    I have been working at Intrawest full-time

    Pros

    Never boring, great environment, interesting people, grand locations. And I do have to say they really provide good benefits. And a lot of diferrant types of jobs.

    Cons

    Because, it is a big company with a lot of employees. It can be hard to find team work among all the different departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the grand work by providing a safe and friendly workplace. And welcoming a lot of growth in the company. Thank you.

    Pros

    Interesting indusry, Nice co-workers, Nice office, Fun daytrips for work

    Boys club at the top with a relatively rotating door, Act like they are a non-conformist ski industry company when in fact they are most concerned with spreadsheets and Wall Street funders

    Advice to Management

    Be authentic, be honest and value people who give candid perspectives. Also diversify into non-bean counters and all guys at the top.

    I worked at Intrawest full-time (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 Management

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