    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide (More than 3 years)

    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

    Very welcoming and supportive atmosphere. Feels like family.

    I was in a potential temp-hire position, and they did not hire me.

    Keep it up. Working there was like a breadth of fresh air.

    You can make a ton of money if.....

    Cons

    ... you have no problem lying to clients. After mandatory sales compliance meeting team managers will tell you weeeel.... it's not realy lying if you never bring it up. Very deceptive high pressure sales tactics.

    Pros

    Did not see any pros

    Cons

    This company is not even on the Fortune Top 100 like Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton or Kimpton. Has had frequent CEO churn for the Hotel Division. The laid off executives cannot even scale up and find jobs of equal or better positions outside of Wyndham after working 10-15 years for this bottom feeding company. Crappy dirty hotels with poor quality in their portfolio. Franchised hotel owners flag with Wyndham brands knowing they can cut corners and run dirty hotels. Not a good career choice. Enough said.

    I worked at Wyndham Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    The company overall has a good/standard corporate holiday/vacation/PTO set-up, better than most companies. The benefits and perks are also very good, it is a great place to learn the basics of whatever your disciplined field is. As for Revenue Management, the department has great people and potential, along with areas of opportunity to improve.

    Cons

    The biggest area of improvement is an opportunity most large businesses face, the department is expanding rapidly and a lack of trust between the senior leadership and the team has developed. Looking back, I think it would be prudent that the department take time reflect on what is truly important, aside from growth and numbers, (which we know all companies strive to achieve). The current atmosphere has become that which is rife with a lack of communication and trust between the leadership and team. This is very unfortunate as there are many wonderful people there who want to achieve the best they can with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to truly strengthen the team from within. Expansion and stress are apart of all teams as they grow however; not having a strong foundation causes people to leave, the department culture to fall apart, and demoralizes the team as whole reducing productivity.

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

    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

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

    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.
