    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people who work for Corp VR and some of those people love the environment. I didn't fit in as the corp culture took shape; other people have thrived. Just not for me.

    Cons

    Bloated hyper-political culture in corporate office. Micromanagement from the very top is the rule for most corp departments. One warning to potential corp employees: the only connection you will have to the end-user product is the dreams of working for a ski/resort company that you had when you applied. You're not working for a ski resort; you're working for a holding company whose only master is the value of the stock held by Vail's institutional investors. VR will short anything to improve the next Q by just a nudge.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you're doing is clearly good enough for you. Stock is doing well, revenue (and debt) keep going up, and your portfolio keeps growing like some weird expensive Disney/Walmart explosion. But how many more floors of analysts do you really need? Empower your lieutenants and step away to work on big picture stuff.

    I worked at Vail Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun industry to work in. Top-shelf health benefits.

    Cons

    Some departments are productive and get results while others are a "revolving door" because of poor supervision and employees who only want to get Vail on their resume.

    Advice to Management

    Commitment to company goals felt a little shallow. Some people bought in and worked hard, while others gave it lip service and spent most of their day trying to be seen by senior management.
