    I have been working at Interval International full-time

    Pros

    Two work from home days for employees in the IT department. Flexibility with requesting time off (this depends on the manager). Location. Covered parking (assigned for some but for a fee). Relaxed work environment in some departments (depends on the manager). Decent technology to communicate and conduct meetings remotely. A good number of vacation days, including one day for your birthday.

    Cons

    Poor communication causes people to reinvent the wheel unnecessarily. Insufficient sharing of knowledge at times. Unprofessional behavior is tolerated in some departments to the point that it is disruptive to others. The majority of employees are very professional and knowledgeable but there are some who don't have a strong work ethic (this happens everywhere though).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer tuition reimbursement and make the yearly pay increases more significant. Continue to put bright, dedicated individuals in leadership positions (there have been some very good promotions recently that are improving our processes and performance).

    I worked at Interval International full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The call center : Comfortable environment w/ coworkers
    Corporate offices: more structured but very warm place to work

    Cons

    Finances are determined by an "incentive" (commission) basis, which is not guaranteed; positional advancement is difficult, based on a clique system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions and advancements should be based on true knowledge, experiences, and expertise rather than being promoted based on personal relationships and biases

    I worked at Interval International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable company that has been around for a while. Travel perks, compensation is average, as are benefits.
    Some areas of the company are more relaxed than others

    Cons

    All internal processes take too long to achieve end result. Too many employees with long tenures that aren't up to speed with newer outlooks on corporate cultures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to even out the salaries and job advancement as well as take more interest in the people who work for you.

    I have been working at Interval International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Historically has been relatively stable. Some travel perks but basically only to Orlando if you get lucky.

    Cons

    Very cheap organization. Little to no employee benefits or employee morale events (eg no christmas parties). Annual raises are negligible at best and not competitive with market, if there even is an annual raise; this year management just IGNORED annual raises and communicated no reason as to why, while spending millions buying businesses... that's an incredibly unprofessional way to treat over-worked and under-paid employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more respect for your employees and invest in them. Communicate much better.

    Pros

    My manager was always pushing our team to grow. He was always looking for the cutting edge technology to keep our skills up to date with the times.

    Cons

    There's a lot of cliques. Many people have worked there for a very long time...Some are not very open to people coming in from the outside.

    Pros

    Great Vacation and pretty good travel benefits

    Cons

    NO room for advancement and management is SEVERELY inept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need a definite restructure of management. They have been here for too long and act like high school kids. There are no policies and procedures just depends on the mood of the management that day on how they are going to deal with your issue. They're response is always no instead of finding a solution.

    Pros

    Company systems are divided into specialized groups

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately there are some employees that don't carry their weight. Fat trimming might be necessary.
