    Pros

    Great and interesting business model. Great opportunity to interact with all levels of the organization. Management team is not afraid to make tough decisions.

    Cons

    Vail Resorts rests on their laurels that they have the Vail Resorts brand name. They think everyone in the world would want to work for VR, despite the fact their pay is significantly below market.


  2. "What started as a great company was ruined when taken public."

    Pros

    It is a great mountain with a terrific lift system. The town is well designed for destination guests. Easy access to Denver.

    Cons

    This company has no real interest in the employees. Staff turn over is a huge constant problem. Pay is so low it creates an unsustainable existance living in the Valley. Middle management is afraid to speak out for the front line employees. If you make waves in Vail Resorts you lose your job. The company CEO is completely out of touch with the community and the employees- focused mainly on stock price and quarterlies- spends all his time in private clubs.
    The mountain is so overcrowded it is dangerous. Parking is expensive. Food is expensive. Employee benefits are constantly being eroded.

    Advice to Management

    Move the corporate headquarters back to the mountains- prove to the employees that you love the sports as much as the bottom line.
