
    - Invest in a project management processes and systems that give you a true picture of where the resources are spending their time, and where the money is being spent.
    - Continue to improve putting the right people (and not the favored people) in groups that seem to continually bring success but at the expense of chaos and "fire drills".

    Pros

    Had a great boss, great fun work environment...

    Cons

    Hands tied by corporate, and beware of back stabbers, keep to yourself and do your work you will be fine. The time share environment is ALL AROUND you no matter what they say, it's in their culture.

    Many most senior leaders only have sales experience and zero business capability. They only did sales at Wyndham their whole career.
