I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The Vail Resorts office has a nice lounge/coffee bar for all of the staff, in my department I had some great teammates and there was almost no office drama, all employees get free ski pass and some vouchers for friends and family, the lodging discounts are alright and if you pick the right time of year there are some good ones.

Cons

The pay is below average and the benefits do not make up for the deficiency. The work culture is awful and has very little flexibility for alternative work options like occasionaly working form home for example. The paid time off is also severely lacking. Upper management is constantly meddling in projects and causing more work for the teams.

Advice to Management

The office culture is seriously lacking and you will need to make some moves to retain your most talented workers so don't be afraid to break away from the status quo and try something new, you do it all the time with big marketing projects like EpicMix. Also there is no incentive to bring up new ideas because the performance incentive is laughable.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    * Good work life balance * Fun Industry * Ski Pass

    Cons

    * Longtime management isn't receptive to new technology * Limited growth opportunities * Disorganized management

    Advice to Management

    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.
