    Pros

    Passionate, growing, building. It's a great Brand - will be one of the best of all time.

    Cons

    With as much growth, it is chaotic. As the company grows, it is poor at the change management and communication that comes along with that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to diversify Teams

    I have been working at Under Armour part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The employee discount is probably the best pro of working at Under Armour. I work with some great associates as well.

    Cons

    I feel that there is a minimal amount of perks. The only perk that comes to mind is the employee discount. The management, at least in my store, do not do anything. They kind of just stand around and boss everyone around. They would just moan about how many money they need to make in the day yet they just stand there. Additionally, requesting off can be a major issue. The company, like others have block out dates where you cannot request off. I understand - however, they belittle you if you absolutely need to take the day off. They would make you feel about it. I had a prior commitment where I would be out of state and the store manager was just yelling at me for no reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find love in your company. It's a great place to work but don't let your issues with the higher ups effect how you lead your associates. And also - do work. Do not just stand around and give people orders. I've worked in various other companies where the management are role models. In your case, not so much.

    Pros

    -Fairly Flexible Scheduling
    -Mostly Younger Employees
    -Good Intro To Sales/Customer Service

    Cons

    -Organization Not Great
    -Retail Hours (A LOT of after-closing hours)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add more incentives or sales commission for employees. There isn't a lot of motivation to do well as a part-time employee unless you're trying to move up to a management position. As a manager, it is hard to motivate employees to try to sell when there is 0 in it for them.

    I worked at Under Armour full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and the benefits are decent. Company is ethically responsible and cares about the brand and brand protection. Good training on on-boarding process. Decent business systems. Great for first-timers; but for those who come with experience it is a difficult experience. Brand is growing daily and has staying power.

    Cons

    Corporate structure works like a silo. Communication within company is inefficient and often people are scared to speak their minds openly. A lot of people pleasing happening. Office culture is very youthful. Maybe even a little too youthful. Feels like a giant frat house sometimes.

    I have been working at Under Armour as a contractor

    Pros

    The passion and energy for the brand is unlike anything I have experienced anywhere else. The product is great and easy to believe in. The company hosts tons of fun events for their employees and a great discount on apparel.

    Cons

    There are so many departments and often times efforts are duplicated. Decisions are not easily made as there are layers upon layers of approvals to go through. The average work week is 55-60 hours. It's intense, they expect a lot from you, but you will work with dedicated, talented people who are very passionate about the brand.

    Pros

    50% discount on all product.

    Cons

    Gossipy atmosphere, childish decison making processes. Feels more like a high school mentality than an office. Extremely low compensation for entry to mid level employees. Unbalanced sense of promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate who you hire, and respect the experience that brought them to your company.
