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

Pros

Great work-life balance, it is a ski resort company by all means, fresh air, free skiing, amazing views

Cons

pay isn't the best, work is seasonal for most employees, hard to get one of the few year-round positions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

shouldn't acquire anymore resorts in places where snowfall isn't consistent (i.e. Tahoe)

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    During my tenure '99-'07 the Corporate Office was located in Avon and being able to work for a publically traded professional organization and live in the mountains was a great opportunity. During this time Vail Resorts grew significantly and it was exciting to be part of that work.

    Cons

    In the aftermath of 9/11 the tourism sector took a major hit and it was hard to see the impact that had on the employees in the communities that survive on the tourism business. Vail Resorts had to make some unpopular decisions during this time and it was difficult to see the impact at a personal level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on the mountain communities and employees that are the soul of the company.

    Pros

    Free ski pass, nothing else

    Cons

    EVERYTHING. The company doesn't care about their employees in the slightest. They tell you one thing and do the opposite. They tell you the benefits are good then present them to you and they're garbage. You don't get treated very well. For a multi-million/billion dollar company they provide you with garbage equipment and don't update it for the programs they're trying to use which makes your job harder. You don't get filled in on information so you have to constantly ask management who doesn't know what they're talking about. It's a very bad work environment.
