A good place to work, if you know how to keep people out of your personal life.

Team Lead (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Academy Sports & Outdoors full-time for more than a year

ProsVery open to advancement opportunities, easy enough place to work, zoning standards higher than most companies. Pretty good pay. Co-workers make it the place that it is.

ConsManagement gossips more than any associate there and will not hesitate to hold personal grudges to stamp out any possibility for advancement if they are caught gossiping.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeeds to be more level headed management structure, they feel as if they are above the rules. Show up late, leave early. Gossip constantly. Show extreme favoritism.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
