Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The beautiful environment of working and living in the mountains. An annual ski season pass and discount coupons for friends and family. Employee housing when available.

Cons

They get very cheap labor from many highly educated college graduates for menial jobs and imply that advancement is possible. Doesn't happen.

Advice to Management

Use the talents of your college educated employees who take any job available to live and work in a culture they love, and let them grow. They could be your greatest assets if you let them.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    free ski pass, and coffee

    Cons

    Poor management, they are clueless about lower level operations. They promote the laziest people who kiss the most butt. Their turnover is super high, over 70% in the last year. HR is worthless. If you are a yes-man and like being overworked and underpaid, -this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some competent open minded managers that don't discriminate against employees based on your sex.
