A great startup out of Denver with even better benefits
iOS Developer (Former Employee) –  Denver, COMarch 27, 2017
Inspirato was such a cool place to work, they offered all the perks you would imagine you could only get at Google, free snacks, and a weekly open bar. The work was very challenging, but I believe it created a balance.
Pros
Weekly happy hour
Cons
Work was very demanding

Vacation Specialist (Current Employee) –  Denver, COJanuary 18, 2017
Company no longer has a 401k match, overall low pay, no commuter benefit or parking, management is always a mess.

Employees are awesome and the culture is great! Employees get a free week of vacation from one of their properties each year.
Pros
Free vacation each year
Cons
Low salaries, management is a mess

Perfect fit for some, but most should stay away
Membership (Current Employee) –  Denver, COSeptember 2, 2015
I was extremely excited to join Inspirato. I love startups (this is my 3rd) and the opportunity they present. However, this has been the most disappointing employment experience of my career. The amazing travel benefit notwithstanding- the pay is bad when compared to Denver market, the benefits are the worst I've personally had, there is no work life balance, advancement is not based on merit, project management is an utter mess, and the CEO uses the company as a merit badge to impress his friends.

There are some good aspects. The location is amazing, the company has lots of smart and hardworking people, and for hospitality professionals it's a truly unique opportunity. It's also a great place if you are brand new to the workforce and want a "hip" place to call home while you beef up your resume. Also, some departments are islands of sanity in this sea of crazy. Marketing and SFDC are tight ships that are a pleasure to work with.

But burnout is the highest I've ever seen (nearly 1/3 of the accounting department quit last year, many without even having a new job- that's how bad it was), hourly employees are expected to be on call constantly, and if you are good at your job you will be passed over for promotions due to the need to keep those with subject matter knowledge locked in where they are. Truly the most dysfunctional company I've worked for. But the VC keeps flowing in, so maybe with that extra money some of these problems will start going away.
Pros
people, location, travel perks
Cons
pay, benefits, work life balance, leadership, career growth, employee development

Private destinations concierge (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLApril 15, 2013
A typical day was never the same. Ton's of support from management and team members. Excellent training! The hardest part of the job was the commute. Most enjoyable part was given the freedom to manage my duties.

excellent support

property locations

Not for the Ambitious.
Accounting (Former Employee) –  Denver, ColoradoMarch 2, 2013
Inspirato summed up in one word: Pretentious. Embodied by the CEO.

My job wasn't difficult or stressful. There was no real hope for advancement.

I saw a lot of people get axed (most of them probably shouldn't have been hired in the first place). The majority of them were getting paid too much.

Real overall rating is a generous 1.8 stars.
