Pros

Great locations, many fun people work for the company.

Cons

Has become a completely cash focused, short time horizon company - does not seem to be thinking or working with any future in mind.

Advice to Management

Communicate better - we understand things if they are explained to us, and will be more than happy to help.

    Pros

    Benefits are the best part - Skiing, Golfing and Biking. Well balanced work vs. play attitude. Employer promotes healthy mountain lifestyle, a relaxed work environment. Mostly fun young co-workers, superb living locations. Cold Snowy winters (good or bad). 401k matching -> up to 3 1/2%. Take-A-Break: During off season non-exempt core employees must take 2 weeks off at 1/2 pay and can optionally take an additional 2 weeks off at 1/2 pay.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other employers, limited internal growth potential, higher than average living expenses (typical with resort towns). Cold Snowy winters (good or bad). Commuting or just walking can be hazardous due to inclement weather. Expensive food. Very transient - seasonal work force. Plethora of international workers during winter season. Limited variety of employment during off season.

    Advice to Management

    Don't nickel and dime your workers and you might not have such high turnover!

    Pros

    Free ski pass, co-workers typically all very passionate about the outdoors and active lifestyle. If you like change, this is a great place to work as nothing stays the same for long.

    Cons

    Culture has changed over the years to be very corporate driven. Company has not seen consistent leadership in years, which results in schizophrenic philosophies and company direction from leadership team to leadership team. Long term thinking and planning is 1 year out at best.
