    Poor Senior Management and corporate America at it's worst.

    I worked at Starwood Vacation

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on up scale and high profile projects.

    Cons

    It's not what you know it's WHO YOU KNOW and who are you willing to suck up to!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When an organization need to restructure or downsize. My advice is to lay-off base on performance. It's sad to see what AVO has become. Where's the culture?

    I have been working at Starwood Vacation

    Pros

    Cheap hotel stays make this job great. Employees are offered the chance to get rooms at $29/$49/$89 at every Starwood hotel, which makes it great if you like to travel. Most of the employees are very friendly as well.

    Cons

    Since the economic downturn, senior management has chosen some "interesting" ways to cope involving mass layoffs that have been fostering a culture of fear. The impression is that if you don't work a 12 hourr day, you're are next on the chopping block.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand that cost-cutting is necessary, but explanation and logic as opposed to secrecy and randomness would make Starwood Vacation Ownership a great place to work again.
