    I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful co-workers. Great ski mountains- good place to get started.

    Cons

    Disconnect between Broomfield (corp hq's) and the real people who make the resorts work. It is all about the profit margin, nothing else. There are better places to work and live. Benefits are minimal, apathy is everywhere. Mid management is young and inexperienced.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs a new CEO who is truly into creating the "experience of a lifetime". It will never happen under CEO Katz- a Wall Streeter who only gets excited about carressing the books to amake him look good. Terrible turnover in all depts. Lousy pay. Too many people on the hill- it is DANGEROUS skiiing in Vail.


  2. Awful!

    Pros

    Ski Pass with access to some awesome mountains but just think, that's only 650$. And they can't take it away if you buy it. Everyone reviews about great experiences in the mountains but, again, not something that can't be procured alone, and ski culture is amazing no thanks to Vail Resorts. Great for 6 months. Not long-term.

    Cons

    Discriminatory (Both sex and sexuality) Management is delusional. No formal training, from lift ops to table service. HR is worthless. They appreciate Visa workers more than non-visas No reward for flexibility VERY HARD TO ACHIEVE A STATUS THAT OFFER BENEFIT EVEN AFTER 2 YEARS No raises. Ever. Many of your co-workers either won't shower or won't speak English. Or both. Awful systems in place. Horrible business practices. Undeserving people get promoted (familyandfriends) Corporate bully attitude (work or leave) Too big, too fast Snow dictates moods from angry guests if there's a lack of snow, and the employees that can't enjoy it when it comes.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your long-term staff. Give raises. Pay attention. Improve the 64 properties you have and stop buying the ones that consume the attention you only have for the company that existed only 3 years ago.
