    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Discounted hotel and vacation opportunities

    Cons

    Culture is backstabbing and vindictive. No one takes ownership, they point fingers when something goes wrong. Everyone is afraid to make mistakes , leadership has no experience and don't even support each other. There's no team or cohesiveness. Everyone's is miserable, work long hours and are treated like idiots

    Advice to Management

    Fire all your senior leaders and bring in people from the outside that are experienced in building strong teams. Trust the directors and managers, stop leaving us out and t resting us like we don't have value.

    Pros

    You're kept busy and there's always something to do.

    Cons

    The management is to empowered and can be very condescending. The raises are horrible. The, "open door" policy is a myth. I went to upper management and became a target in my department.

    Advice to Management

    Be more down to earth

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

    Pros

    Was a great company; had the best of management at all levels

    Cons

    Cronyism has set in. Feel bad for the CEO; he is being misguided by the inexperienced senior members of management he has surrounded himself with. All the wrong people are being promoted and the good people are leaving or being forced to leave.

    Advice to Management

    May be the CEO should step down and bring in fresh blood. The new industry disrupters will eat this company's lunch if the present management continues.


  7. "Be careful of what they offer you"

    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    Pros

    They have a very good training process on sales for timeshare products that you will also seize for yor benefit in the future

    Cons

    A product that, in my opinion is less popular as time passes. They tell you "to be successful in this business, you have to keep information for your self, don't tell everything you know, you have to be a little bit grey with your speech". For me that was a moral conflict.

    Advice to Management

    They have to bring to the table more transparency with employees and with the clients. They know deals cancellation rate is increasing and the main reason is because of that lack of transparency.


  8. "Worker"

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for advancement. Good benefits as well. Lots of friendly people.

    Cons

    You will spend a lot of time traveling. It is a new city every night. It is cool to see new places but can get tiring.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Loved the daily meeting and motivation

    Cons

    Did not like the sexual harassment & b.s. favoritism. People we're cheating on their significant others while on property and was just written up. If you produced even on "meth" they'd keep you because you're making them money.

    Advice to Management

    Realize not everything is about money it should be about the companies integrity.

    Pros

    The coworkers are friendly there.

    Cons

    Pay increases are at a minimum. There's no room growth and development. I was there for a few years and I received my CPO and HVAC certification and applied for a promotion and was never given the opportunity to move up. New employees start at a rate higher than those who have worked there longer. You will more than likely work on every holiday. It's busier on holidays so it's harder to get them off. There's a lot of micromanaging there. You have to record every individual activity you do on property and how long you take to do them.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to their employees' concerns and develop a growth and development plan for every employee.

    Pros

    Working in the hospitality industry is often fun and exciting and there's never a dull moment. The company changes constantly which provides individuals seeking job variety just what the doctor ordered.

    Cons

    The company's leadership is lacking in innovation and keeping up with modern technology and how to best reach consumers in today's marketplace. In their business units the leadership have been there way too long and continue to operate under a good ole boys club mentality. Office politics are second to none ... with games being played in order to get ahead and a lack of transparency and loyalty to associates.

    Advice to Management

    Actions speak louder than words. It's not what you say, it's what you do.
