    Pros

    This company is not afraid to think outside the box and is willing to change with the birth of new ideas.

    Cons

    Employees become very loyal to the company, but the company is not as loyal to employees. Sales associates and Store managers become expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show more appreciation and effort to your team that represents your brand and believes in your product.

    I have been working at Under Armour full-time

    Pros

    Work content is always fun an interesting since the company is growing so fast. No matter what role you are in you get to learn a ton about business that often times has nothing to do with your job description. Some really amazing leaders that you can believe in and can't help but be infected by their passion.
    Everyone that works here believes in the product, wears it, and gives it to their friends and family as gifts (nice discount!). Great culture of fitness and health - lots of benefits like a really nice gym, cafeteria, and fun community/employee events.

    Cons

    Always moving so fast it sometimes feels as if we don't know which way we are going. Lots of leaders and not enough workers. Some (not all) of management got there more by being there at the right time and not by earning or deserving it. That gets frustrating and sometimes really gets in the way of the success a team can have when under one of those leaders. Getting promoted from within can be hard in some departments - there are so many people being brought in externally that you really have to fight internally to get the opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing - you drive an incredibly passionate organization that the employees deeply believe in.
    Try to make opportunities more readily available to current employees - expect them to earn the opportunity and prove they are the best choice - just make sure they have a fair chance at them.

    I worked at Under Armour

    Pros

    Great employee discount and great medical benefits. You get wear super comfy workout clothes to work everyday. You can get promoted from within the company.

    Cons

    Doesn't have a great training program for managers, need a great, comprehensive training manual. More and more micromanaging of stores, taking managers away from running their stores. Horrible pay for what's expected. An extremely profitable company, making more money every year, that isn't sharing that growth with their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your leaders to lead their business. Excessive micromanaging is counterproductive. Make retail stores a priority, not an afterthought, as it was communicated at the yearly leadership conference last year.

    I worked at Under Armour full-time (less than an year)

    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

    Pros

    Passionate and motivated teammates working for a common purpose - incredible company culture. Vibrant atmosphere. Makes for a cool day when you go from designing a product to working out in the gym with a UA sponsored athlete!

    Cons

    Extremely poor college recruiting process. Fantastic summer internship program but no follow-up afterwards in regards to full-time offers even though interns were told that they would be contacted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My biggest piece of advice is for management to get on bored with the college recruiting process - if you can't plan to hire new grads months before their graduation, you'll miss out on a lot of great teammates who want to make a difference at your company.
