I have been working at Vail Resorts part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The environment is pretty fluent with new people and new challenges surmounting daily. Makes work fun.

Cons

When the busy parts of the season end, the work can be sparse and unreliable.

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

    Pros

    Really great benefits (Health insurance, HSA, health clinics), Flex Time Office,

    Great company for young people who don't have families.

    Cons

    Unless you are in marketing, you don't get much attention.

    No real training. Sink or swim mentality

    Executive leadership doesn't really support family time.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to see more internal promotions.

    I have been working at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A ski pass, if you ski. Mediocre 401K plan, but at least there's a small company match.

    Cons

    Unorganized and micro-managed from the top. No reward for flexibility (working every day during winter or working non regular scheduled holidays). No reward for initiative or reason to suggest improvements to operations or vacationers experience. 401k plan has slightly higher than average lifetime fees. Great place if you want to climb the corporate ladder (you just won't be able to afford living in the mountain communities no matter which wrung you're on). Choose the Broomfield office if you start at less than the bare minimum of 45,000K as a career bound college grade.

    Advice to Management

    I won't waste more than a few words here.
