    I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Well 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.

    Cons

    Middle 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 Management

    Empower the directors to run their own business, own their decisions.

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    work where you play able to move up quickly if you are financially able to stay with it - HIGH turnover rate creates open positions!

    Cons

    Areas of jobs tend to be of high real estate value (HIGH RENT) Pay is marginal to pathetic Most employees must work multiple jobs to pay for life expenses

    Advice to 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 order to pay off college loans, start a family, etc. Seasonal employees can be payed low wages as they are generally looking to "escape reality" for a winter or year
