    Pros

    Wyndham is a GREAT place to work. though, it depends on what department you fall in to. Hospitality facing, amazing - IT, not so much so.

    Cons

    Pay is generally lower in the hospitality industry. I hear work-life-balance complaints, but I have never had an issue myself

    Pros

    Nice building, cafeteria food is decent.

    Cons

    no direction or leadership from top down. Constant churn with executives making continuity in strategy impossible. Power plays always happening with executives with some convincing corporate parent execs they are better. The others are ousted along with the requisite 100 employees per year who get laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Know your talent.

    Pros

    A great group of individuals who want to be successful and work well together.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the leadership does not know if it is a franchisor or a hotel company. We acquire other weak hotel brands to keep room count up because the franchises don't really like our services and value prop. Compared to other major hotel companies our growth has been weak and we lack real innovation. HR is weak as we have a revolving door of organization leaders and expected tenure is short. i.e. weak culture and cannot hire good leaders that will last (Corp HR). Corp leadership likes to be an over burden to business units as they have a "BU does not know what they are doing attitude" but there has been nothing innovative from corp. Corp leadership are friends of Steve (CEO) and are getting complacent. Corp board are Blackstone friends of Steve and are not actively involved but like their board compensation. Steve is a very nice individual and level headed but has been in the position a long time and while the stock is successful, there is not a strong vision or strategy, there is nothing great about the company and there is a significant revolving door. When I departed after a long tenure, a recruiter called me a survivor and I was not respected at other hotel companies. If you join, it will be a small "stepping stone" pm your journey where you will not grow in your profession.

    Advice to Management

    It might be time to retire....Not due to performance but due to lack of real solid performance compared to other companies. While Steve is visible and is nice there is very little outcome. Wall Street Analyst following company should examine room count from 2007 to today and include acquisitions. There is no real contribution to Franchisees and the leadership does not really care...It is all gross room revenue.

    Pros

    Upper management really wants every individual to do well and coaches them to be the best possible; great place to grow; benefits are decent; overall pretty great place to work

    Cons

    For a vacation company, very little vacation days and vacation days do not roll over into the following year; HQ is a little out of the way

    Pros

    Generous bonus structure, admin staff is helpful & knowledgeable, if you are a top producer you won't be micro-manager.

    Cons

    Tour quality, no paid vacation or holidays off, constant staffing and policy changes.

    Advice to Management

    Address the tour quality issues rather than continuing to blame sales reps for not being able to close a deal on people who can't qualify.

    Pros

    The team atmosphere was fun most of the time. Lots of incentives and contests.

    Its timeshare. So welcome to high pressure sales and having to spin every sentence in your pitch. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Find a system that more people feel comfortable supporting. Make it a less painful experience for the guests.
