Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop thinking of yourself as a "mom & pop ski shop" and learn to listen to the ideas and thoughts from employees who have been in large corporate environments. The perception of management is that they are "winging it" trying to figure out how to be a large corporate entity.

    I worked at Vail Resorts

    Pros

    Decent perks, cool industry, terrible compensation

    Cons

    I agree 110% with all of the reviews on this board describing Vail Resorts as “Dysfunctional” with “Disconnected Management”. As one of the recently departed from the corporate office in Broomfield, after several years including the move from Keystone, all I can say is that I am glad to be gone and wouldn't recommend to anyone.

    Over the past 2-3 years numerous corporate reorganizations have resulted in very high turnover and the wrong individuals in the wrong positions. Most people who have been with the company for 1+ year are not very happy and would attest to all of this. Definitely not a place where you want to go in order further or progress a career.

    At one point in time, not too long ago, it did live up to the perceived experience that you would expect (good company, cool industry, etc…). Unfortunately that has all changed and it has become the “Wal-Mart” of the ski industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop running the company like a hedge fund
