Significant Culture Change

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Intrawest

ProsCompany is on the mend. The organization is much more streamlined, organized and efficient.
New corporate headquarters are beautiful and centrally located.

ConsThe culture is much more corporate than it was, which has eliminated. The motto was "We Work to Play", but that's no longer the case. Perks have been significantly eliminated.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication is key; let your employees know what's going on in a more timely manner.
Bring back some more of the "fun". This is a company that manages resorts!

Mostly it is a good company to work with.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

I have been working at Intrawest

ProsGood working environment; good culture but used to be much better; nice work/life balance; good centural location; pretty decent benifits.

Consthe pay scale tended to be on the lower than average level; lots of uncertainty over the past few years.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe senior management got pretty aloof over the past few years, due to financial uncertainty. It seemed that they cared about employees in general.

the resort development industry is a great place to work, Intrawest is always willing to teach a person new things.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Intrawest

ProsGreat work environment, great benefits, great people to work with, and beautiful resorts

ConsUnfortunately the resort development is basically non-existent at this time so there are no jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the experience people, not the one's with the lowest salary.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

poor for a long time but not bad in the long run

Ski Instructor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Intrawest

Proswork/life balance, Relaxed, Great activerties, Long termers earn decent wage

ConsSeasonal, Lack of real organisation, self inflated egos and need of actual business managers not just good skiers to run a business

Advice to Senior ManagementGet some professions in to run a fairly large business, If you want monkeys to do the job keep paying peanuts. The ski school really is in a pretty poor state, disorganised, lacking any real leadership or actual stratergy. make it a place that people are proud to work at. Make it a place where it is hard to get a job and hard to keep your job. There is to many people who do a very poor job, unprofessional, turn up looking terrible, dont perform or even care but are continually rehired, not pulled into line ect because of the believe that we are the best, garbage really, we charge the most and are the biggest, very different from the best.
