    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Wonderful family environment. Everyone is on a first name basis and are really supportive of each other. The sky is the limit. Wyndham fully promotes furthering your career within the company and encourages it.

    Cons

    Have not encountered any as of yet.

    Advice to Management

    Availability and accessibility could be improved.


  2. "Wyndham is not the best company to work for, but you can advance with hard work"

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Adequate training, easy to move up in the company.

    Cons

    The company culture is not friendly, and the "industry standards" they follow are harsh on small business owners. They do not listen to owners/managers, but instead adamantly follow what a guest says, even when the guest is wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Gear the company culture towards the people running your hotels - the owners/managers and trust what they say.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of flexibility with my position. Hours were not bad as long as you took care of your personal business throughout the day.

    Cons

    I was offered a 1% raise after my first annual review and a 1.5% raise after my second annual review. No holiday bonuses were offered to anyone at my local branch for both of the holiday seasons that I was there. They are tight with money right now and are in a competitive market with other vacation rental companies. The lack of professionalism in the office and lack of Human Resource presence was a concern throughout my time at Wyndham as well.

    Advice to Management

    Money talks and keeps employees motivated to stay with a company and succeed.
    A 1% raise offer the first time and a 1.5% raise offer the second time was alarming that the company does not value it's employees. Please look out for your current employees and keep them motivated by offering annual salary increases of 3% or more.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    good work life balance, most my coworkers were awesome people, not only is the work easy but there want a lot of it which can get boring.

    Cons

    Low pay, VP, director titles are given out like to a lot of people, diminishes the title. Alot more VPs then junior positions.

    COMPANY IS CHEAP
    Benefits are could be better
    LOW learning environment.

    Advice to Management

    Management did the right thing by trimming the fat from high level positions.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    potential to make a lot of money if you happen to be good at the job

    short days, good work life balance

    pretty good sense of satisfaction upon making sales

    relaxed and helpful management from my experience, if you can hit your numbers

    Cons

    what you're selling is a scam, most people are even aware it's a scam and as mentioned before this is very cold sales, stopping people in the middle of the street sales, you're mostly selling on personality rather than the product

    most people can't do the job, extremely high turnover

    you're fired if you can't hit the sales goal

    Great co-workers. Good benefits. Not including Health Insurance.

    Pros

    Great corporation that is definitely growing

    Cons

    Do not know schedule for the following week until 1 day before the start of the next week

    Advice to Management

    Remember where you started. Do not let your position be about power but more about empowering others

    Pros

    They get sued at least once a year-extra money!!

    Cons

    Hours were supposed to be 7:30-12:30 but that was quickly proved a lie. No targeted marketing for qualified tours-anyone that could fog a mirror that had a credit card was a 'tour'. Unethical and illegal sales tactics prey on the ignorant and elderly. And then on top of all this, a crappy third-rate product.

    Advice to Management

    Get real managers, not desperate con artists. Stop lying to people and spend some money getting qualified tours that actually want and can afford the product. Create a real culture instead of your 'drink the kool-aid' cult mentality.
