Great culture, fun projects, great people, little ownership, low pay.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Broomfield, CO

ProsWell managed and fiscally conservative. Leader in the industry. Great people. No jerks. Lots of innovation. Great resort operators. Katz is smart and a great leader. Very good work-life balance. Excellent corporate values, very responsible in the communities they operate in.

ConsMiddle management has little autonomy, little ownership and little decision making power. The Executive Committee micromanages all decisions. Compensation is middle to low on the spectrum. Seems to have lots of turnover; likely due to lower pay, higher expectations and no ability to own. Benefit packages are standard for the travel industry, but minimal compared to other industries.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower the directors to run their own business, own their decisions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Really Bad Pay but opportunities to expand your service industry resume

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time for more than a year


    Pros: work where you play able to move up quickly if you are financially… Cons: Areas of jobs tend to be of high real estate value (HIGH RENT) Pay… Advice to Senior Management: Retain the talented, key employees with higher pay so that they will stay longer than 1-2 years max before they have to move on in… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
