    I worked at Intrawest full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free ski pass, discounts for lodging, food and gear. Great location of corporate headquarters. Bill Jensen and Juan Perez are both great leaders with decent communication with employees.

    Cons

    General Counsel is incompetent and uncommunicative. Often felt that employees are not appreciated. Especially those at resorts. Promotions are few and far between. Most managers have no managerial training and have no idea what to do with their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do the analysis before asking your employees to take 2 weeks of unpaid Mandatory Time Off.
