    Pros

    2 Free Ski Lessons a Month
    Nice Co-workers

    Cons

    Incompetant Managment
    No positive reinforcement
    Pay couldn't keep a bird alive
    Pathetic, greedy low commission structure

    Advice to Management

    Get a reality grip on people's performance and what they actually contribute
    Show a little more appreciation to all employees and the hard work they do, even if you don't like their "sales stats"
    Don't nit-pick to death, and give inaccuarate, off-based reviews to employees
    Go back to mangement school

    Pros

    The product and people are wonderful. Employees are passionate about creating Experiences of a Lifetime for the guests. This translates into creating incredible experiences for employees ranging from experiencing the multiple products the company has to offer to innovating the next product that will change the industry. There is no question Vail Resorts is the best in the world in their industry.

    Cons

    The company can be extremely demanding on its employees. It has many irons in the fire at any given time and this taxes many employees and creates burnout. Additionally, the compensation tends to be lower than market. I believe these contribute to the high turnover the organization has experienced in its professional positions.
