    Pros

    At this point the only pro for working at Under Armour is the employee discount.

    Cons

    The new management is horrible and they cut hours to avoid having any full-time employees who would potentially receive benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire employees who are passionate about Under Armour.

    Pros

    Good music played in the store.
    Flexible hours.
    Very very good discount. 50% off + whatever sale is going on.
    You get to work in very comfortable clothing. Sweatpants, t-shirts, shorts, sneakers.

    Cons

    Random schedule hours. And usually not that many.
    Store manager is a pain to everyone.
    Can't call someone out for stealing even if they do it right in-front of you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be overly strict about things. Employees look forward to working with managers that take the time to help them instead of criticizing them every step of the way. Also don't choose favorite employees, and if you do, don't make it obvious like my manager.

    Cons

    Long hours upper management seems to not really care about employees only about getting numbers hard to come back day after day when you don't feel like you should come in at all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make coming to work more enjoyable have things run smoother and give employees more options to get employed at corporate even if they don't have degrees because sometimes people don't need school to be at a great job

    Pros

    Gym, friendly people, next to water, close to city, big place and lots to see and do, sports oriented, good pay.

    Cons

    A lot of the same personality types, Sports oriented, market heavy operations. Designs has little voice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify, Diversify, Diversify more people from the cultures and places that you want to sell product to in order to get a better understanding of what to market. More travel for designers, more inspirational trips, footwear and apparel designs are inspired by creativity not market heavy analytics and instructions from businessmen, it needs a more definite sense of the culture and market place standpoint.

    Pros

    Working for a aggressive branded company with a leader who has the drive and the passion to see his brand be the leader in the athletic industry.

    Cons

    Would have really loved an opportunity to grow within the company and it first it seamed that the sky was the limit but upper management changes really suppressed a lot of the managerial talent with any further advancement opportunities and drove away the talent who really wanted to make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bottom line is that people work for people. Build the bench, develop the team and support the members who really which to see the brand grow.
