    Pros

    "What do we do here? We put people on vacation! If we can't make it fun for our employees, how are we going to make it fun for our guests?"...a direct quote from one of my leaders....and it was true. Wyndham truly went out of it's way to provide a great employee experience.

    Cons

    Pre-split, the three business unit structure with significant duplication of function made things difficult, particularly if you were in corporate and had to take everyone into consideration as opposed to being in a BU where they could be more nimble by addressing the needs of the BU's employees. The split likely eliminated this problem.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow either now-independent company to deviate too far from the secret sauce that made it a great place to work.

    Pros

    They are one of the largest hospitality companies in the world with the most number of hotels (majority franchised). They have great training programs to help better your professional skills.

    Cons

    This is quite property specific, but can say a lot about the company as a whole. There was an incredible amount of turnover and a massive lack of community and positive work culture. It's a small property and should feel like a small family, but instead felt like 100 individuals going about their own duties. My direct report had an incredible lack of follow through and had a management style that was demeaning. At one point, this individual had mentioned that he/she missed their previous job at a different brand and that this property is "not normal" when it came to community. When I put my notice in, not a single member of senior management asked for my feedback or asked for an exit interview. It was almost as if they knew what was going to be said, but didn't want to hear it. It was just shocking for a company that has such a large portfolio of hotels around the world - quite disappointing and alarming.

    Advice to Management

    Create culture and get your team members excited to be there, along with management. It all starts from the top.

    12 days of PTO

    Cons

    Overworked

    Quit and bring in the new. Your style is outdated.

    Pros

    Great benefits, culture, pay, etc

    Cons

    Watch out for manager corruption. My manager was paying employees for sex, and promoting those that did. When I found out, I didn't even want to get involved. He framed me for two offences I didn't do. I got fired. I got him fired shortly after, but they didn't help me at all.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow Corporate Pimps to work at your establishment.
