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

Pros

The beautiful environment of working and living in the mountains. An annual ski season pass and discount coupons for friends and family. Employee housing when available.

Cons

They get very cheap labor from many highly educated college graduates for menial jobs and imply that advancement is possible. Doesn't happen.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Use the talents of your college educated employees who take any job available to live and work in a culture they love, and let them grow. They could be your greatest assets if you let them.

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

    Pros

    free ski pass, and coffee

    Cons

    Poor management, they are clueless about lower level operations. They promote the laziest people who kiss the most butt. Their turnover is super high, over 70% in the last year. HR is worthless. If you are a yes-man and like being overworked and underpaid, -this is the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some competent open minded managers that don't discriminate against employees based on your sex.

    I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time

    Pros

    Company executives care about creating an engaging workplace. Company is expanding and successful, which is nice to be a part of. Management is open to identifying areas of opportunity working to improve them.

    Cons

    The company is getting large enough that at times the information doesn't get to everyone as quickly as it could or as accurately as it could.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
