    I have been working at Wyndham Worldwide (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity due to the multiple divisions and size. Great Brands to work on from hotel to Timeshare. Hospitality is a great industry. Great location if you don't want to work in NYC. Beautiful campus. Bonus structure is great, but only if the company performs well which is fair.

    Cons

    Continuous layoffs and restructuring on a yearly basis. Everyone wonders when it will be their turn. Yearly increases are small since the recession. Lack of communication from the top down is an issue, but typical of large companies.

    Advice to Management

    Too many layoffs and restructuring takes away from being a great company.

    Pros

    Good amount of vacation time and 401K match

    Cons

    People being promoted without experience.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who gets promoted. This company is going to have a brain drain soon and loose a lot of great people overnight.

    Pros

    Flexible environment, benefits are good.

    Cons

    Expect layoffs at least 3-4 times a year, be prepared to experience some extensive brown-nosing rather than merit or experience based promotions. Management changes all the time so the trickle down effects is frequently revised goals, visions and new incoming team referred by new management based on favoritism & bureaucracy.

    Pros

    If you really know how to sell, you can make a lot of money but when it's slow they look for reasons to replace you.

    Cons

    Most of the people you're selling to don't want to be there, and are just there for the free gift.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, the management is good. They do try to help you sell as best they can because they are jobs depend on it as well.

    Pros

    It is a good place to start out. But you have to be willing to work your way up and not settle for less.

    Cons

    Some people don't want to see you do better so they will do anything to see you grow. They have gotten comfortable in their positions so they don't really encourage growth for anyone else either.

    Advice to Management

    Be more encouraging.. Offer better opportunities for advancement. Get rid of the managers who don''t want to see others succeed.

    Pros

    Employee discounts are great, and the work/life balance works well. They want you to take time off. Afterall this is a vacation company.

    Cons

    The job is very stressful, as payroll is processed multiple times per week, because they have locations all over the US that process on different cycles. Also, there is a serious lack of training.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, and when they ask for additional training, provide it.
