    Not a terrible place to work, but the corporate mentality in some departments is cutthroat.

    Pros

    Some of the people are fantastic. In the advertising department, you work with such a vast variety of people -- it is really a great mix.

    Cons

    Somewhere back in the day, someone in management instilled a real blame mentality so there are people who will quickly throw you under the bus if it means saving their necks.

    Advice to Management

    Get the team in a place where they have each other's backs again rather than the infighting that can occur.

  2. A peek into the culture and work ethics prevelant at Sport Authority Elite.
