Current Employee - Assistant Buyer in Englewood, CO

I have been working at Sports Authority full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good people in a good location. It was fun and happy before someone came along and fired so many people. There are fun things like vendors setting up in the parking lot with giveaways and food trucks. Casual dress code is nice (no flip flops or t-shirts).

Cons

Old building, tiny gym (it's a sporting goods company!), unethical practices in regards to growth and salary (HR). Everyone is constantly scared so lots of micro-managing and useless "firedrills." Took away discount, flex-time, pandora...no one is happy here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay the people who matter, upgrade everything. At least pretend you care.

    Pros

    Cons

    Managers play favorites, throw others under the bus.
    Cliques nurtured by managers.
    Culture of blame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop believing what your lower managers tell you and get out there and experience the actual goings on for yourselves, you might be surprised at the difference between what you are told and what is real.
